EMERSON, Georgia – The fourth-seeded LSU beach volleyball team is ready to go at the CCSA Tournament held at Lakepoint Sporting Community Center, with pool-play schedule to go Friday-Saturday.

LSU is 22-10, 7-5 in CCSA play, and is heading into the tournament having won 15 of its last 16 matches. The Tigers have been ranked No. 8 in the AVCA coaches poll for the past three weeks.

“We have been building this season with the expectation to play really well down the stretch.” Said coach Russell Brock. “The next task is the CCSA Tournament. It’s loaded with talented, ranked teams and we are excited to test ourselves this weekend.”

The Tigers were slotted in Pool A along with No. 1 Florida State, No. 5 Georgia State, No. 8 Florida Atlantic and No. 9 UNC-Wilmington.
