LSUA Athletics Continues to Impress

LSUA Athletics continues to dominate the Red River Athletic Conference.

Once again, it has been a stellar semester on the hardwood, court, and field for the LSUA Athletic Teams.

The spring semester began with the LSUA men’s basketball team marching through the regular season and into postseason play with a perfect record. While the team fell in the NAIA National Tournament Semifinals, the Generals ended the season with an impressive 34-1 record while setting the record for the most basketball wins of any Louisiana school in a single season. The Generals are the three time defending Red River Athletic Conference Regular Season Champions and have also never lost a game at home. With new signees on board, it looks like the 2017-2018 campaign will also be a good one.

The LSUA baseball team also made it to postseason play after winning the Red River Athletic Conference Regular Season Title for the third year in a row. After falling in the Hattiesburg Bracket of the NAIA National Championship Tournament Opening Round, the Generals finished the season with a 33-24 record.

Meanwhile, the LSUA softball team is making its third trip to the NAIA Softball World Series in four years. The Generals swept through the Alexandria Bracket of the NAIA Softball Tournament Opening round and are headed to Clermont, Florida. LSUA will go into the World Series as the 5th seed and will play its first game on Friday, May 26 against Davenport (Michigan). In addition to making it to the World Series, LSUA also collected its third straight Red River Athletic Conference Tournament Championship in 2017.

The LSUA tennis team also continues to impress by being ranked #9 in the country. The team made its third straight appearance in the NAIA National Tournament in Mobile, Alabama after winning both the Red River Athletic Conference title and the Regional Tournament title for the third year in a row. The tennis team advanced to the NAIA Quarterfinals for the first time before being eliminated by the defending champions. Still, the team finished the season with an impressive 19-4 record.

The second LSUA team to make it to the final four of its respective national tournament this year was LSUA rugby. The team went undefeated this year through the 15s season and made it to the National Small College Rugby Organization Champions Cup National Championship. The team finished with a 17-0 regular season record and earned several titles including the Battleship Tournament in Mobile, Alabama, Deep South Conference Championship, South Cup, and Region II Mid-Atlantic championship.
