🔼 Queens Of The Boot. The seventh-ranked LSU softball team took down No. 25 Louisiana-Lafayette last night, 4-2. Sydney Berzon earned the win in the circle after throwing a complete game with two runs allowed and three strikeouts. Taylor Pleasants, McKenzie Redoutey, and Maci Bergeron had two hits each in the win. This is the 15th game the Tigers have recorded 10 or more hits.

🔼 Bayou Bombers. LSU baseball got back in the win column with a 6-3 win over New Orleans last night. The Tigers launched three home runs thanks to Jared Jones, Hayden Travinski, and Brady Neal. Christian Little earned the win after 1.1 innings of no runs or hits. They’ll hit the road again to Missouri on Friday.

🔼 We’re Hosting. The men’s tennis SEC Tournament will be played here at the LSU Tennis Complex this week! The Tigers got the week started with two 7-0 wins over Alcorn State on Monday. They’ll kick off the tournament today, playing 12-seed Ole Miss at noon. You can click here to purchase tickets or watch live.

🔼 Back On Top. This week’s USTFCCCA rankings are out and the Tigers are back on top! The women’s track & field team moved back into the No. 1 spot, while the men’s team stayed at No. 4. The Tigers now have 21 marks in the top 10 of the national rankings, including Michaela Rose with a nation-leading 800m time and Claudio Romero with a nation-leading discus throw.

🔼 Hot Shot. After a phenomenal few weeks of competition, Claudio Romero was named the SEC Men’s Field Athlete of the Week! A week after winning the Chilean Championship discus-throw title, he took gold in the same event at the Tom Jones Memorial Invitational. He recorded a nation-leading throw of 64.96 meters, ranking second on the LSU all-time list.
