LOUISVILLE, Ky. – LSU softball signee Bailey Landry was one of 16 players in the nation to collect 2013 NFCA High School All-America First-Team accolades as announced by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.
Landry, who also tabbed NFCA High School All-South Region First-Team honors, will begin her LSU career as a freshman in 2014. As the leadoff hitter for East Ascension High School, Landry tallied a .537 batting to go along with eight home runs and 28 RBIs last season. She also has secured All-District, All-Metro and All-State honors in four straight seasons with the Lady Spartans.
Last season, the Tigers had Bianka Bell and Kelsee Selman garner NFCA All-America First-Team status. Selman will join Landry as a freshman for the 2014 season.
LSU finished its second season under head coach Beth Torina with the program’s 15th 40-win season since softball was reinstated in 1997. The Tigers are slated to return 16 letterwinners sparked by A.J. Andrews, an NFCA All-America Third-Team and All-SEC First-Team selection, along with Bianka Bell and Jacee Blades, a pair of 2013 All-SEC Second-Team picks.
