FROM COACH LYON

“We are looking forward to our first road test of the season. McNeese is a great team. They return one of the best hitters in the country in Erica Piancastelli and have LSU transfer Baylee Corbello in the circle this year surrounded by a bunch of great role players. We are going to be without two starters due to injury. As always, it will be a great opportunity for our younger kids to step up and make an impact.”
