Ciara Briggs made her LSU dream official last week when she signed with the powerhouse SEC team.
She's been a spark plug in the So Cal Athletics lineup and instrumental to the success of Orange Lutheran High School. A five-tool player who can do everything, Briggs slaps, hits for average and power, steals and plays a mean outfield.
Batting nearly .500 last season, Briggs drove in 30 runs with 12 doubles, 4 triples, and 8 home runs. As impressive as her stats are, she has the instincts and character on the field that goes unmatched.
