    Hello Ragin Cajun softball fans. This is (J) Just (M) My (V) View of the 2022 Cajuns softball team from what I have seen at fall ball practices, fall ball intersquad games, etc. I did get a little input from a few close friends of mine with ties to the program.

    Catcher:
    Sophie Piskos-Soph...She hit .333 in 57 at bats last year. Look for her to lead the team in homeruns and be the vocal leader of this team. A very high energy kid who has added some serious pop to her bat.

    Sophie is the only real catcher on the roster and that is a major concern of mine if we have a covid or injury issue. She will be backed up by Mayeux and Kotzelnick.

    Pitchers:
    Kandra Lamb-Jr...Was 17-5 with a 2.02 era last year. She looked very good this fall and should enter the season as the veteran ace of the staff.

    Sam Landry-Fr...Sam was the #4 overall recruit in the nation out of high school. Sam is the real deal and could push Lamb for ace status. She throws very hard and with control.

    Megan Schorman-Jr...A transfer from Kentucky who also throws hard and has control. She will be a huge part of this pitching staff. Was 7-1 with a 1.30 era before covid shut the 2020 season down.

    Vanessa Foreman-Jr...Probably the most improved pitcher on the staff. She has really taken off under Coach Robe. She will be a major weapon out of the bullpen from 1 to 9 batters.

    Taylor Snow-Fr...She redshirted last year and is still working hard to adjust to the D1 game.

    Tyler Oubre-Fr...Threw well at Destrehan high until her arm (non pitching) was broken on a line drive comebacker. I could see her redshirting.

    The pitching staff will be a huge strength as we have four pitchers that I would feel comfortable starting along with a big time lefty in Foreman who will chew hitters up. With Lamb and Schorman we can afford to groom Landry at Coach Glasco pace. I am not worried about the pitching staff.

    Outfield:
    Raina O'Neal-Jr...She was hitting .421 before going down with an season ending injury. Look for Raina to be Raina. She will be a steady all around player and leader. She will start in CF.

    Maddie Hayden-Fr...She will be as good as Haley was. Enough said. She has speed to kill and will probably start in LF, but could play anywhere in the OF or IF. I would like to see if she can play catcher?

    McKenzie Wittenberg-Fr...A kid out of Florida who may redshirt but also could be used as an pinch runner. Super fast and can play OF or 2nd if needed.

    Frankie Izard-Jr...Frankie was 14-15 in steals and hit .474 in a part time roll last season along with sporting a .630 on base avg. before going down for the season. She sat all fallball to recover. If she gets hot she could earn a starting OF spot.

    Kramer Eschete-Fr...She was the top hitter in the fall. If she carrys this over to the spring she could end up starting in RF. The most surprising kid of the fall.

    Kayla Falterman-Fr...She is to good not to play this season. Will be used as a pinch runner, late defensive replacement and even as a bunter off the bench.

    Samantha Graeter-Fr...Had a good fall and needs that to carry over to the spring and she will then get some playing time.

    Jenna Keen-Sr...One of two seniors on the roster. Jenna needs to get consistent and she will play alot. She was 29-32 in steals last year. She could steal 50 bases if she can get her on base average up.

    The Cajuns have a ton of options and depth in the outfield. The outfielders are very fast and will be very good in the field.

    Infield:
    Ari Quionenes-Jr...A Washington transfer who could start at 2nd. Had a very good fall and it will be interesting to see if she starts. Most of the players see her as a player in the starting lineup.

    Taylor Roman-Fr...Coming off a major knee injury and still not 100%. If healthy she will be a huge power present in the lineup. Look for Taylor to be at 1st and DP.

    Jourdyn Campbell-Soph...A Texas A&M transfer. She has 3rd base locked down. She will supply alot of power and hit for a high average. Also a very hard worker.

    Laney Credeur-Fr...Probably will redshirt as she adjusts to the D1 game. Has a bright future as a Cajun.

    Melissa Mayeux-Sr...One of two seniors on the roster. If she hits, she will start somewhere. She can play anywhere but pitcher. She was the allstar MVP of the Florida summer league. Mayeux is the hardest worker on the team.

    Stormy Kotzelnick-Fr...Another Washington transfer. She is a very strong athlete who can play anywhere. In the mold of Mayeux if she hits, she will start. Very excited to have her for 4 seasons.

    Alexa Langeliers-Fr...Super athlete who looked strong in the fall. Her brother was the 9th overall pick in the 2019 mlb draft. She will have a huge career as a Cajun. A defensive stud!

    The Cajuns have a ton of options and depth in the infield also. The infielders are very fast and will be very good in the field like the outfielders.

    Utility:
    Karly Heath-Jr...Karly has been a huge surprise as a pitcher this fall and will be up to 71mph. Her improvements gives the Cajuns 4 strong starting pitchers. Karly also lead the team in homeruns last year with 8. I think Karly will start in RF when she isn't pitching at least to start the season.

    *This will be a fun team to watch and might be the fastest team overall team ever at UL.

    *Coach Glasco has a ton of options and can go with a speed, power or defensive lineup.

    *Pitching will keep us in every game. Coach Robe has been very impressive as a pitching coach. He brings a lot to the staff and you guys will be happy with him.

    *JMV'S sleeper report. Expect a HUGE season from Piskos, Heath and Mayeux.

    *If we have no injuries, no covid, and no more transfers coming in, and the season started today. This would be MY defensive lineup.

    LF-Hayden
    CF-O' Neel
    RF-Heath
    3RD-Campbell
    SS-Langeliers
    2ND-Kotzelnick
    1ST-Mayeux
    DP-Roman
    C-Piskos
    P-Lamb

    *If you are looking for tickets then you will be in the outfield. All of the grandstand chairbacks and bleacher seats have been sold out!

    * I can't wait to catch up with WestUCajun, BeauCajun, Lcitsh and Roarman. And as always go Cajuns and see you at the ballpark.
    I thought it was interesting that you highlighted all of the very important parts on this team then when you named that starting lineup, one players that you had not highlighted at all was in the starting lineup . . .

    Correct. To get there you must have one elite pitcher. To win it, you must have 2 elite. We had that the year Covid shut us down. Dang Covid.

    Mr. Roarman might be the only poster in this board to actually have seen all 5. From what I understand he is one of the original fans from the start of the program.

    I'm not sure I would agree with that statement.

    We had two good pitchers. Kleist was starting to really turn it on. 2020 will always be the what if year. The Cajuns were set up to be in the conversation for a Natty.

    This year, we are going to make HISTORY, we will have four ELITE pitchers. Two will be able to throw 72 mph with control and 2 will be in the high 60's with a lot of spin and control. Watch for it. If you can spread the pitching duties out, your pitchers will remain fresh. Justin has already made reservations in OKC.

    I'm assuming you are joking. The only pitcher you're going to see throw 72 mph this year at Lamson Park is Montana Foutz.

    Mr. CajunVic it looks to be his defensive starting lineup. Who wasn't highlighted? I see information for every player am I missing someone?

    *The only way we make history is winning the Natty. *The Cajuns have played plenty of time in the WCWS.
    *We will not have two 72 mph pitchers.
    *We will not have four elite pitchers.
    *Remain fresh and not battle tested. Nice formula.
    *Reservations can always be canceled.

    She was a terrific pitcher. I think to be considered elite, a pitcher has to get their team to the world series.
