Olympic Sports Report

This definitely won't become a regular feature because of all the things I will write about, this will be the one that gets lost in the suffle. However, I do plan to give some of the less recognized sports some pub because, well, they deserve it. Every Division I athlete puts in just as much effort as football players and baseball players and do it not for the spotlight, but for the love of the game. I realize most of you won't read it, but we're going to throw it to the wall anyway and see what sticks every once in a while.

 

  • The LSU volleyball team has come agonizingly to upsetting two top 10 teams this year. Against both Stanford and Nebraska, the Tigers led two games to one, but couldn't close the deal and lost 3-2 both times. The team is on the cusp of the top 25 and gets another shot at a big win when it plays Long Beach State this weekend. Brittnee Cooper and Brittney Johnson have been outstanding so far.
  • The LSU soccer team, ranked in the preseason, played extremely well in an exhibition to beat a top 20 Texas squad. However, exhibitions in soccer are similar to what you might see in the NFL, so take it with the appropriate grain of salt. Since dropping their opener to Memphis, the Tigers have been unbeaten in their last three. Melissa Clark leads the way with three goals while Mo Isom has pitched two shutouts in four contests.
  • The LSU women's golf team is playing in the national collegiate match play event and dominated Georgia. However, a date with top-seeded Florida awaits.
  • The LSU men's golf squad is ranked 17th nationally.

Times are slow early on. Hopefully there will be more great things to report on down the road.
