Coming off its fourth Women’s College World Series appearance, the Baylor softball team has added three SEC transfers who will be immediately available to play in 2018.

Former Auburn catcher Carlee Wallace, Mississippi State pitcher Regan Green and LSU middle infielder Nicky Dawson are expected to provide the Lady Bears with immediate help.

“We are very excited about the addition of these three student-athletes,” Baylor coach Glenn Moore said. “All three will contribute in the 2018 season, giving us great experience and quality depth.”

Wallace, a senior, was an all-SEC catcher in her three seasons with Auburn. She led the Tigers with a .599 slugging and .464 on-base percentage and finished in the top 15 in the SEC with a .333 batting average. She led the SEC with 20 doubles while collecting seven homers and 52 RBIs.

Wallace helped Auburn reached the Women’s College World Series finals in 2016 and she made the World Series all-tournament team in 2015.

Green will add much needed depth to the Baylor pitching staff as she’s gone 11-6 with a 1.85 ERA in two seasons at Mississippi State. The right-hander will have two years of eligibility remaining for the Lady Bears.

Dawson will have three years of eligibility remaining after hitting .310 with eight stolen bases as a freshman at LSU. She was a former two-time Louisiana player of the year and NFCA high school All-American at Parkview Baptist in Baton Rouge. She stole 58 bases and set a national high school career record with 49 triples.
