Lady Lions to feature returning seniors

The Lady Lions softball team is returning this semester following an excellent previous season where they finished with a record of 19-29-0. Their final game had been against Baton Rouge Community College, where they won with a score of 11-0, a staggering victory.

Returning this season will be junior Katie Lacour, senior third baseman Megan Moore and sophomore designated player Amber Sather, all o selected for the All Southland Conference Team in 2014.

Lacour is originally from Port St. Joe, Florida and stood out among the rest, being named as the first selection, while her teammates were given honorable mentions. By Southeastern’s standards, she maintains the highest batting average with a .397, and she made an outstanding finish in the season with an 11 game hitting streak.

Moore is from Elgin, Texas and had two career highs. She had made nine homeruns and batted 38 runs in last season, leading the Lady Lions. 

Sather is a native of Kennedale, Texas. She added six homeruns to her record as well as 35 walks and was hit by a single season school record tying 13 pitches.

This season’s line-up is relatively young with seven freshmen, seven sophomores, six juniors and five seniors making up the team. 

Under the tutelage of head coach Pete Langlois, who has the best winning record in school history, and assistant coaches Arica Rodriguez and Kendra Cullum, the team has high chances of performing well. Rodriguez has been the team’s hitting and infielders’ coach for four seasons, while Cullum is the recruiting coordinator and works with the outfielders.

To open their 2015 season, the Lady Lions will host the Lion classic. The tournament’s opening game will be Southeastern taking on Alcorn State on Feb. 6 at 5:00 p.m.
