The Louisiana Tech Softball team added to its corner infield on Thursday with the addition of first baseman Aubree Seaney.
Seaney arrives in Ruston after spending 2023 at Oregon State. The first baseman spent the 2019-2021 seasons at Tulsa. Seaney gives the Lady Techster lineup another left-handed bat and reliable defense with a career fielding percentage of .989, committing just five errors in 463 total chances.
“We are excited to welcome Aubree to the LA Tech softball family,” LA Tech Head Coach Josh Taylor said. “Aubree is a dynamic defender in addition to possessing a strong left-handed bat. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome her to the Ruston community and Louisiana Tech.”
At Oregon State, Seaney appeared in 27 games, making 20 starts, collecting 10 hits, including one double in addition to three RBI and two runs scored. Seaney collected her first multi-hit game of the season in a 4-0 win over No. 18 Oregon with a pair of singles. She tallied two hits in an 11-1 run-rule win over No. 9 Washington when she singled and doubled in the contest. She also posted a season-high two RBI in a win over BYU.
Before her time in Corvallis, Seaney played at Tulsa, where she appeared in 93 games and made 75 starts as a member of the Golden Hurricane. At Tulsa, she posted a .234 batting average with 51 hits, seven doubles, four home runs, 29 RBI, and 21 runs scored. Seaney collected five multi-hit games as a junior and four multi-hit games in her sophomore season, including three during the first weekend of the season. She made SportsCenter’s Top-10 plays on April 3, 2021, after hitting a walk-off home run off three-time NFCA First Team All-Region selection Alea White in a 5-4 win over No. 22 UCF. Seaney was also named Tulsa Defensive Player of the Year after posting a .996 fielding percentage in 2021.
In the classroom, she was a two-time NFCA Scholar-Athlete while at Tulsa.
“I chose Louisiana Tech because being part of a winning culture is important to me,” Seaney said. “I really liked the coaching staff and believe this will be a great place to finish my career.”
A native of Montverde, Fla., Seaney prepped at Montverde Academy, where she lettered all four years while posting a .502 batting average with 149 runs scored, 124 RBI, 57 doubles, 18 triples, three home runs. At the time of her graduation, she held 12 school records (eight defensive and four offensive). As a senior, she was named the Florida Defensive Player of the Year and garnered first-team all-state honors.
