LSU Softball Vaults to Top 10 Finish in Both Polls

LSU Softball Vaults to Top 10 Finish in Both Polls
LSU

POSTED: Tuesday, June 12, 2012 - 4:15pm

UPDATED: Tuesday, June 12, 2012 - 4:19pm

The LSU softball team secured No. 6 and No. 7 national rankings Tuesday as the ESPN.com/USA Softball and USA Today/NFCA Top 25 released their final polls for the 2012 season.

LSU made the biggest gain in both polls after qualifying for the program’s third Women’s College World Series. The Tigers were only the third team to reach the WCWS after knocking off two national seeds on the road dating back to the 2005 season when the current regional/super regional format was adopted.

LSU’s No. 6 ranking in the ESPN.com/USA Softball poll is the program’s highest since May 15, 2007, while the No. 7 rating in the USA Today/NFCA poll is the program’s best since February 19, 2008. The Tigers have been ranked in 94 of the last 103 editions of both polls going back to the start of the 2006 campaign.

Joining LSU from the SEC in the final rankings is national champion Alabama (No. 1/No. 1), Tennessee (No. 6/No. 7), Georgia (No. 10/No. 10) and Florida (No. 18/No. 16). Arkansas and Kentucky received votes in both polls. The Tigers also met Oklahoma (No. 2/No. 2) California (No. 3/No. 3), Arizona State (No. 4/No. 4), South Florida (No. 8/No. 8), Missouri (No. 11/No. 11), Michigan (No. 15/No. 15), Texas A&M (No. 19/No. 19) and Florida State (RV, No. 22) during the 2012 season.

LSU finished its inaugural season under head coach Beth Torina with a 40-25 record. It marked the 14th time in 16 seasons that the Tigers finished with at least 40 victories since softball was reinstated in 1997.

LSU is slated to return 14 letterwinners sparked by NFCA First-Team All-American selection Rachele Fico along with All-SEC Freshman pick A.J. Andrews.
