Rated Fifth-Best Building of LSU Architecture

“Best seen at night, when its gables and overhang seem to brighten into shimmering white sails winging through cool ebony skies, the softball stadium shows that LSU can come up with a building that plays to something other than the local taste for plantation imagery and Greco-Roman bric-a-brac. Welling out of a hillock in a way that suggests strong shoulders on the brink of swinging a home run, the softball stadium evidences a modest freshness that brings a smile and savors of popcorn and hot dogs.” - LSU Faculty Senate Monthly Newsletter • October 2010 Stadium Amenities • LSU Locker Room • Outdoor Deck overlooking Playing Field • Team Lounge • Meeting Facility • Stadium-Style Theater for Video Breakdown • Training Facility • Equipment Room • Indoor Batting Cages • Umpire Locker Rooms

media worldwide Media Training LSU is one of the few schools where student-athletes go through media training to enhance their communication skills. Dr. Tommy Karam and Dr. Shirley White are two experts in the field who give training sessions to student-athletes here on campus. The Academic Center features

a mock press conference setting to get student-athletes acclimated to giving interviews in front of both print and electronic media. Karam and White record the mock interviews on camera and then provide feedback, allowing student-athletes to become more comfortable and confident when doing actual interviews.

Social Media LSU has been on the cutting edge in collegiate athletics when it comes to integrating social media into its traditional website and publications. Through its sports-specific Facebook pages and feeds on the micro-blogging site Twitter, LSU offers its fans in-game updates, and behind-thescenes access to coaches and studentathletes. For more information, visit LSUsports.net/connect.

ESPN, SEC and LSU In 2009-10, ESPN and the Southeastern Conference reached a milestone 15-year agreement. ESPN acquired rights to every SEC home football game -excluding those on the CBS network broadcast package -- and serves as the exclusive national cable home and the syndication rightsholder for the conference. LSU has made 11 appearances on the ESPN family of networks since the 2010 season as part of that package.

My years at LSU are dear to my heart and I will forever bleed purple and gold.” Sylvia Fowles

“When you go back and get your degree, it says a lot about your work ethic. I accomplished things that I will never forget here. I come home to Miami, but a lot of people don’t know me like everyone in Baton Rouge and the fans. Baton Rouge and LSU has been my home. If I had to do it all over again, LSU would be the only place I would do it.”

Allison Hightower Guard (2007-10)

2009 NFL Draft No. 3 Pick

“Throughout the entire recruiting process I always knew LSU was the best choice. Being from the great state of Louisiana, LSU was a home away from home. I knew that this would be a place I could grow as a student-athlete and a young man. The coaches, faculty, and the 92,000 marvelous fans only help to make the decision much easier. Looking back on it, I couldn’t have asked for more from the experience.”

Two-time All-SEC and State Farm Honorable Mention All-American

“This is a tremendous honor to graduate from LSU. Coming from Texas, I always knew this was the right choice. From my time on the court to the classroom, LSU has been home to me. Getting a degree is what it is all about and I thank everyone who had an impact on my time at LSU. What we accomplished and all of the friends I have made, that will always be a part of my life.”

About LSU Retired Jerseys

The retirement of the jerseys of Casanova, McDonald, Macklin and Augustus comes under a new provision of the LSU jersey retirement bylaws that says the retirement of an athlete’s jersey in a particular sport does not preclude a current student-athlete in that sport from wearing the jersey number in that or any other sport, subject to the discretion of the head coach. This provision applies only to jerseys retired after January 1, 2007, so the numbers worn by Maravich, Pettit, O’Neal, Cannon and Bertman may never again be worn by future student-athletes in their respective sports. To have a jersey retired at LSU, an athlete must have completed intercollegiate competition for LSU a minimum of five years prior to nomination. Athletes must have demonstrated truly unusual and outstanding accomplishments, exceeding and in addition to all criteria used for Hall of Fame selection. Nominees must have a unanimous vote of support from the Hall of Fame committee.

Rudy Macklin

Rudy Macklin was a two-time basketball All-American selection during his Tiger career from 1976-81 during which time he became LSU’s all-time leading rebounder with 1,276 boards and the second-leading scorer in school history behind only the legendary Pete Maravich with 2,080 points. He led the Tigers to two Elite Eight appearances and the 1981 Final Four in Philadelphia. He still holds the school single game rebound record with 32, a mark like some of the great records in any sport that may never be broken.

Tommy Casanova

• 20-time track All-American • Two-time Olympian

37

Richard Thompson

Tommy Casanova is the only three-time All-American in the history of LSU football and is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. During his Tiger career from 1969-71, Casanova personified versatility for his myriad of talents as he played offense, defense, returned punts and kickoffs. One of just two three-time All-SEC performers at LSU, he played six seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals of the NFL while earning his medical degree.

