No. 3 ranked Sandy Tigs enjoy a perfect weekend in their LSU Beach Invitational

Third-ranked LSU invited five teams to its LSU Beach Invitational Saturday and Sunday at the LSU Beach Volleyball Stadium.

And the Tigers sent all of them home losers, including No. 16 South Carolina, going 5-0 and improving to 16-2 on the season.

LSU beat New Orleans, Texas-Corpus Christi and South Carolina on Sunday and then Houston Baptist and Southern Miss on Sunday.

“When we started the season, we knew we had a good team,” LSU head coach Russell Brock said. “As we have a pretty good sample size through the first few weeks, it’s clear that we are trending in the right direction.”

LSU is off next weekend before it travels to Southern California for a Saturday double-header at UCLA and a Sunday double-header at USC. Florida State will have double-headers against both USC and UCLA as well on opposite days as LSU. The four teams mentioned above have been inside the top-four the entire season up to today.

“To have two weeks to really get after it and to focus on some things we can be better at before we have a really big test is a huge opportunity,” said Brock. “We don’t get this opportunity very often. We’re looking forward to the chance to build on what we saw today (Sunday).”

LSU’s Court 1 team of Taryn Kloth and Kristen Nuss remained unbeaten on the season. They are now 18-0 with 17 wins in straight sets.
