The 2020 Ragin’ Cajuns opened team practice for the fall season on Friday, Sept. 20.
Louisiana enters its third season under the guidance of head coach Gerry Glasco. The list of returners is headlined by NFCA All-American pitcher and Sun Belt Pitcher of the Year Summer Ellyson, Sun Belt Player of the Year Alissa Dalton and Sun Belt Newcomer of the Year Sarah Hudek.
The newcomers are highlighted by four Division I transfers (Megan Kleist and Mia Camuso of Oregon as well as Missouri tandem Callie Martin and Geana Torres) and the first signees of the Glasco era.
Some recent comments from coach Glasco about this year’s team and practice.
“It is an absolute thrill to be back on the field,” Glasco remarked. “We look forward to seeing how all the new and old pieces fit together as a team. “Certainly, there is an enormous amount of talent assembled,” Glasco added. “Now we must identify the individuals who can blend and play together.” “Our expectations are extremely higher this season,” Glasco stated. “We must use this critical fall practice season effectively and efficiently in order to be ready to play well as a team early in the spring season. “Our main focus this fall will be to find our best team – the group of 10-13 players – that will give us our best shot to advance to the WCWS in June 2020.”
