The Harahan native led the Tigers to a third place finish in the 2004 Women's College World Series and was a 2005 Easton All-American. In her fourth season at LSU, the former walk-on ranks in the top 10 in school history in home runs and RBIs.
In 2004, she broke the Tiger record for hits in consecutive games with 15 and tied the single-game RBI record with seven. In addition, she posted the second most home runs in a season with 13.
Also an outstanding student, Hill was named a first-team Academic All-American last year after earning first-team Academic All-District honors in 2004. She will graduate this spring with a double major in political science and finance while carrying a 3.8 grade point average.
The Brakettes, who play at Frank Deluca Hall of Fame Field in Stratford, Conn., are the newest addition to the seven-team National Pro Fastpitch league. The season will begin play on Wednesday, May 31. Former Tiger All-American LaDonia Hughes currently plays for the Arizona Heat, while former LSU All-American Trena Peel is a member of the Chicago Bandits.
Due to NCAA regulations, an active college senior may not sign with her respective franchise until their 2006 college season is finished. For players selected in the Senior Draft, they will be permitted to pursue any available roster spot on their assigned team after completing their college season.
