Karli Hubbard 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 outfielder Karli Hubbard was a guest on “Thinking Out Loud” on Wednesday.
Hubbard, a product of Comeaux High School, played for the Cajuns from 2006-2009, and was a member of the 2008 Women’s College World Series team.
A four-year starter, Hubbard finished her career with 267 hits, which ranks her in the top ten, all-time.
In 2009, in her senior campaign, Hubbard was named to Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year, after hitting a .426, with 22 stolen bases.
In 2008, on that Women’s College World Series team, Hubbard finished third on the team, hitting a .389.
A terrific defensive player, Hubbard made a diving, game-saving catch, for the final out of the first game of the 2008 Super Regional against Houston.
Hubbard was a fun player to watch. She could soft slap, or power slap, run the bases, and play defense.
She was a game-changer in every sense of the word, and a player that is fondly remember by Cajun softball fans.
Hubbard joined us to talk about her, career, share some postseason memories, and give her thoughts on this year’s team.
