Going into district games, Newman was ranked in sixteenth in power-points in the division. On January 5th, they entered their first district game since pre-Katrina and beat South Plaquemines High School at home.

The starting line-up was Katherine Vogt, Diamond Holmes, Bailey Nelson, Trinity Williams and Audrey Singer. Significant contributions were also made by Eliza Nieset, Bria Joseph, and Shoshana Cohen. Taking stats for the game was Lily Moise and Shereese Verret and Alli Trapp and Anjaleah Domino were filming.
