After another stellar season which ended at the Women's College World Series, the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns softball team has been ranked #9 in the preseason poll of the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.

In a season that many thought would be a rebuilding one, the Cajuns streaked to a 49-10-1 record which earned them a #6 national seed and the host spot in the NCAA Regionals and Super Regionals.

The bulk of that squad returns for Coach Michael Lotief this season, including pitchers Christina Hamilton and Jordan Wallace, along with every day players Lexie Elkins, Hayley Hayden, Samantha Walsh and Shellie Landry, among others.
