MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Miss Louisiana Sportsman's Paradise Tori Thompson won the talent portion and Miss Capital City Lacey Sanchez took physical fitness honors in the first day of preliminary competition in the Miss Louisiana 2013 Pageant in Monroe.

Thirty-six women are competing in this year's pageant in hopes of winning the Miss Louisiana 2013 crown Saturday night. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Miss Louisiana Pageant in Monroe.

Thompson, whose talent was playing the piano, won the talent competition on Wednesday with a performance of "Dance of Fire."

A new addition to pageant-week activities this year will be the Miss Louisiana Variety Show, which will feature former Miss Louisianas performing their talent. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
