LSU has grown tremendously season after season under the leadership of head coach D-D Breaux and the new tutelage of former Georgia head coach Jay Clark. Led by Breaux, LSU has seen increasing accomplishments that include 10 NCAA Championships appearances in the last 11 seasons, five Super Six finals since 2008 and nine individual national titles since 2002. Within the conference, the Tigers have won only one SEC title back in 1981 but have been one of the contenders for the title over the last few years. After a disappointing 2015 season where the team failed to qualify to the Super Six despite being considered one of the favorites to win it all, the Tigers rebounded extremely well in 2016. They finished as the national runners-up, the best finish in school history, and placed third at the SEC Championship, compiled a 31-6 overall record, had a 6-1 regular season record against SEC opponents and were unbeaten at home for the third year in a row. Additionally, LSU broke its home attendance record for the fourth straight season with an average of 9,906 fans. Ashleigh Gnat, entering her final season as a Tiger in 2017, also etched her name permanently in the record books by setting the LSU single-season record with six perfect scores, including school record four on floor. She also added two perfect 10s on vault. Former national champions for the Tigers include Rheagan Courville, Susan Jackson, Ashleigh Clare-Kearney, April Burkholder, Nicki Arnstad and Jeanie Beadle.
