For the first time since 2016, the Enterprise Wildcats (16-4) are ranked in the Alabama Sports Writers Association’s Class 7A Top 10.
The Wildcats cracked the rankings at No. 10 for the first time last week after being nominated – but not ranked – each week so far this season.
Ahead of Enterprise in the Top 10 is Fairhope, Vestavia Hills, Spain Park, Huntsville, James Clemens, Hoover, Thompson, Albertville and Oak Mountain. Enterprise defeated Thompson and lost to Oak Mountain earlier this year.
Enterprise is currently on a six-game winning streak and has won 10 of its last 11 games. The Wildcats captured the Class 7A, Area 3 regular season championship after going 6-0 in area play.
The Wildcats boast one of the more athletic teams the school has put on a floor in years, led by junior Quentin Hayes, who averages 14 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals per game. Fellow junior Elijah Terry is averaging 12 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals per game. Senior Josh McCray is averaging eight points, five rebounds and two assists.
After Enterprise closes out the regular season with home games against Greenville and Carroll, they will host the first round of the Area 3 Tournament on Feb. 10.
