Softball: Lacy Prejean Joins Ragin' Cajuns Softball Coaing Staff
Acadiana-grown collegiate standout served on the Louisiana Softball staff from 2005-07
LAFAYETTE – Acadiana native Lacy Prejean is returning to the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Softball coaching staff as an assistant coach, head coach Gerry Glasco announced on Friday.
Prejean, who starred at Carencro High School and twice competed in the Women's College World Series with Alabama, was a member of Louisiana's coaching staff from 2005-07.
She joins associate head coach Mike Roberts as additions to the Ragin' Cajuns coaching staff beginning with the 2019 season. Prejean will work with the Ragin' Cajuns catchers and instruct the defense (infield and outfield).
"In hiring for this position, I was in search of longevity and someone who was from the community," Glasco said. "And an individual who also possessed elite college-level experience and had competed at the World Series.
"We were able to meet all of those criteria in Lacy," Glasco added. "Not only that, but we were able to find a person with strong character and integrity who possesses great leadership skills."
Prejean helped guide Louisiana to three NCAA Tournament appearances and was instrumental in directing and implementing the program's fall season camps.
After her first stint with the Ragin' Cajuns, Prejean returned to her alma mater in 2008 where she served as the director of operations on Pat Murphy's staff for two seasons, experiencing two more trips to the WCWS.
Prejean returned home in 2009 and entered the private sector, but remained active in the softball community including serving as a travel ball coach for Diamond Sports Hotshots from 2014-17.
Prejean earned a bachelor's degree in business (May 2003) and master's degree in sports administration (May 2009) from Alabama. The 2000 SEC Freshman of the Year, she was an All-SEC performer at catcher for four seasons with the Crimson Tide and started all but seven games during her career. She participated in the 2002 USA Softball National Team Camp and was a member of the 2006 USA Baseball Women's National team.
