For the first time since 2001, St. Marya��s Academy is headed to the Final Four. The Cougars cinched a seat in the Sugar Bowl/LHSAA Girls Marsh Madness with a stunning victory over reigning Division III state championship Northlake Christian.A�Now they are just two wins away from hanging another state championship banner in the gym beside the coveted championship won in 1998.
St. Marya��s Academy plays Riverside in Wednesdaya��s semifinal in Alexandria. A win there and they would advance to the championship game to play either St. Thomas Aquinas or rival St. Katharine Drexel Prep in what would most certainly be an a�?all-New Orleans showdown.a�?
