Tigers and Cajuns to meet in the Super Regionals

June 1, 2015
It's LSU and UL Lafayette in a super regional series this weekend at Alex Box Stadium.

Both teams advanced out of their respective regionals, the Tigers defeated UNC-Wilmington 2-0, while the Cajuns defeated Rice 5-2. LSU CF and former St. Thomas More star Andrew Stevenson grew up in Acadiana and he's excited for what will be an electric atmosphere.

"My freshman year, I was able to be part of the team that played in a super regional," Stevenson said. "The atmosphere is great, the crowds are awesome, they're loud, everybody getting all fired up, I'm excited for this week to come." 
UL Lafayette won two games in the Houston Regional by scoring multiple runs in the ninth inning to win. The voice of Ragin Cajuns, Jay Walker, says this team has found ways to get it done.
"They just don't have any quit in them," Walker said.
Walker says the Cajuns will bring a young team to Baton Rouge, their top three starters are freshmen and so is their closer. He says the club understands they go in as underdogs.
"You don't have to have the best team, you just gotta be the best over a three-day period," Walker said. "I think the Cajuns know what they are up against, and at the same time they're not going to be intimidated, they're not going to be afraid, they're going to go out and play ball." 
Per the NCAA regulations, the visiting visiting team at each Super Regional is only guaranteed 600 tickets. RCAF donors will receive first priority to purchase tickets.

The Super Regional Winner advances to the College World Series.
