LSU was originally one of the first teams to take up the sport of lacrosse in Louisiana, joining the SWLA in 1974. The Tigers competed in the SWLA's College Division until the early 1990's, when the bottom fell out of the program under the weight of an unfavorable travel schedule. Finally, the LSU program has arisen again. This time, the school will join the more-appropriate GCLA, first as an At-Large member and then as a member of the Eastern Conference in 2000.
