BATON ROUGE – Eight players from LSUs beach volleyball team are set to earn a degree from LSU either this weekend or over the Summer.
This class has helped lead the beach volleyball to great success. The Tigers have consistently been one of the nation’s top teams. They have also helped lead the beach program to the Tiger Cup twice which goes to the LSU team with the most production in the areas of competitive success, academic accomplishment and community service participation.
