Jill Robertson Talks UL Softball & Her Career – AUDIO
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 infielder/outfielder Jill Robertson was a guest on “Thinking Out Loud” on Thursday.
Robertson, a product of Acadiana High School, played for the Cajuns from 2001-2005, and was a member of the 2003 Women’s College World Series team.
A four-year starter, Robertson finished her career with 227 hits, which ranks her in the top ten, all-time.
In 2005, in her senior campaign, Robertson was named an All-Sun Belt Conference performer, after hitting a .366, with 5 home runs, 25 runs batted in, and 11 stolen bases.
And that was after missing the entire 2004 season, with a knee injury.
In 2003, on that Women’s College World Series team, Robertson finished third on the team with 11 homers.
A terrific athlete, Robertson played both the infield and the outfield equally well, and had a good arm to go along with her glove.
Part of Stefni Lotief's first team in 2001, Robertson helped pavet he way for the next generation of great UL softball players.
Robertson joined us to talk about her, career, share some postseason memories, and give her thoughts on this year’s team.