Ben McDonald

• Eight-time track All-American • 2 008 Olympic Silver medalist

2012 Outlook

LSU

seniors haven’t won a regional yet and haven’t won a conference championship. They’ve been in some battles, and they’ve done some good things. A championship is what they talk about. They want a championship, they want to leave their mark and they want to hang a trophy in the hallway. They want to do all of those things. From the minute we got here, they expressed that that’s where they wanted to be, and it fit perfectly with where we were trying to go as well.” To reach those goals, Torina has challenged the 2012 Tigers to have the ‘it’ factor in every aspect of the program whether it be during the execution of a hitting drill at practice to delivery season tickets to the fans. “One thing we’ve talked a lot about during the fall and leading into the season is having the ‘it’ factor,” Torina said. This ‘it’ factor, we talked about creating it with this team, and it’s kind of that intangible factor that you can’t necessarily put words on. Coach Miles talked about it a lot in his football postgame interviews and talked all year that this team just had ‘it.’ “Our tag line is ‘whatever it takes’. We’ve talked a lot with our players about what it takes to create that, and what is it about those special teams that have that ‘it’ factor,” Torina continued. “It’s determination, it’s chemistry and it’s work ethic. All of those things go into creating that ‘it’ factor. I feel like this is a very solid unit of 22 players, and all will contribute this season.” LSU also heads into its fourth season of “Softball on the Berm” at Tiger Park. The park has gone through many additions from when it first opened its gates in 2009, including a state-of-the-art ticket booth and training facility. During the fall season, LSU played host the National Pro Fastpitch All Stars as part of the league’s college tour. The Tigers carried a 1-0 lead into the seventh inning, and had the NPF All Stars down to their final out. “I’m pretty proud of how it went,” Torina said after the game. “I’m proud of our team, I’m proud of the city of Baton Rouge and the LSU fans. I think this performance can boost us to play with anybody in the country. If we can play with professional players then obviously we can play with anybody in Division one. This is going to be a really good year for LSU softball. I feel really good about what is in store for us.”

THE BATTERY BRITTANY MACK The 2012 LSU softball team is ready to usher in the next chapter of its storied history under first-year coach Beth Torina. She is ready to build on a championship legacy and tradition of two Women’s College World Series trips, five SEC regular season crowns, five SEC Tournament titles and 13 NCAA Regional appearances. “Before talking about the 2012 season, I would like to thank Yvette Girouard and everything that she has done for this program and what she has built,” Torina said. “It’s through her efforts that we’re standing in one of the nation’s top facilities and one of the best places to play college softball. It’s no question that this is done by all of her effort and the efforts of the staff previous to our current staff. I want to thank her for giving us these 22 young women. This team was selected 100 percent by her, and I love them like they were my own. We thank her every day for everything that she’s done for this program.” The Tigers return all the necessary ingredients with a solid nucleus of experience, depth and talented newcomers to return to the pinnacle of the softball world. Torina and the Tigers have their sights high and hope to earn the program’s third trip to Oklahoma City. “Number one is to be in the College World Series, without question,” Torina said. “It was very clear to us as a coaching staff where this team wanted to go.

As is the case for any collegiate softball program, LSU’s pitching staff will have the biggest impact on the Tigers. Reigning All-SEC First-Team, NFCA All-South Region First-Team and NFCA AllAmerican Third-Team performer Brittany Mack headlines a three-arm arsenal and is looking to build on a 20-7 junior campaign. Mack ranked among the SEC’s elite in ERA (1.74), opponent batting average (.187) and strikeouts (209). She won 10 of her last 13 decisions, including a pair of wins during LSU’s sweep of No. 1 Alabama last season. Rachele Fico also finished last season strong and returned to her 2010 SEC Freshman of the Year and NFCA All-South Region First-Team form. Her 183 strikeouts were seventh in the SEC. During the NCAA Regional opener against Syracuse, Fico notched 18 strikeouts. The 18 Ks were the second-most in program history for a single-game, only behind Britni Sneed’s 19 strikeout against Oklahoma at the 2001 Women’s College World Series. Meghan Patterson compiled a 6-1 mark during her freshman campaign and picked up eight or more strikeouts during six of her eight starts. The Destrehan native finished the season with 91 Ks in 53.2 innings of work.

2012 Outlook

“We’re led by our pitching staff,” Torina said. “All three of them are very talented, they’re very special and they will keep us in every ball game on the schedule this season. Any one of them could be a No. 1 at many universities throughout the country. We’re really lucky to have a staff of that caliber all in one place.” Calling the shots for LSU behind the plate will be Morgan Russell and Lauren Houston. The veteran duo has combined to start in 185 games over the last three seasons for the Tigers.

