The LSU soccer team has been picked to place 2nd in the Southeastern Conference Western Division (SEC) in the pre-season poll by the coaches in the SEC as reported by The Advocate on Wednesday, July 24, 2013.
Texas A&M received the most first place votes and total votes to win the top spot in the poll.
Florida, the defending SEC champions, received six first place votes, but not enough overall votes to put them in the second place spot. LSU received enough overall votes to land the number two spot, but only had one vote for first place.
The soccer program continues to grow at LSU and has also proven to be a force on the field, winning five SEC championships in the past. The Tigers last brought home the SEC championship in 2011.
The LSU soccer team will begin pre-season training on August 7, 2013. The first game will be an exhibition game between in-state rival Nicholls State on August 16, 2013, followed by the season opener on August 23, 2013 against Louisiana Tech at 7:00 p.m. at LSU in Baton Rouge, La.
