White Castle Bulldogs have made their way to a LHSAA 1A Finals berth.  No. 4 WCHS punched their ticket to the finals after earning an opening win over No. 29 D’Arbonne Woods Charter, 96-46, Regional round victory over No. 13 Grand Lake, 77-46, Quarterfinal victory over No. 12 Haynesville last Friday, 65-46 and 58-42 victory over No. 1 Sicily Island in the 1A Semi-finals on Tuesday.

Big men Ja’Tyre Carter and Princeton Young, along with Unique Young, Kenneth Brack, Koye Ruffin and Darian Pierce will play in the 1A Finals on Friday, March 10 at Burton Coliseum in Lake Charles.

The young squad was forced to step up this postseason and replace shooter Tamarcus Fair after losing him to an injury earlier in the season.

The Bulldogs have their best chance ever at earning themselves a 1A state title this Friday as they await to face the winner of the other semi-final matchup between No. 6 Tensas and No. 2 Lincoln Prep.

Results from the Tensas/Lincoln Prep semi-final matchup have not been reported before the press deadline.  For more information, check us out online at www.postsouth.com
