Because of the coronavirus pandemic, LSU gymnastics never had a chance to get the post season and make a run for the 2020 national championship.
That’s why the Tigers eagerly await the upcoming 2021 season with the schedule being released Wednesday. LSU has nine meets against teams that finished in the top 25 last season.
The Tigers will host six meets — Oregon State, Georgia, Florida, New Hampshire, Missouri and Illinois — inside the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. LSU finished No. 1 in the Southeastern Conference and No. 2 in the nation with an average of 11,417 fans each meet in 2020.
LSU will travel to New Orleans to compete for its fourth-straight SEC Championship on March 20 at the Smoothie King Center. The 2019 squad captured the SEC title in front of a record crowd of 10,505 fans.
The Tigers will compete for the program’s 31st berth in the NCAA Regionals on April 1-3 at either Utah, Missouri, New Hampshire or West Virginia.
The NCAA Championships will take place April 16-17 at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas. The championships will mark the first event in the brand new arena and the second with the eight-team format.
