The Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) released the 2024 girls high school playoff brackets earlier this week and Acadiana is well represented.

A total of 38 schools from the Acadiana area will be vying for a chance to hoist up a state championship trophy.

The first round of the playoffs kicks off on Thursday, February 15, 2024. However, the higher-ranked schools have first-round byes. (The number of teams with a bye varies per bracket.)


The LHSAA Girls' Marsh Madness takes place February 2 through March 2, 2024, at the University Center in Hammond, Louisiana. The final four teams remaining in each division make it to Hammond.

There will be a total of 10 state champions crowned -- Divisions I-V Select and Divisions I-V Non-Select.
