The No. 18-seeded Green Devils ended their season 18-14 against No. 15 South Terrebonne,
“Eighteen wins for the second consecutive year is pretty impressive,” head coach Tait Dupont said. “We had a tough first-round game against South Terrebonne, who just went up to Neville and beat the No. 2 team in the state in two games.”
“We had 10 seniors this year, and I’m going to miss all those guys, but I know they will be successful in the future in whatever occupation they choose,” he said. “We have a good group coming back next year, and I expect us to build up on the last two seasons and get more wins next year and go deep in the playoffs. I can’t wait to start with our off-season program and get these guys stronger for next season. Geaux, Green Devils.”
South Terrebonne was set to face No. 7 South Lafourche in a Best of 3 series that begins Friday and ends with a doubleheader Saturday.
