LSU passes on hard courts in favor of beach training

Instead of practicing on the traditional hard court to prepare for its spring tournaments, LSU's volleyball team has been training on a more comfortable and therapeutic surface - the beach.

The Tigers practice the entire fall season on the hardwood of the auxiliary gym of the PMAC, which is less forgiving and more bruising on the lower body compared to the softness of the sand, so they use the spring as a way to get out of the gym and onto the sand.

The beach training seems to be working so far, as the Tigers took six of the eight sets they played in the Rice Spring Tournament during the weekend.
