University of Louisiana softball’s Summer Ellyson is set to return for another season next spring.
With the COVID-19 global outbreak wiping out the remainder of the spring sports season, seniors have been granted permission to return for another season of eligibility in 2021.
First reported by ESPN 1420, Ellyson took to social media to announce her plans to return to the diamond for a sixth season.
Prior to the season being cut short, the senior pitcher posted a 1.83 ERA and a record of 11-1 in her 76.1 innings pitched. As a junior in 2019, Ellyson posted an ERA of 1.11 with a 39-6 record and 354 strikeouts in 50 appearances in the pitcher’s circle on her way to earning the Sun Belt Conference Pitcher of the Year award.
Fellow UL seniors Alissa Dalton and Julie Rawls will be re-joining her on the diamond.
