Brignac, Orgeron win weekly Sun Belt awards
Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun softball team swept the Sun Belt awards for the
third time this season as Christi Orgeron and Ashley Brignac have been named Sun Belt Player and Pitcher of the week.
Orgeron, a native of New Orleans, drove in 11 runs this past week. Orgeron has an NCAA-best 71 RBI on the year and is just nine short of the all time Cajuns single season record. She hit her 18th home run of the season in a Saturday sweep of Middle Tennessee.
Brignac won four games this past week and threw 16 shutout innings. The River Ridge native now has 20.2 consecutive shutout innings. Brignac now has 22 wins on the year, best in the Sun Belt.
The Cajuns entertain Nicholls State in a doubleheader tomorrow before travelling to face Florida Atlantic in a three game SBC series this weeekend.
