UL Softball Adds Kandra Lamb
Perhaps fans of the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns will now know exactly what a vegemite sandwich consist of when the 2019 college softball season begins.
Kandra Lamb, a right-handed pitcher from Kurrajong, New South Wales, Australia, recently signed a national letter of intent to play for Louisiana, beginning next season.
The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Lamb, a member of the Hills Hawks Softball Club, from the Hornsby District Softball Association, represented her country over the past couple of seasons, most recently playing for Australia in the WBSC Junior (under 19-years old) Women’s Softball World Championship in 2017, which were held in Clearwater, Florida.
Lamb was impressive in the event, striking out ten batters in only four innings of work against the Bahamas, while going on to allow only one earned run in the tournament.
Australia, led by Lamb, finished 7th in the event, among 26 participating countries.
The book on Lamb is that she throws pretty hard, with her riseball being clocked around 64 mph, and her change-up in the 52 mph range.
Command is also a positive for Lamb, as is her ability to pitch both inside and outside, as well as up and down.
