Arizona Officially Announces Additions Of UL Softball Transfers
The Arizona Wildcats have officially announced the additions of two former Louisiana Ragin' Cajun softball players.
A 2017 NFCA First Team All-American, following NFCA Second Team All-American honors in 2016, Craighton was also a first team All-Sun Belt Conference and All-Louisiana selection in both years.
A native of Prairieville, Louisiana, Craighton hit a .345 last season, to go along with 18 home runs and 53 runs batted in, after hitting a .378 with 18 homers and 58 RBI's in 2016.
A three-year starter for Louisiana, Craighton will be eligible to play for the Wildcats in 2018, and have one year of eligibility remaining.
A native of Alvin, Texas, Denham went 15-2 last season, to go along with a 2.27 ERA.
Those stats were good enough to earn the right-hander first team All-Sun Belt, Sun Belt Conference Freshman of the Year, and LSWA Freshman of the Year honors, while also being tabbed an NFCA Division I Top 23 Finalist.
In 129 innings a season ago, Denham appeared in 28 games, including 20 as a starter, logging 129.2 innings, allowing 99 hits, 42 earned runs, and 42 walks, while striking out 80 batters.
Denham, who will be eligible to play for the Wildcats in the spring, will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.
