Orgeron Wins Award
For the fifth time in seven weeks, a Ragin’ Cajun has been chosen as the LSWA Hitter of the Week. This week the honor goes to junior outfielder Christi Orgeron.
Orgeron hit .800 (8-for-10) last weekend in a three-game sweep of Sun Belt opponent Troy. The junior right fielder was a single short of the cycle on Sunday, with just three official at-bats in a six-inning UL victory.
She posted seven RBI on the weekend which moves her season total to 55. In comparison, Orgeron led the Sun Belt at the season’s end last year with 56 runs batted in. Her 2011 RBI total gives Orgeron 1.72 RBI per game this season, the best mark in the nation.
The award is the second of the season for Orgeron from the LSWA to go along with one Sun Belt Player of the Week honor.
