Brignac, Orgeron Honored at Sun Belt Meetings
The honors keep pouring in for Ashley Brignac and Christi Orgeron.
The two Ragin’ Cajuns softball players received two of the highest honors that can be bestowed by the Sun Belt Conference at the spring meetings in Destin, Florida.
Brignac received a $4,500 award toward her further education as she was named the Female Postgraduate Scholarship Recipient.
Orgeron was named by the league
as Female Student-Athlete of the Year.
They were two of six award recipients announced by the league, joining North Texas football player Nick Summerfield (Male Postgraduate scholarship), Arkansas State football player Ryan Aplin (Male Student-Athlete of the Year), Arkansas State Volleyball Player Kelsie Hodges (Female Sporting Behavior Award) and Florida Atlantic Cross Country runner Ryan Davis (Male Sporting Behavior Award).
Brignac and Orgeron aren’t finished with their playing careers, however, as they’ll lead Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns softball team into the NCAA Super-Regionals Thursday and Friday in Tempe, Arizona.
The #14 seeded Cajuns will meet #3 Arizona State in a best of three series with the winner headed to Oklahoma City for the NCAA Women’s College World Series
