Former Orangefield softball standout Kaylee Ancelot will take her talents to Lamar University after a superb run at Angelina Junior College the past two seasons.

During the 2019 season as a freshman, Ancelot was a key cog in the Lady Roadrunners advancing to the NJCAA Division I Softball Tournament in Utah.

For her efforts, Ancelot was named to the NJCAA Region XIV All-Conference Team and also made the All-Tournament Team at the National Tournament after a big run there that saw Angelina JC finish as National Runnerup.

As a freshman, Ancelot hit a sizzling .443 overall to rank second on the team. Her 15 home runs and 65 runs batted in led the squad.

She ranked second on the team in hits (81), runs scored (53) and doubles (18).

At the National Tournament Ancelot hit a lofty .571 in helping lead the Lady Roadrunners to the national title game.

The Lady Roadrunners finished with an amazing 44-13 overall record and went 22-6 in conference play.

Ancelot was on her way to yet another stellar campaign as a sophomore this year before the COVID-19 virus cut short the season for her and the Lady Roadrunners.

Through 27 games, Ancelot hit a stellar .417 with seven home runs and 31 RBI.

Ancelot, a four-time All-Orange Leader Team selection as a Lady Bobcats, will look to continue to hone her great skills with the Lady Cardinals and head coach Amy Hooks next season.
