To all Basketball Fans,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you all to the 7th Annual Allstate Sugar Bowl National Prep Classic.  Riverside Academy is proud to partner with the Allstate Sugar Bowl, the Sports Medicine Center at Thibodaux Regional, WGNO TV, Jefferson Parish Convention and Visitors Bureau, Lucky Coin, and Friends of Prep Sports, to once again host this wonderful sporting event.  We welcome all of our out-of-state participants and fans to the New Orleans area.

As these games not only excite the players and coaches, the parents and basketball fans from around the country are to be commended for putting their best foot forward by supporting their children and their teams.

Riverside Academy proudly serves Reserve, La., and the River Parishes for 46 years, believing in our student athletes, both academically and athletically.  We take pride in the Riverside commitment to the principles of good sportsmanship, competitiveness, and the family atmosphere.  We encourage and represent the high level of spirit and achievement that our high school athletics presents to all of us.

We request your cooperation in good sportsmanship by your positive actions toward our players, coaches, and officials. We ask that everyone involved assist us in ensuring the safety of all participants and spectators in attendance this week.

We ask that you sit back, relax, and enjoy some of the best basketball in the country.  Thanks again to all of our sponsors who help put on this fantastic high school basketball tournament.  May God continue to bless you all, and throughout the New Year.

Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler
