With every passing moment, UL's softball team moves closer to playing East Carolina on Friday in the Baton Rouge Regional.
Time cannot move fast enough for Cajun outfielder Karli Hubbard.
"We're anxious," said the junior from Comeaux High. "We're ready to get back on the field. We're just using this week to get ready."
That was the general consensus from UL players at Wednesday's practice as the Cajuns (46-12) prepare for a 4 p.m. matchup on Friday against East Carolina (36-28) at Tiger Park.
Vanessa Soto, who played her first three years at LSU before joining the Cajuns as a senior, is taking this week in stride. As a veteran, she's learned the importance of resting during a grinding season whenever she gets a chance. She's excited about everything she's experienced in her one year with the Cajuns.
