Cecilia High’s Lady Bulldog basketball team opened the 2017-18 season by losing their first four games. But coach Jasmine Narcisse’s squad shook off the early defeats and proceeded to win their remaining 22 games and sweep to a 10-0 championship in District 5-4A action.
The Lady ’Dogs wrapped up regular season play last week by beating parish rivals St. Martinville (49-32) and Breaux Bridge (53-41) and now turn their attention to the playoffs.
As of last Friday Cecilia was ranked No. 17 in the LHSAA’s unofficial Class 4A power ratings.