THE INFIELD LSU’s infield was key as the Tigers compiled a sparkling .973 fielding percentage in 2011, a second straight Top 20 national finish. Tammy Wray, an All-Louisiana Second Team selection, returns to the hot corner. She tallied 126 assists, second-most in the SEC. Offensively, Wray belted eight home runs and 33 RBIs to rank second and third on the squad. Opposite Wray on the diamond will be Ashleigh Kuhn at first base. The Northwestern State transfer sat out last season due to NCAA rules. She tallied a .289 average with 28 RBIs during the 2009 season with the Demons. Heidi Pizer and Dylan Supak also are a candidates to see time at first base. Pizer chipped in nine RBIs in limited action, while Supak collected TSWA All-State and AllDistrict accolades all four years at LaGrange High School in Texas. Allison Falcon, Juliana Santos and Cassie Trosclair will all see time in the middle of the infield. Defensively when not on the field, the trio could see time in the lineup at designated player. Falcon is back to full strength after an injury cut her 2011 season to only five appearances. LSU was 30-3 when she was the starting shortstop in 2010. Santos was a strong force at the top of the lineup as LSU won 33 of 43 games last season when Santos batted in the No. 2 hole. She cranked a team-leading nine doubles en route to 26 RBIs. Trosclair made 50 appearances, including 36 starts after transferring from Auburn. Her .270 batting average was upped to a .328 clip when she was in the No. 7 or No. 8 spot in the lineup. Rikki Alcaraz and Kailey McCasland will provide depth on the infield and also are in the running to see time in the lineup at designated player.

Alcaraz, from Marist High School in Orland Park, Ill., picked up All-Conference and AllArea honors during the 2008, 2009 and 2010 season. McCasland hails from California’s San Clemente High School where she secured multiple All-South Coast League FirstTeam picks. “We have a lot of depth and some great competition in a variety of positions on the field,” Torina said. “Another thing that’s contributed is that I’m new, and I haven’t seen these guys play in a ton of games yet. As a coach, I don’t want to make judgment on people solely based on practice, because I don’t think that’s fair. “There are a bunch of girls that want to be great, and they’re working hard every day,” Torina continued. “They all deserve to play, without question. They’ve all worked and deserve a chance and deserve a spot.”

THE OUTFIELD LSU’s outfield will have a veteran presence with Ashley Applegate and Ashley Langoni on the corners. Simone Heyward also is back to patrol centerfield. Applegate will start in right field after missing most of last season due to injury. Being used primarily at designated player, she spent the majority of the 2010 season with over a .300 batting average and produced 12 multi-hit efforts. She also scored 35 runs and drew 32 walks in 2010. Heyward, an 2011 All-SEC All-Freshman honoree, turned in a team-leading .294 batting average, scored a team-high 39 runs, drew a team-best 28 walks and added a team-leading 23 stolen bases from the leadoff spot. The 23 stolen bases ranked sixth in the SEC. Langoni compiled a .271 batting average to go along with five dingers and 38 RBIs. Her 48 hits and 12 multi-hit performances paced the Tigers, while her 38 RBIs were second. She also produced several ESPN type web gem plays from her left field post. A.J. Andrews, Jacee Blades, Alex Boulet, Katie Guillory and Tammy Vermeulen will provide depth in the outfield. All five players possess blazing speed and are candidates to serve as pinch runners in critical situations. Andrews racked up 57 stolen bases on a crisp .557 hitting ratio while at Countryside High School in Florida and was selected to play in the 2011 Under Armour All-America Game.

2012 Outlook

LSU

“I like to have some speed, some power,” Torina continued. “We work on defense the same amount of time we work on offense, and we don’t go a day without doing one or the other. This team is capable of all of the things I’m asking them to do. We can run, we can hit, we can play defense and definitely pitch. They have all of the tools and all of the things I need them to have.”

THE SCHEDULE

ashley langoni Blades, a utility option, will be utilized in the infield when not in the outfield. She started 38 games and notched a .252 batting average last season. She also garnered a perfect fielding percentage with 60 putouts and 25 assists. Boulet scored on 14 of her 28 pinch running attempts. She also registered 19 stolen bases to not only rank second on the team but tied for 10th in the SEC. Guillory checked in with 17 pinch running appearances after she missed the first two months of the season due to injury. Vermeulen was named to the Section 11 Team and played travel ball for Florida’s Gold Coast Hurricanes squad. “I can’t ask for a lot more than this team, and I can’t ask for a lot more than what they’ve given us as a staff,” Torina said. “They have done every single thing we’ve asked them to. They’ve bought into every change and everything we’ve asked them to do.”

