In a year that took many twists and turns for the Louisburg College Hurricanes softball program, the team managed to rattle off another remarkable season. Following a Regular Season Region X Title, the Hurricanes took off to Sumter, SC and steamrolled through the Region X Tournament, allowing just four runs in the event. For their efforts at the Region Championship, the Canes were rewarded with a trip to Alexander City, Alabama where they would play for the District I Championship and the right to go to St. George, Utah and the NJCAA Division I National Championships.
Central Alabama proved to be too much for Louisburg and the unprecedented season came to a close. "This team fought and clawed all year long to earn everything they got," said first year Head Coach Eric Lee. "It was a constant uphill battle for this group of kids - from the injury bug, to shear lack of numbers, to all the adversity and change they dealt with throughout. I could not be more proud of them than what I am."
Louisburg racked up postseason individual awards, too. Freshman Liv Garman took home Region X Player of the Year honors and freshman Mary Anna Clement took home Pitcher of the Year for Region X. Both Garman and Clement were named First Team All-Region and they were joined on the First Team by Summer Phillips.
Louisburg returns a trio of All-Region performers from the 2018 season as they look forward to 2019 - Garman, Clement and Colclough. Added to that trio will be Redshirt Freshman Leeann Kluk and a 15 player recruiting class consisting of players from all over the state of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Canada.
