🔼 Show Stopping. The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association named Gavin Guidry to the 2024 Stopper of the Year Watch List! The award goes to the top relief pitcher in college baseball. Gavin became a reliable arm as a freshman last season, posting a 3-0 record and three saves. He sat down to talk about his evolution as an LSU Baseball player, his relationship with catcher Hayden Travinski, and looking ahead to the 2024 season.

🔼 Day One Done. The softball team beat Georgia Tech 12-8 for their first win of the weekend at the Clearwater Invitational. Raeleen Gutierrez was just a single shy of completing the cycle. She went 3-for-4 and added her third home run of the season. Karli Petty also went 3-for-4 with two RBIs and a run scored. Raelin Chaffin improved to 2-0 in the circle and threw five strikeouts. They’ll take on No. 22 Northwestern tomorrow, No. 6 Oklahoma State and No. 5 Washington on Saturday, and end the weekend against Minnesota on Sunday.
