Three Acadiana Area Girls High School Basketball Teams Vying for State Championships
This week, the Acadiana area has been well represented in the 2023 LHSAA Girls' Basketball Marsh Madness tournament in Hammond.
Four teams made it to their division's semi-finals, and three teams advanced to the finals. (And two were playing each other in the semis.)
Last night in the Division I Select Semifinals, #2 seeded Lafayette High knocked off #3 St. Thomas More by a final score of 50-34 to advance to the championship game against the top seed John Curtis Christian.
In the Division II Select Semifinals, #1 seeded Lafayette Christian had no problem with #4 Peabody yesterday afternoon winning by a score of 50-13.
They'll move on to play #3-seeded St. Louis Catholic in the finals of that bracket.
And the final Acadiana area team playing for a state championship is JS Clark Leadership Academy out of Opelousas. The #3 Lady Dawgs had no problem against #2 Family Christian, knocking them off 59-24 in the semifinals of Division V Select.
They'll face off against top-seeded Oak Hill in the championship game.
