During Morlet's playing days, the 49ers claimed two Big West Conference championships (2005 and 2008), and made three trips to the NCAA Tournament.
Morlet finished her career with a .250 batting average and a .972 fielding percentage. The speedy left-handed hitter was also 18-for-22 in stolen base attempts.
As a senior, Morlet helped lead the 49ers to their sixth Big West title and 18th NCAA Regional appearance. The All-Big West honorable mention selection played in 41 games, starting 32 times as an outfielder. Morlet hit for a career-high .264 clip with 14 runs scored.
Morlet prepped at St. Paul High School in Santa Fe Springs, Calif., where she was a four-year letterwinner and three-time all-league selection (2002-04). Morlet was tabbed the Del Rey League most valuable player as a junior and senior, while also being selected to the Press-Telegram Dream Team.
Morlet earned her bachelor's degree in human development in 2009.
