Beach Ranked as No. 4 AVCA Team

BATON ROUGE – With Selection Sunday just five days away, the LSU Beach Volleyball team came in as the No. 4 team in the latest AVCA Poll released on Tuesday.

Eight teams will be invited to Gulf Shores to compete at the NCAA Championship. LSU has been ranked inside the top-four throughout the entire season and the Tigers expect to hear their name called on Sunday.

The NCAA Championship will begin next Friday and will go May 7-9. The tournament is a double-elimination tournament hosted just outside of The Hangout. All of the matches will air live on the ESPN family of networks.

With student-athlete safety at the forefront during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, public ticket sales and media will not be allowed on-site for the championship. Due to the site size, the need for physical distancing and NCAA’s COVID-19 protocols, only participating teams will be allowed ticket access.
