Miss Louisiana USA 2023 is Sylvia Masters

Miss Sportsman's Paradise USA Sylvia Masters was crowned Miss Louisiana USA 2023 on Saturday, February 4 at the Jefferson Performing Arts Center in Metairie, Louisiana.

The 27-year-old news anchor and accomplished musician from Houma succeeded KT Scannell and will represent Louisiana at Miss USA 2023 in Reno, Nevada this fall.

Rounding out the Top 5 were first runner-up Josie Stephens of Acadiana, second runner-up Lexie Martin of Baton Rouge, third runner-up Trinitee Johnson of Southeast, and fourth runner-up Ella Clark of Crescent City.

No stranger to pageantry, the new Miss Louisiana USA already joined the state competition several times before winning the state title. She was named third runner-up in 2021 and second runner-up in 2022.

Sylvia is a graduate of Nicholls State University with a degree in mass communication and journalism. She is currently a morning anchor and reporter for KLFY News 10 in Lafayette covering news and events that affect Acadiana and Southwest Louisiana.

Miss Louisiana Teen USA 2023 was also held last night at the same venue and the title went to Averi Blyss Crawford of St. Bernard Parish. She will proceed to the Miss Teen USA 2023 pageant later this year.

Juliana Badigner of Baton Rouge, Condoleezza Semien of East Baton Rouge, Madelyn Morgan of Lafayette, and Addison Petry of Crescent City were announced as runners-up.

Recently proclaimed Miss USA 2022 Morgan Romano from North Carolina was present at the event.
