This weekend, the LSU Gymnastics team won its first National Championship beating out California, Utah, and Florida with a team score of 198.2250. The LSU win stopped Oklahoma who was seeking a three-peat spending a majority of the season as the Nation's top team. Haleigh Bryant cemented her legacy as one of the best gymnasts in college history winning the All-Around Championship while helping the team win it's first ever title.

The win gives LSU National Championships in Gymnastics, Football, Baseball, Track and Field, Dance, and Women's Basketball all within the last five years. Tons of credit for this dominant stretch belongs to LSU Athletic Director Scott Woodward. Since being hired in 2019, Woodward has hired Kim Mulkey and Jay Johnson both of whom have brought home National Championships and Brian Kelley who will have plenty of opportunities to win in the next few years.

The message to boosters, coaches, students, athletes, and others has become clear, being a part of what the LSU Tigers are building will result in National Championships. In the ever-changing NIL and Transfer Portal window this is vital as this will only help the Tigers in growing the Bayou Traditions NIL collective.

LSU athletics is truly on an impressive run that will only continue to get more promising. The football program currently holds the second-ranked recruiting class, the basketball team is entering the third year of Matt McMahon with tons of promise, and the softball team is currently ranked 7th in the Country.

LSU Athletics: Best of the Best

The LSU Athletic teams continue to prove that the school is one of the best in the country at any sport. While most schools are competitive at one or two sports, LSU is proving to be dominant at every sport competing for the National Championship nearly every year. It's hard to field teams capable of winning at the College level yet, LSU continues to field National Championship caliber teams.
