IHSAA Girls Poll shows competitive year for Purdue recruits
If the first Associated Press poll is any indication, getting tickets early for the 2006 IHSAA state championships should be a priority for fans of future Boilermakers.
In Class 4A, North Central and Amber Harris begin the season at No. 1 and East Chicago and Dee Dee Jernigan are at No. 6. In Class 3A, No. 2 Brebeuf was edged out by No. 1 South Bend St. Joseph's, but is followed closely by Evansville Memorial and FahKara Malone at No. 3.
Another school to keep an eye on is Attica, ranked No. 6 in Class A. A schedule that includes ten games against 2A teams and three 3A games should provide solid tests for Brittany Rayburn and company. A January 5th game against West Lafayette should be a hot local ticket.
