    One thing is clear.

    There aren't 25 other teams in the country that could possibly pull off this feat.

    No other Cajuns are in the top 50?

    No.

    This is the list of players that USA Softball focuses on at the beginning of the season. It is likely to radically change when the list of 25 finalists is released on April 22. It is possible that other Cajuns may be on that list.

    Dalton should be on the list of 50.

    Agreed. If Dalton is not one of their top 50 players in the country, the list seems worthless.

    I hope we have one or two more like that. If we 8 without, imagine what we are with.

    Not to worry. If production comes, they will be in the list of 25 finalists on April 22.

    It would surprise me if either Ellyson or Kleist was in the top 25 number, not because they aren't good enough but because they'll only get about 25-30 starts each.

    By the time the next list comes out, the Cajuns will have played all of their P5 opponents. If Megan and Summer win enough of those games, they will be on the list.

    I agree. Megan and Summer will get all the starts. They should win their share.

    I'm not sure they get ALL the starts. They will certainly pitch against the P5 teams, but I believe they want to give Kandra Lamb and Madison Garay some innings against some opponents. The results against the P5 teams should be sufficient to place them among the top 25 players.

    Coach has said that he has already spoken to Kendra Lamb and if both Megan and Summer are healthy Kendra will redshirt this year, with the expectation that she will be one of our go to arms in 2021. I think we will have a 3rd arm, but it will probably not be Kendra this year, the expectation is that if we use her this year we will be wasting her, since she will get very few innings. She will practice like she is playing just not be expected to play this year. Now all of that is out the window if one of the above gets hurt. He did say that if that were to happen, they would take the redshirt off Kendra.

    It's actually Kandra. Also, what you're saying is right based on what Coach said at media day this week. He expects to keep a steady rotation of the two all season. We'll see soon

    Correct. That's also what he said Wednesday night. Kandra will redshirt this year. At least that is the current plan.
