According to Vermilion Today, Marceaux has a .655 batting average, 139 hits, 128 runs batted in, 40 home runs, 38 doubles, eight triples, and has only recorded three strikeouts in her two high school seasons thus far.

The La., native is one of two class of 2024 recruits to commit to the Crimson Tide recently, as pitcher Braya Hodges announced her verbal commitment to Alabama on Wednesday.
