HAMMOND, LA –Sophomore outfielder Katie Lacour was one of three Southeastern Louisiana players named to the All-Southland Conference Softball teams released last week.

Lacour, a graduate of Port St. Joe High School was joined by teammates Megan Moore, , junior third baseman, and sophomore designated player Amber Sather.

Lacour, an outstanding leadoff hitter on a Lady Tiger Shark team that reached the state Final Four, was named as a first-team selection.

Lacour, who was a second-team all-conference selection as a freshman, is the program's first student-athlete to earn first team All-Southland honors since former third baseman Heather Sherrill in 2008. All three SLU selections are on the All-Southland teams for the second straight season.

Moore and Sather were both honorable mention choices.
Lacour was the catalyst of the Southeastern offense from the leadoff spot, leading the team in batting with a .397 batting average, hits with 60, runs-scored with 27 and a .477 on-base percentage.

Her batting average was the highest by a Lady Lion since Dee Rancher hit .405 in 1999. Lacour, who finished the season on an 11-game hitting streak, hit .425 in conference games and closed the season out strong by hitting .508 in the month of April.
