Jessica and Jacquelyn Adams Verbally Commit to Louisiana Lafayette
Conroe, TX – December 12th, 2019 - Scrap Yard Internationals (SI) is proud to announce that 18U athletes Jessica and Jacquelyn Adams have verbally committed to attend the University of Louisiana at Lafayette!
Jessica and Jacquelyn attend Bryan High School and will graduate in 2021. Jessica, a pitcher and third baseman, holds a 3.7 GPA, was named to the All-Academic team, and boasts a long list of softball achievements as a member of the Bryan Vikings. She broke the single-season homerun record and is currently tied for the all-time homerun record at Bryan High School. While in school she loves learning about Law Enforcement, and in her spare time she enjoys playing with her dogs and watching old Women’s College World Series games. Jacquelyn, a first baseman and catcher, boasts a 4.4 GPA, was named to the All-Academic Team for 3 years, and is ranked academically in the top 3% in her class, in addition to being named to numerous athletic achievements. In the classroom, she loves to study biology, and when she’s not at softball or school, she enjoys reading and drawing.
When Jessica was asked about the next step in her academic and softball career, she said, “I knew as soon as I stepped foot on the University of Louisiana campus that this is where I’m supposed to be. I’m mostly looking forward to being coached by Coach Glasco, one of the greatest coaches in the game today, and being a part of a team that competes in every aspect. The traditions, the loyalty of the fans, and of course the food have me excited to be a Ragin’ Cajun!
When Jacquelyn was asked about heading to Louisiana, she said, “When I first arrived at the University of Louisiana I felt at home. The academic support for student athletes is incredible. The academic counselor is very one-on-one with student athletes, which impressed me greatly. I’m also excited about the athletic training facilities, especially the weight room. I can’t wait to be coached by Coach Glasco and become a Ragin Cajun!”
The Adams sisters joined Scrap Yard Fast Pitch as a member of the 16U SI team, where Khadija Neely is the head coach. Khadija was overjoyed to hear about the commitment, saying “Jessica and Jacquelyn Adams are not your typical yin and yang duo! At first, I couldn’t tell if either one would smile very often. However, as they warmed up to our program’s culture it became evident that both of these young ladies are true students of the game! They may seem quiet but once they “flip the switch” their focus is second to none and is something I want in my dugout every season! I am blessed to have been a part of their journey to the next level! Congratulations ladies, we’re all so proud of you!”
Jessica and Jacquelyn’s parents, Donna and Robert Adams, were thrilled to share their thoughts, saying, “Jac and Jess have been committed since the first day they picked up a softball as toddlers. Fastpitch softball is in their blood and their discipline and hard work have rewarded them with an amazing opportunity at the University of Louisiana. UL Head Softball Coach Glasco, his coaching staff and the softball support staff all showed our girls how committed they are in helping them be successful on the field as well as in the classroom and with that, there's nowhere else they wanted to be! Our girls are going to be RAGIN CAJUNS and we couldn't be more proud!”
Congratulations to Jessica, Jacquelyn, and the entire Adams family!
