Keeli Milligan Seems To Be Enjoying Her Time With UL Softball
It looks as though one key transfer is very happy that she has joined the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns for her final year of softball eligibility.
I'm looking forward to seeing Milligan in a UL uniform next spring, and I'm expecting big things from her.
A speedy, leadoff-type of hitter, Milligan will be a senior next season, after playing three first three years of her career at Texas A&M.
A native of Vidor, Texas, Milligan hit a .307 last season for the Aggies, to go along with a .400 on-base percentage, while stealing 29 bases in 32 attempts.
As a freshman in 2016, Milligan hit a .379, while setting a school record with 54 stolen bases. For her efforts, she was named to the All-SEC Second Team and SEC All-Freshman Team, as well as being selected a top ten finalist for the Division I National Freshman of the Year award.
In 2017, as a sophomore, Milligan hit a .319, after being named to named to the National Player of the Year watch list before the season.
Milligan is now reunited with Louisiana head coach Gerry Glasco, who was an assistant at Texas A&M, during her first two seasons.
The Cajuns, who went 41-16 last season, return to fall action on Thursday, October 4, when they play host to McNeese St. at Lamson Park.
