Former Ragin' Cajuns softball star Karli Hubbard has turned her success in the college ranks into a championship at the professional level.
Hubbard and her USSSA Pride teammates recently wrapped up the National Pro Fastpitch Championship Series by defeating the Chicago Bandits in the league's three-game championship series at near by McMurry Park in Sulphur, La. last week.
The Pride defeated the Bandits 7-2 in the deciding third game to capture the 2010 Crowles Cup, the first championship in the Pride's history.
Hubbard was named an NFCA All-American and Sun Belt Player of the Year in 2009, her senior season at UL. She was a four year starter for the Cajuns. She posted a .361 career batting average including a .426 mark during her senior season. While at UL, Hubbard was 51-for-54 in the stolen base category and had a career .411 on-base percentage.
The 2010 edition of the Cajuns start their fall exhibition schedule when they travel to Spring, Texas for the Spring Klein College Classic in less than a month on October 2-3.
