Carlie Comeaux, a 5’3” utility player from Brusly High School’s softball team, signed a written offer of admission Tuesday afternoon to attend the University of Louisiana-Monroe.
In three years at Brusly High, Comeaux earned first team all-state, all-metro and all-district accolades as an outfielder in both 2012 and 2013. She was a 2013 Times-Picayune All-Area First Team selection, as well.
With Comeaux on board, the Panthers were the 2013 Class 3A State Champions and made three straight state tournament appearances under head coach Beau Bouvier. Comeaux was also a member of the 2011 state runner-up squad.
A force at the plate, Comeaux hit .515 as a junior. She also became the only player in Brusly history to hit homers from both sides of the plate.
Comeaux also earned three varsity letters in volleyball.
She plays for the Maniax Fastpitch club out of Baton Rouge.
Comeaux has two younger sisters and a younger brother. She is the daughter of Jory and Tiffanie Comeaux.
Her father, Jory, played golf at Louisiana Tech from 1991-94. Her cousin, Scott Gauthreaux played four years of basketball at Northwestern State. Another cousin, Kevin Windham, is a retired motocross racer.
The ULM Warhawks open the season Feb. 7 against Tennessee Tech as part of the Plainsmen Tournament, hosted by Auburn University.
