Acadiana Area Native Abby Trahan Off To Solid Start At New School
A former local softball standout is off to a good start at her new college softball home.
Pitcher Abby Trahan, who pitched the last two seasons for the St. Francis College Red Flash, is off to an unbeaten start with the Southern Miss Golden Eagles, after transferring over the summer.
Over the weekend, Trahan, a product of Kaplan High School, helped Southern Miss get off to a perfect 5-0 start, with two wins of her own in the Black & Gold Invitational.
Over 12 innings pitched against Houston Baptist and Tennessee Tech, Trahan limited the opposition to only two earned runs, while striking out 9 batters.
So far on the young 2019 season, Trahan is 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA.
Trahan helped Kaplan to a state title in softball in 2016 as a senior, going 23-5 with a 0.73 ERA, while tossing six no-hitters. So also batted a .482, to go along with six home runs and 28 runs batted in.
For her efforts, Trahan was named a Small School All-American by CBS/MaxPreps.com, as well as the Louisiana AAA Player of the Year and First Team All-State.
Following high school, Trahan headed up north, to St. Francis College, which is located in New York City.
As a freshman in 2017, Trahan was named the Northeast Conference Rookie of the Year, after compiling an overall record of 15-4, to go along with three saves and a 2.45 ERA.
Last season, as a sophomore, Trahan was named the Northeast Conference Pitcher of the Year, after going 28-12 with a 2.55 ERA.
A right-hander, Trahan helped lead the Red Flash to NCAA Regional play, where she limited Arizona to just one run on tow hits over six innings of work.
We wish Abby continued success.
