All 10 Sun Belt softball coaches voted Louisiana's Ragin' Cajun softball team as the pick to win the Sun Belt Conference in 2017.

Being a unanimous preseason favorite isn't new for Louisiana, but it also isn't always a guarantee.

After winning their 14th conference title in 16 years of the Sun Belt, the Ragin' Cajuns return a roster with two All-Americans in pitcher Alex Stewart and outfielder Aleah Craighton.

Louisiana's season begins February 17th with a 3:00 first pitch against DePaul in the 31st annual Louisiana Classics at Lamson Park.
