No. 19 Louisiana softball opens the season with 2 wins over UAB Friday.

Game 1 was a close battle, with the Cajuns winning 2-0. Pitcher Kandra Lamb earned the win, going 5 innings with 8 strikeouts while allowing 4 hits. Kramer Ecshete's 2 RBI double in the 2nd inning, giving UL their only runs of the game.

Game 2 was a completely different story. UL winning 23-0 in 5 innings, and no that is not a typo. The 23 runs is the most ever during the Gerry Glasco era at Louisiana. The Cajuns had 5 home runs, including 2 from freshman Alexa Langeliers. Karly Heath, Taylor Roman and Sophie Piskos also hit homers. The Cajuns also scored at least 5 runs in every inning.
