MONROE — Cinderella is alive and decked out in a Dubach High School uniform.
The Hornets are crashing the Louisiana High School Athletic Association’s annual boys’ basketball championship game.

It’s definitely a grand “ball” awaiting Dubach High next week when they face Pelican (a 59-58 semifinal winner over Phoenix) for the state title.
