Pitcher Christina Hamilton, who flashed periods of brilliance, during her freshman season for Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun softball team, has a torn anterior cruciate ligament, in her right knee, that will require surgery.

The injury took place on Saturday, May 21, when the Cajuns were playing the Texas St. Bobcats, in the NCAA Austin, Texas Regional. Hamilton fielded a high-chopper, and was planting her right leg to thrown home when it buckled.

Hamilton had an MRI, on Thursday, which confirmed the ACL tear.

Hamilton went 11-2, with a 1.72 era in her freshman season. The Rosepine High School product, and Leesville native, compiled 98 strikeouts in 83.2 innings, and threw five shutouts.

Hamilton will have surgery in a couple of weeks, with rehab expected to last around six months. She’ll undoubtedly miss the fall, but should be cleared, and ready to go, when the Cajuns begin practicing in January for the 2012 campaign. 

The Cajuns have three returning pitchers, including Sun Belt Conference Pitcher of the Year Ashely Brignac, along with sophomores-to-be Shelbee Rodgers, and Allie Chenault, as well as Paige Cavallin, who will be a junior next year.

UL has also signed two talented pitchers who may contribute as freshman, in Maggie Ham, from George West, Texas, and Jordan Wallace, from Weatherford, Texas.
