Top UL Softball Moments Of 2018: #9—Hudek Transfers To UL
It's time for a look back at another one of the top ten Louisiana Ragin' Cajun softball moments from 2018.
The 2018 college softball season was another special one for Louisiana.
The Cajuns were ranked in the top 25 all season, qualified for postseason play for the 19th-consecutive year, and finished the season with a sparkling 41-16 record.
Over the next few days, I'll look at ten of the UL softball moments of the 2018 season.
In this segment, Louisiana adds a talented piece of the puzzle, with the transfer addition of Sarah Hudek, who joined UL in late November.
Hudek became the second former Texas A&M starter to transfer to UL since the end of last season, joining Louisiana outfielder Keeli Milligan, who joined the program over the summer.
A left-handed hitter, Hudek has two years of college softball eligibility remaining, despite actually playing at the collegiate level for the past three years.
The daughter of former Houston Astros pitcher John Hudek, Hudek actually began her collegiate athletic career as a college baseball pitcher, at Bossier Parish Community College, where she pitched 20 innings against males, striking out 12 batters.
In 2017, the first year she ever played softball, Hudek hit a .291, to go along with four home runs and 34 runs batted in.
Last season with the Aggies, Hudek hit a .363 with 8 homers and 33 RBI's, earning NFCA All-South Region Third Team honors.
The fact that Hudek hit a .363 last season, playing in the SEC, in only her second year of playing the game, gives you an indication of how talented she is, and how bright her future is.
The Cajuns added a good one.
