Nine LSU Sports Ranked, Six in Top 10
BATON ROUGE – For the second time in three weeks, LSU has nine of its sports teams currently ranked among the Top 25 teams in the nation.
Of those nine teams, six are ranked in the Top 10 led by the Tiger baseball team, which is ranked No. 1 in the nation by Perfect Game and No. 2 by Baseball America and in the USA Today Coaches Poll.
Other LSU teams in the Top 10 include: the softball team at No. 3, women’s gymnastics at No. 4, men’s track and field at No. 4, women’s golf at No. 6 and men’s golf at No. 9.
The LSU women’s track and field team is ranked No. 14, while the women’s tennis team is No. 24 and men’s tennis team No. 25.
LSU’s sand volleyball team, which is just in its second year of existence, is the only LSU sport currently in-season that’s not ranked among the Top 25 teams in the nation.
So far this year, the LSU men’s and women’s indoor track and field teams both finished in the Top 10 at the NCAA Championships; the football team played in a bowl game for a school-record 15th consecutive season; the men’s and women’s basketball teams advanced to the NCAA Tournament; and the volleyball team reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
LSU is currently on track to have 17 of its 21 sports teams reach post-season play.
