After week 3 of high school football, plenty of area teams are ranked in the top 10 of their respective class LSWA (Louisiana Sports Writers Association) poll.

(All rankings are based on a compilation of votes from the writers of the LSWA)

The fourth top 10 poll for the 2021 season was released this morning, with ten teams representing the Acadiana area ranked, including one at the very top.

In Class 5A, Acadiana dropped a few spots after their 14-13 loss to LCA on Friday. Even at 1-2, the Rams are still ranked 6th, with their two losses coming to the 1st place team in 5A and 2A.

Carencro and STM rank 6th and 7th respectively in 4A, while St. Martinville's 3-0 start has the steady at 8th in 3A.

Lafayette Christian Academy (LCA) remains the solidified #1 team in 2A after their impressive win at Acadiana. Also remaining in the 2A top 10 poll is Notre Dame at 5th and Loreauville at 7th.

In Class 1A, Vermilion Catholic fell just outside the top 10 following their loss to Abbeville, but St. Edmund entered the top 10 for the first time this season, coming in at #8.
