Led by the arm of sophomore pitcher Jordan Wallace, the University of Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns came to Denton last weekend and swept the Mean Green in a three-game series.


In the first game of Saturday’s double-header, Wallace faced the UNT (18-17, 6-7) lineup and held it scoreless in four innings of work, leading to a 10-0 Cajun victory.

Senior pitcher Brittany Simmons first took on the task of dealing with the ULL (25-11, 8-4) hitters led by seniors Nerissa Myers and Matte Haack, who each had a pair of home runs, accounting for a combined nine of the Cajun’s 10 total runs.

“Even though this is a tough team, we did not play to our potential and we did not play our best,” Simmons said.

In game two, UNT was able to scrape together two runs, but still lost 8-2.

The ULL offense continued to use the long ball to its advantage, hitting three more home runs, pushing its total to seven for the day.


In the final game of the series, ULL shut out the Mean Green again, earning a 5-0 victory and pushing its win streak to seven games.

The UNT lineup faced Wallace for the second time in as many days. Wallace finished the weekend 2-0, pitching 14 innings, allowing four hits and striking out 32 Mean Green batters.

“We didn’t execute at all offensively over this weekend,” head coach T.J. Hubbard said. “We just never gave their pitchers any pressure whatsoever.”


After taking on the Sun Belt powerhouse, the Mean Green will travel to Norman, Okla., to take on the No. 1 team in the country – the University of Oklahoma Sooners (34-2) – and the 2012 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year, Keilani Ricketts.

“They are a very powerful team filled with a lot of talented players,” junior Brook Foster said. “As a team we will need to be on our toes at all times. You can’t take a break against them.”

The last time UNT and OU faced off, the Sooners won 9-4.

First pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
