(KATC) — This week’s Senior Spotlight features Crowley Ladies 2018 All-state softball pitcher Nella LaGrange. LaGrange returns for her senior season this spring a season removed from striking out 186 batters as a junior.
Last season, as a junior, LaGrange led Crowley to its first ever state semi finals appearance. Her two hit shut out win over number one ranked Brusly was the exclamation point on what had already been a stellar career at Crowley.
This season, LaGrange returns with high expectations for herself and her team.
“For my personal goal, I would like to hit 200 strikeouts,” LaGrange said. “But as a team goal, we hope to make it farther than we did last year and just connect a lot better.”
