After just missing the cut for the top 10 in the initial Associated Press Illinois Prep Basketball Poll of the 2020-21 season, the unbeaten Seneca Lady Irish broke through this week the same way they’ve been breaking down opponents.
The Lady Irish [8-0] came in at No. 9 in the AP’s Class 2A girls poll, just ahead of No. 10 Quincy Notre Dame, which was No. 2 in the opening poll. Port Byron Riverdale [6-0] is No. 1 in 2A, while Fieldcrest is receiving votes but has fallen out of the top 10. Amboy in 1A, Simeon in 3A and Hersey in 4A also hold No. 1 spots.
