UL Softball Defeats Stanford, 6-2, Wins Regional

Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun softball team defeated the Stanford Cardinal, 6-2, at Lamson Park on Sunday, to win the Lafayette, La. NCAA Softball Regional, and send them to Super Regional play.

Louisiana struck early, getting back-to-back-to-back singles from Katie Smith, Nerissa Myers, and Christi Orgeron, with Myers scoring on Orgeron’s hit, before Myers scored on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Brianna Cherry, making it 2-0.

UL then used the long ball to extend their lead, as Orgeron blasted a solo home run in the third inning, before Sarah Draheim smashed a two-run bomb in the fifth inning, making the score 5-0.

The Cardinal put up two runs in the sixth inning, before the Cajuns added an insurance run in the sixth, making the final score 6-2.

Smith paced Louisiana at the plate, going 3-for-4, to go along with the homers by Orgeron and Draheim.

Ashley Briganc (23-3) picked-up the win for the Cajuns, with Jordan Wallace recording the save, while Teagan Gerhart (32-13) suffered the loss for Stanford.

With the win, Louisiana improves to 52-4 on the year, while the loss ends Stanford’s season with a record of 40-19.

The regional win is the third for the Cajuns in the last five years, and their seventh in school history.

UL moves on to Super Regional play for the third time in school history, where they will take on either Arizona St. or Syracuse.
