It may have rained in Tiger Stadium on Saturday night, but the weather couldn't wash out the Tigers -- or LSU Houston!

In recognition of the $100,000 donation to the Tiger Athletic Foundation, LSU Houston was invited to come on the field of Tiger Stadium for a special presentation prior to the LSU vs. Western Kentucky game on Oct. 24. Several people and organizations were recognized as part of the Foundation of Champions presentation for donations to TAF.

In 2014, LSU Houston raised more than $105,000 to give back to LSU in the form of donations and scholarships. Our chapter established a $100,000 Champions Endowment Scholarship to the Tiger Athletic Foundation for LSU’s Swimming & Diving Team. Until 2014, the LSU Swimming & Diving team was the only sport at LSU without a fully funded Champion's Endowed Scholarship.

Despite the rain, the Tigers prevailed with a 48-20 win over WKU and moved to 7-0 on the season, and LSU Houston had a great time in Baton Rouge.

Thank you to all of our members, sponsors and supporters who helped make this happen!

Forever LSU!
