Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director


The Louisiana high school baseball season kicked off on Monday February 19, 2024 with regular season action beginning under LHSAA regulations. Leading up to opening day, we published our team previews ahead of the 2024 spring season, touching on programs spanning all classifications, counting down through the official Prep Baseball Louisiana Preseason Power 25 Rankings.

Since Opening Day, our scouts have been out and about covering the 2024 season and will be publishing scout blogs and additional in-season content, such as our Power 25 updates, Player of the Week awards, Scout Blogs, Diamond Notes, and more.

The Top 5


The Top 5 remains relatively unchanged with only one new team entering the final group of five, as we get ready for the playoffs.  Catholic BR is still our #1 team, for the ninth consecutive week, after going 4-0 last week.  The Bears are the first team to hold onto to the #1 spot for every week during the season, which is an impressive feat.  Barbe checks in at #2 for the third straight week.  The Bucs won five games last week with their biggest coming on Friday to district-rival Sulphur, which they won in walk-off fashion in the bottom of the 7th inning.  Sam Houston moves up to the #3 spot in this final regular season update.  The Broncos went a perfect 5-0 last week with two big wins over district-rival Sulphur.  West Monroe moves back one spot to #4.  The Rebels went 3-1 last week and their season record now sits at 25-7.  Mandeville checks in at #5 for the second straight week with an overall record of 24-7.  The Skippers capped off a fantastic regular season by winning the district championship tournament last week.




Hahnville may be the hottest team in the entire state, as they move up to #15 in this update.  The Tigers have won their last eleven straight and went 3-0 last week with wins over Destrehan twice and Brother Martin.  

+ Benton hit a rough patch in the middle of the season, but finish on a high note, as they move up to #16 this week.  The Tigers have won their last six straight and went 3-0 last week with two district wins over Parkway.

+ Teurlings Catholic makes their Power 25 debut this week at the #25 spot, and are playing good baseball at the right time.  The Rebels won the district title last week with two wins over rival St. Thomas More.
