Hallie Kate Pullig, daughter of Jackson Parish residents Brent and Juliann Pullig, presented her mother with a very dirty softball uniform this past weekend. She also had something else in hand, but she kept that to herself. To be exact, what she had wasn’t IN her hand but ON her hand. It was the championship ring that she and her Louisiana Bombers 12U 2027 independent softball team brought home from the tournament that was played in Broussard, LA.
It isn’t the first ring that the talented 6th grader at Quitman High School has won this summer either as the Bombers squad is one of the top youth “travel ball” teams in the south. Based out of Natchitoches, LA and coached by Northwestern State University (NSU) head softball coach, David Pickett, the team is made up of young phenoms from all over Louisiana, East Texas and Arkansas.
Over the years Jackson Parish has been well represented on top “travel ball” teams in the south. Pullig, who is the only representative from the area on the Bombers team, is next in a long line of superior softball players that have made their name known on the national stage. The experience gained is incredible, as not only do the girls play all over the three-state region, soon they will compete in Premier Girls Fastpitch (PGF) sanctioned tournaments in Hoover, AL and Columbia, TN, as well as, participating in the prestigious Triple Crown Colorado Sparkler at the end of June.
