A former Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns softball player has been nominated for a pretty special NCAA award.

Lexie Comeaux, who played catcher and outfield for Louisiana for four seasons, from 2016-2019, has been nominated for the 2019 NCAA Woman of the Year Award, which recognizes graduating female student-athletes who have distinguished themselves in academics, athletics, service, and leadership throughout their collegiate careers.

A native of Tomball, Texas, Comeaux was great, both on the field, and in the classroom, during her time at UL.

A two-time All-Sun Belt Conference selection (2017, 2019), Comeaux hit .321 in her senior season in 2019, to go along with 8 home runs and 43 runs batted in, while also earning Academic Honor Roll status from the conference three times (2015, 2018, 2019).

Nine finalists will be determined in September, with the 2019 NCAA Woman of the Year being named at the annual award ceremony Indianapolis, Indiana on October 20.

Congratulations to Lexie!
