Accolades keep rolling in for softball star Tufi
The softball star was named to the LSWA’s first team all-state collegiate all-star team at the utility position after seeing time at first base and pitcher.
Tufi, of West High fame, set a Louisiana Tech freshman single-season record with 34 RBIs this season. She hit .281 in 52 games, with 10 doubles, a triple and four home runs.
The 5-foot-10 right-handed hitter led the NCAA D1 team with 67 total bases.
In the circle, she went 13-10 with a 3.43 ERA in 140.2 innings. She struck out 113 batters and recorded shutouts against Florida Atlantic and Southern Miss.
After the season, she was named to the all-freshman team in Conference USA. Now she’s a first-team all-Louisiana pick.
In high school, Tufi was a three-time winner of the Gatorade Alaska Player of the Year award. As a senior she hit .842. She’s as good, if not better, than any softball player to come out of this state.
