The LSU Lady Tigers softball team represents Louisiana State University in NCAA Division I college softball. The team participates in the Southeastern Conference. They are currently coached by head coach Yvette Girouard and assistant coaches James DeFeo and Megan Smith. They play home games in Tiger Park. LSU has won five Southeastern Conference championships and have finished third at the Women's College World Series twice.



LSU softball had its beginnings in 1979 with a team coached by Carol Smith. However, after only three seasons, LSU decided to disband its softball program. In 1997 the Southeastern Conference decided to begin sponsoring softball, partly to help member institutions to comply with Title IX. LSU softball was reborn and quickly became one of the best teams not only in the conference, but in the nation. Since 1997, LSU has won 5 regular season SEC championships and 5 SEC tournament championships, more than any other school in the conference. LSU has also appeared in two Women's College World Series and 10 NCAA tournaments.
