"as in all previous attempts ... a vote for a singular playoff system for the sports of football, baseball, softball and basketball in the state’s highest classification failed by a significant margin." - Ron Brocato
According to Skip Chatelain, the assignment secretary for the Greater New Orleans Football Officials Association, neither Ecole Classique nor Ridgewood Prep have submitted football schedules for the 2021 season. In addition, the Louisiana High School Athletic Association has neither school listed in its 2021 master schedule.
Sports editor Ron Brocato has selected the Clarion Herald's 2021 Elite Girls' Basketball team, which includes St. Mary's Academy's Tomyree Thompson as outstanding player and Ursuline coach Chris Goff as outstanding coach.
