Catholic High of New Iberia - State Championship Parade

STATE CHAMPS BABY WOOOOOOOO!!!

Champions get rings, trophies, and parades.Like sprinkles, parades are for winners. Last night Catholic High marched the streets of New Iberia.
Catholic High was one of three Acadiana teams to win a title in last week's football state championships joining Lafayette Christian Academy and Welsh. The Panther's last State Championship win was snagged back in 1962, a 55 year wait. 

"You know I still think its something that everybody's processing. Something that hasn't happened in 55 years. So well you know not only as a coach here at Catholic High but born and raised here in New Iberia. I graduated from here, played ball here. My 3 older brothers were quarterbacks here and I think this parade is just icing on the cake." says Coach Brent Indest.
