The battle of the titans trilogy for 2016 came to a conclusion Monday in Slidell and two-time defending Division IV state champion Pope John Paul II emerged victorious.
Just two days after losing to Mount Carmel in the Kenner Classic, the Jaguars, ranked No. 19 in the nation by MaxPreps, extracted revenge with a 25-17, 25-13, 22-25, 25-22 win over the Cubs. The win gave Pope John Paul II a 2-1 edge over the two-time defending Division I state champion Cubs as the Jaguars beat Mount Carmel in straight sets in New Orleans back on Sept. 27.
Sarah Trosclair and Ansley Tullis led the offensive attack for the Jaguars with 13 kills each while Milayne Danna dished up 53 assists. Csamille Dedeaux added 13 digs. Ellie Holzman led Mount Carmel with 14 kills, 17 digs and 12 blocks while Sarah Nieland had 16 assists.
The Jaguars are the top-rated team in the most recent LHSAA power ratings in Division IV while Mount Carmel is second in the latest Division I power ratings.
Pope John Paul II (38-2) is back in action today at home against Independence at 4:30 p.m. while Mount Carmel (29-11) hosts St. Scholastica Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.
