“This is amazing,” Wildcats coach Stephen Robicheaux said after the game. “I’m so happy for these kids. It’s never about us but these have gone through a lot, been through a lot of adversity but they stayed with the program, they stayed with Destrehan High School, they did everything they had to do to be successful and here we are going to the Superdome.”

The Wildcats will face Acadiana in the final, the same school that eliminated them in their last trip to the dome in 2014.
