UL Softball Still Projected As #2 Seed For Regionals
Louisiana's Ragin' Cajun softball team is still being projected as a #2-seed for the upcoming 2018 NCAA Regionals.
Louisiana, who is currently 31-12, overall, is being projected as the #2-seed in the Tuscaloosa, Alabama Regional by College Sports Madness.
Last week, the site projected UL as a #2-seed in the Gainesville, Florida Regional.
Okay, officially, there are no 2-4 seeds in the NCAA Regionals. The NCAA only recognizes the top seed. But we can all easily figure it out.
The Cajuns, who are currently in second place in the Sun Belt Conference standings, have two weekends of play remaining in the regular season, before playing host to the rest of the league for the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, May 9-12.
Unless something strange happens, Louisiana will be making their 20th-consecutive NCAA Regional appearance, including their 28th in the last 29 years.
The only year since 1990 in which Louisiana failed to appear in a regional was 1998.
If the Cajuns are indeed a #2-seed, it would mark the second-consecutive year that would be the case, after hosting three-straight years, in which they were the top seed, from 2014-2016.
Louisiana has had a lot of success in postseason play, advancing to Super Regional play for 5-straight years, prior to last season.
These are projections, and nothing more, but the Cajuns are projected as the second-seed in the Tuscaloosa Regional, along with the top-seeded Alabama Crimson Tide, Notre Dame, and UMass.
Of note, LSU is projected to host this week, UCLA is projected as the top-overall National Seed, and Texas St. is the only other Sun Belt Conference school, besides UL, projected in the field.

The Cajuns will travel to Arlington, Texas this weekend, to take on UTA in a three-game league series.
