    Lahare: Spark plug for Cajuns in April

    Wednesday, May 2 2018 11:54 PM EDT2018-05-03 03:54:39 GMT

    If you're looking for the nexus to Louisiana's success in the month April look no further than junior college transfer Daniel Lahare. After struggles in February and March, the Cajuns posted their best month since 2016, Lahare played a major role. The junior right fielder raised his batting average by 30 points to .317, and ended the month on a seven-game hitting streak. (Lahare hit 15-32, nearly .500 during in those games.) As the Cajuns begin a new month with a weekend series agai...

    In Gerry Glasco's first season at Louisiana it didn't take long for the head coach to move his focus from senior pitcher Kylee Jo Trahan, to the Cajuns bountiful crop of young pitchers. Trahan allowed just one run in her first 17.1 innings this season, but as the season progressed her role became defined as a bullpen arm, paving way to underclassmen Summer Ellyson and Casey Dixon. Ellyson, a sophomore, is second in the Sun Belt in ERA with a 1.57. She leads the Cajuns ahead of Traha...
