The Triple Crown isn’t just in horseracing anymore.
Brusly senior Carlie Comeaux’s fortunes started with the District 8-3A Most Valuable Player Award. Her fortunes continued rolling in with the All-Metro Most Valuable Player Award for Class 3A-B, and then garnered the NOLA-Baton Rouge MVP Award, as recognized by Nola.com.
Comeaux finished the season with a .516 batting average, 41 RBIs and 40 runs.
“She steadily improved year-in and year-out, and has always been a team player,” Brusly head softball coach Beau Bouvier said.
Comeaux also played in the Louisiana High School Athletic Association All-Star game during the weekend in Pineville.
She will play college softball at UL-Monroe, where she was recruited as a utility player, playing either infield or outfield.
“This was a really tough year for us because we had so many injuries which posed a lot of obstacles, so I had to take it upon myself to be one of the main leaders,” Comeaux said. “I made it my responsibility to motivate other players on the team, which also made me push myself harder.”
Bouvier was named Coach of the Year.
“This is more about what the girls and the assistant coaches and all the hard work they did this season,” Bouvier said. “We’ve got talent, and this year we were put in a position where we had to adjust and grow up fast.”
Other first-team entries for Brusly included pitcher Camryn Comeaux (.311), catcher Kaitlyn David (.307), second baseman Claire Daigle (.329) and LSU signee Akiya Thymes (.303).
First-team utility players included Maddie LaPrairie (.380), Jonette Fitzgerald (.413) and Carli Jo LeBlanc (.330).
Second-team entries from West Baton Rouge Parish included Brusly infielder Shelby Willis (.250) and Port Allen standout infielders Tristan Jeansonne (.355) and Margarite Laborde (.309).
