LSU Softball sweeps Tiger Invitational Tournament
BATON ROUGE - The Lady Tiger softball team took care of business over the weekend, sweeping their Tiger Invitational Tournament with five wins in three days to remain perfect on the season.
As exciting as the 10-0 start is for the LSU softball team, it's the variety of ways they've won that's been most impressive. Whether blowing out a team by six or seven runs or squeezing out a one-run victory, the team has shown a versatility that gives them confidence in any situation.
"We are such a tough team I feel bad for the other teams actually because I wouldn't know how to play us," sophomore infielder Sahvanna Jaquish told Sports 2's Chris Price.
Head Coach Beth Torina agrees.
"We have a lot of kids that have a lot of different tools," she explains. "Understanding how to use them is something we have to continue to grow into, but we definitely have kids with tools."
Some say the quick start was unexpected but not the team.
"Yes I saw it coming," freshman pitcher Allie Walljasper says. "Our team is awesome. Everyone gets along really well."
Coach Torina says she's not worried about complacency.
"We're gonna work Tuesday like we're 0-10, and then show up like we're 10-0," she explains.
The Lady Tigers will look to stay undefeated this weekend when they head to California for their first road games of the season.
