UL Softball In Top Ten In Attendance Again This Week
As is normally the case, the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns are drawing extremely well for their respective home games at Yvette Girouard at Lamson Park.
Louisiana currently ranks 8th in the nation in the latest college softball attendance figures.
Heading into the week, UL was 33-4 on the season, including a 19-1 home record (excluding Wednesday night's home game against Southeastern Louisiana), having drawn 25,642 fans.
The Cajuns return home on April 18, playing host to Georgia St. in the opening game of a three-game, weekend, Sun Belt Conference series.
Alabama, who 45,315 fans, through 19 home games, ranks number one in the country, followed by Auburn, who has drawn 45,241 through only 24 home games.
Arizona ranks third on the list, having drawn 42,468 through 22 games, with Texas A&M checking in fourth, after drawing 40,527 through 30 home games.
LSU ranks 5th on the list, having drawn 37,989 fans through 26 home dates
In terms of average attendance, Louisiana ranks 10th, averaging 1,350 fans a game, one of only 16 schools in the nation that are averaging more than 1,000 fans.
And actually, Louisiana likely ranks even better in attendance, as they're averaging over 1,700 fans per home contest. The issue is that it seems as though the Cajuns, in the tournaments they played in, in which they played two home games in one day; were credited for one attendance figure for one game, but were given zero attendance for the other, declining their average attendance numbers.
It's a glitch in the system; one that the NCAA will, hopefully, work out in the future.
As for now; these are the official stats.
Alabama ranks at the top in average attendance, averaging 2,385 fans per home contest.
Ranking high in attendance is nothing new, as the Cajuns typically draw among the best programs in the nation, ranking in the top ten in attendance the last two years.
Yvette Girouard at Lamson Park is always a special place for UL softball!
