BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) -

Southeastern Louisiana's 2016 season came to a bitter end after getting handled 15-0 by Rice in the Baton Rouge regional. The Lions finished the season with a 40-21 record.

SLU did register one win in the regional beating Utah Valley, but fell to Rice twice in Baton Rouge.

"I remember sitting at this podium two years ago when we got knocked out, and said we were going to take this program to another level, and we did," said SLU Coach Matt Riser. "That's the same thing we're at now. Obviously the back-to-back 40-win seasons, first at-large bid our program has ever had kind of broke the ice. We're not content with this, this is not a good feeling. At the end of the day there's going to be one team happy at the end of the year dog-piling, and I want to be that team. To sit here, and look at the wall, all I see is Omaha. That's a drive that's going to keep us going."

Star hitter Jameson Fisher ended the season as one of the top hitters in the country, and has no regrets on how the season turned out.

"It's awesome to see the way we're building things, and it'll be exciting 20-30 years down the road to look back and see what continued after we left. See what they continue to do after we left, and what we started," said Jameson Fisher.

    As rainfall made its way across a majority of Louisiana Monday morning, not even Mother Nature could stop the Offensive/Defensive Line Camp from continuing at Nicholls State University. More than 100 high school students packed the inside of the David R. Stopher gymnasium for day three of the lineman camp.
