All four Iberville Parish high schools earned a spot in their respective playoff brackets which were revealed on Sunday.

Plaquemine High, the parish’s lone 4A club, earned the No. 28 seed and will face off on the road against No. 5 North DeSoto on Tuesday.

Plaquemine ended their regular season 4-4 overall in District 6-4A in third place behind Livonia and St. Michael both at 7-1.  If the Devils pull off the upset, they will most likely advance to take on No. 8 Neville.

In perhaps the most intriguing first round matchup in the parish, the No. 13 East Iberville Tigers will host parish rival No. 20 White Castle this week.

The Tigers ended their regular season with a 3-9 record in District 6-1A, and just came off a two-game series win over their round one rivals.

The Bulldogs finished with an overall district record of 2-8, just ahead of 1-12 Southern Lab.  The winner will advance to take on No. 4 LaSalle.

Rounding out the parish squad in the newly created Division IV bracket, the St. John Eagles earned themselves the No. 7 overall seed and will open round one at home against No. 10 overall Houma Christian.  

SJHS ended their season with a 11-1 record and claimed the 6-1A crown after defeating East Iberville in two straight matchup.s

If the St. John Eagles win, they will most likely advance to take on No. 2 Cedar Creek.
