BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva said the school will add women's sand volleyball to its sports lineup for the fall of 2014.
The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/15HMk2j ) it's the first time LSU has added a sport since softball was revived in 1997 after a 16-year hiatus.
Sand volleyball will give LSU 19 varsity sports.
Alleva made the announcement Monday. He said LSU will convert W.T. "Dub" Robinson Tennis Stadium into a facility for the new sport.
