MONROE, La.- The ULM softball team hosted their annual alumni softball game on Saturday, October 27 in conjunction with Homecoming Week on the campus. Over 15 alumni attended the event, which also featured a post-game barbecue. It was the 27th straight year that Head Coach Rosemary Holloway-Hill has welcomed former softball players back to Bayou.

"It is always great to get our former players on campus again," said Holloway-Hill, the winningnest coach in Warhawk athletics history. "They get to see all the changes to campus that have been made while they were gone and reconnect with their former teammates and friends they met here."

The game featured current Warhawk players against alumni in a light hearted slow pitch matchup. The alumni team was composed of players from multiple graduating classes that now live in different parts of the country, and many brought their families to share in the experience.

"As their coach, I love to see how they have succeeded in their careers, meet their families and also have them share their experience as a former Indian/Warhawk with our present team," said Holloway-Hill. "It is great to see what they are doing- some are coaches, some are businesswomen, some are grad students. One, Polly Hale, came back to campus for the first time in years after serving three tours in the military overseas serving our country. I am very proud of all their accomplishments."

Below is a full list of the alumni that participated in the 2012 game:

Ellen Austin, Lori Tande Bruscato, Jenny Buller, Erica Darden, Kate Girardi, Michelle Farrell-Fink, Heather Hanson, Polly Hale, Jessica Keith, Brianna Love, Charlotte Pastor, Lindsay Rittenhouse, Cary Rousel, Cori Scorggins-Smit, Shanna Swillie.
