Louisiana Ragin' Cajun softball season begins in 8 days, and the anticipation from the fanbase is palpable.

For fans who want to meet the nationally ranked team, you'll have an opportunity this Saturday.

Three Ragin' Cajun softballers were named to the All-Sun Belt preseason team today in junior pitcher Kandra Lamb, sophomore catcher Sophie Piskos, and junior outfielder Raina O'Neal.

For a program that has reached the NCAA Tournament every season of the 21st century, preseason accolades are familiar, but they know it's what comes next that counts.

The Ragin' Cajuns have 7 games on their schedule against preseason top 25 squads.

Louisiana is currently scheduled to play Alabama twice, LSU twice, and Texas three times.

Alabama is 3rd, Texas is 11th, and LSU is 16th in Softball America's preseason rankings.

First pitch for the 2022 Louisiana softball season is Friday, February 11th against UAB at Yvette Girouard Field at Lamson Park.
