LSU News & Notes

LSU softball’s finally back on the road

When LSU plays Auburn in its opening game in the Women’s College World Series on Thursday, it will have been 31 days since the Tigers played a game anywhere other than Tiger Park. But LSU is headed to the only place it would rather play than Tiger Park — ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, where it will try to win the program’s first national championship. “It has been an amazing three weeks for this team,” coach Beth Torina said. “I feel like starting back in the fall this team was on a mission. They worked so hard, and they truly earned this moment.”

LSU enters regional that includes old rival

History will have to wait for LSU. The past and (potential) immediate future need to take a break as well. The No. 1-ranked Tigers have plenty of present to serve as motivation at this stage of the 2015 season. Regional time is here for LSU, and they have some very familiar company this weekend at Alex Box Stadium with Tulane, the No. 3 seed, headed in for a postseason visit for the first time since 2003. The Tigers are the No. 2 national seed, meaning they would host a Super Regional if the get through this weekend.

Former Tiger Venus Wins ATP Doubles Title

LSU tennis alumni Michael Venus of New Zealand paired with Mate Pavic of Croatia to win the Open de Nice Côte d’Azur doubles title on Saturday. The duo broke on two of their five opportunities and saved five of the nine break points they faced to earn a close victory over Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau by a score of 7-6(4), 2-6, 10-8. "It was a really good day," said Venus. "For us to win our first title together, we are really excited. It is a great build up for next week going into the French Open. Hopefully we can continue playing well."

How many Division I programs made the postseason?

The NCAA on Monday announced the field for the 64-team Division I baseball tournament, bringing to a close the final postseason field for the major revenue sports in college athletics. Which brings us to our annual tradition of tracking all the programs that reached the promised land on the gridiron, on the hardwood and on the diamond. Once again, it’s not many. While we’re at it, bringing in the three major women’s sports – volleyball, basketball, softball – whittles the list down to two: LSU and Texas.
