LSU softball earns No. 8 seed in SEC tournament, will open vs. Alabama

The SEC softball regular season came to an end on Sunday.

It was a disappointing Senior Day for the LSU Tigers, which lost their regular season finale against Liberty 3-1. Still, they took the overall weekend series, ending a streak of four straight series losses.

As a result of that skid down the stretch, coach Beth Torina’s team earned the No. 8 seed at the SEC tournament, which begins on Tuesday in Auburn, Alabama, and will run through Saturday.

LSU will begin its run on Wednesday in the first game of the day at 10 a.m. CT, facing off against No. 9 Alabama. The two teams didn’t face during the regular season.

LSU finished the regular season with a 38-14 record but a 12-12 mark in conference play. A host spot through the super regional round is still a possibility, but the Tigers could help their case this week.
