Beth Torina and her Lady Tigers Softball squad went into the Tiger Classic with a record of (8-0) and after five games played between Thursday and Saturday and still have a zero in the loss column. The offensive firepower trend continued as they scored 37 runs over five games.

They would square off with the Broncos again on Friday evening with LSU jumping on them early with Briggs and Coffey plating two runs off of a Raeleen Gutierrez single. Then in the 2nd inning they scored 3 more runs with Pleasants driving in 2 runs and Gutierrez earned another RBI. They headed to the 4th with a (5-0) lead and were on their way to what seemed might be a mercy rule until McAnally homered scoring 2 runs. In the bottom of the 4th Ali Newland notched an RBI but McAnally would homer again in the 5th to plate 3 and make it (5-6). Raelin Chaffin would take the circle for the Tigers after that and she only allowed 1 hit in 3 innings with 3 strikeouts. In the 5th Pleasants and Newland would both add RBIs and LSU would go on to win (8-5) giving Emma Strood her 2nd win with a (2-0) record and Raelin Chaffin would pick up her 1st save of the year.

In Game 2 against Houston, LSU fans was treated to the Ali Newland Show with a cameo on the Sports Center Top 10. Ali would go 2 for 3 with two doubles with 2 RBIs and 1 run scored.

Newland shared the stage with Raelin Chaffin as she threw her best game of the year with a complete game 7.0 inning performance where she struck out 5 and only allowed 2 hits improving to (4-0) on the season as the Tigers won the game (5-0).
