LSU softball center fielder Ciara Briggs added to her resume this week with a second consecutive Golden Glove.
The award is given annually by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.
In addition to winning the Gold Glove, Briggs is also likely to make back-to-back all-defensive teams. Briggs moved to center field last year after beginning her career as a left fielder in 2021, a season where made the All-SEC Newcomer team.
At the plate, Briggs has totaled 218 career hits in Baton Rouge while scoring 150 runs. She’s appeared in nearly 200 games for Beth Torina’s squad.
The only thing better than one Gold Glove is two Gold Gloves!
Ciara Briggs is a back-to-back Gold Glove Award Winner.

Her defense got her on SportsCenter’s top 10 in 2022 when she tumbled over a wall to make the catch.

Earlier this year, she laid out in left-center to make a spectacular diving catch that clinched a win for LSU.
Ciara Briggs is a gold-glove winner for a reason 😳

Briggs will have another year of eligibility left should she choose to use it. LSU will lose some significant pieces so getting their star center fielder back would be a huge boost.
