Abbeville (KATC) — This week’s Senior Spotlight feature’s two-sport Vermilion Catholic athlete Ainsley Mallet. Mallet is a three-time all-state softball player for the Screamin’ Eagles.
When she’s not excelling on the softball field, Mallet maintains a 4.0 GPA and is an all-district point guard for Vermilion Catholic’s girls basketball team.
Despite her athletic achievements, Mallet says this will be her final season on the field and on court as she hopes to study medicine in college. She credits her teammates and coach for keeping her motivated to excel.
“You just can’t beat that, Mallet said of her teammates and head coach Kim Guidry. “That’s what motivates us all season long to keep pushing on. Trying to achieve that goal of a state championship.”
