UL Softball’s Brittany Holland Suffers Second ACL Tear
Awful news for a Louisiana Ragin' Cajun softball player.
Sophomore second baseman Brittany Holland, who was recovering from a torn ACL that she suffered during opening weekend last season, unfortunately suffered another torn ACL, this one in opposite knee, during practice on Friday.
In only three games last season, Holland accumulated 4 hits in 7 at-bats, while scoring twice, and driving in three runs.
A native of Gilbert, Arizona, Holland, who played one season at Central Arizona College, was named an NJCAA first team All-American following the 2017 season, after hitting a .471, to go along with 15 home runs and 81 runs batted in.
Holland's father, Brad, who is currently a scout in the Philadelphia Phillies organization, played college baseball at McNeese St. under Tony Robichaux, who is now the head baseball coach at UL.
This is an unfortunate setback for someone who worked so hard to get healthy to resume her playing career, and now has to go through the rehab process once again.
Sometimes, life just isn't fair.
Get well soon Brittany; our thoughts and prayers are with you!
