Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun softball team #6-overall national seed, will take on the 11th-seeded Arizona Wildcats in a best-of-three game Super Regional series this weekend at Lamson Park.

To get you ready for the very first Super Regional Regional ever played in Lafayette, La., we reached out to some former UL greats, to not only preview the big series, but also take a look back at some special postseason memories.

Former UL outfielder Vallie Gaspard was a guest on “Thinking Out Loud” on Tuesday.

Gaspard, a product of North Vermilion High School, played for the Cajuns from 2007-2010. She played in two Super Regional series’ (2008 & 2010), and was a member of the 2008 Women’s College World Series team.

A 2010 first team All-Sun Belt Conference selection, hitting a .422, with 18 stolen bases, Gaspard was a four-year starter.

In 2008, on that Women’s College World Series team, Gaspard finished second on the team, hitting a .404.

Not bad, especially for somebody that had more of an interest in basketball than softball in her early high school days.

Gaspard was an exciting player, one whose speed and defense could change the complexion of a game.

Because of her high level of play, and her local ties, Gaspard was, and always will be, a favorite among the Cajun faithful.

Gaspard joined us to talk about her, career, share some postseason memories, and give her thoughts on this year’s team.