The Tigers affirmed their long-standing commitment of facing the nation’s elite as they square off with five of the eight participants from the 2011 Women’s College World Series. In total, the 2012 slate features 27 games against 13 teams that qualified for the 2011 NCAA Tournament. “From start to finish, the 2012 schedule will be very challenging for the Tigers,” Torina said. “Our team will have to put forth its best effort every time we take the field. We will have many opportunities throughout the season to prove ourselves matching up with softball’s best-of-the-best.” LSU will play host to three non-conference tournaments, including the Tiger Classic [Feb. 10-12] on opening weekend. The Tigers square off with Big 10 NCAA Tournament foes Michigan and Penn State before meeting Louisiana Tech. LSU welcomes Alcorn State, McNeese State and South Alabama for the Tiger Invitational [Feb. 25-26], while Mississippi Valley State and Troy head to the Capitol City for the Purple & Gold Challenge [March 9-10] to conclude the non-conference tournament schedule. LSU hits the road for the first time at the high profile Louisville Slugger Desert Classic [Feb. 18-19] in Las Vegas, Nev., where the Tigers meet up with 2011 WCWS participant California, 2011 NCAA Tournament Team DePaul, Cal State Northridge and Utah State. At the prestigious The Preview [March 2-4], LSU has a quartet of games scheduled with 2011 WCWS participants Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. The Tigers will play at a pair of games at the ASA Hall of Fame Stadium, home of the WCWS, in addition to the campus sites. “We are fortunate to put a team on the field that has a great deal of experience,” Torina said. “Our eight seniors have the poise and confidence to tackle these types of marquee games. They truly have the chance to go out on top. There’s no question that we will have to show up at our best level each and every day.” LSU welcomes ACC members Florida State [Feb. 15] and Georgia Tech [March 21] along with Southeastern Louisiana [Feb. 21] for midweek action to Tiger Park. The Tigers also take on Nicholls State [March 7 & April 4] and McNeese State [March 28 & April 18] for midweek home-and-home series. The rugged SEC schedule gets underway with a home mid-week doubleheader against 2011 NCAA Tournament participant Auburn [March 14]. Other league series inside the friendly confines of Tiger Park include three-game sets with Mississippi State [March 16-18], Arkansas [March 30-April 1], Ole Miss [April 20-22] and 2011 NCAA Super Regional qualifier Georgia [April 27-29]. The Tigers have conference road trips to South Carolina [March 23-25] before meeting SEC heavy hitters which include 2011 WCWS participant Alabama [April 6-8], 2011 NCAA Tournament participant Tennessee [April 13-15], 2011 WCWS finalist Florida [April 24] and 2011 NCAA Super Regional qualifier Kentucky [May 4-6]. “The atmosphere for SEC softball is second to none,” Torina said. “Each team gives one another their best shot week in and week out. I know our fans are already excited for the season. Our players are ready for the challenges ahead.”

what they’re saying about

Beth Torina

“We tried to hire Beth as an assistant coach before the 2008 season, but she really wanted to be a head coach. I have watched her career since she graduated from Florida. From players to coaches, she is a favorite. She has continued to improve by coaching in the National Pro Fastpitch league. That has allowed Beth to surround herself with the brightest softball minds and best players in the country. I believe LSU has landed a great young coaching talent that will be a shining star for years to come.” -Yvette Girouard, Retired LSU Softball Coach

“Beth is a perfect fit for LSU because she is a true leader with the tools of knowledge, passion and humility to recruit, teach and the ability to lead young women to be the best student-athletes possible. I am excited to see LSU softball with Beth as its leader because the Tigers will continue to be one of the most competitive softball programs in the country.” -Jessica Mendoza, ESPN Softball Analyst and USSSA Pride member

“Beth possesses all of the qualities that will allow her to be a successful coach in the Southeastern Conference. She is intelligent, a great recruiter and understands the game at the highest level. In addition, Beth is one of the best pitching minds in the country and as a result, I am confident she will keep LSU in the hunt for another SEC Championship and a return to the Women’s College World Series.” -Rachel Lawson, Kentucky Head Coach

Season Review

Fight: 2011 Tigers Memorable in Girouard’s Final Season THE HALL OF FAME COACH RIDES OFF INTO THE SUNSET The LSU softball team fought to the finish during the 2011 season as the Tigers compiled another 40-win season under the guidance of Hall of Fame coach Yvette Girouard. Prior to the Purple & Gold Challenge in March, Girouard announced that the 2011 season would be her last with the Purple & Gold. After a seven-game losing streak which included five setbacks versus No. 2 Florida and No. 1 Georgia put the Tigers at 15-12, LSU founds its rhythm for a memorable finishing kick. The Tigers ripped off a 25-6 record down the stretch highlighted by a sweep of No. 1 Alabama in April to climb up to a fourth-place finish in the SEC race. During LSU’s final regular season home series against South Carolina, current and former players along with opposing coaches spotlighted Girouard’s impact on college softball with a video tribute. The Hall of Fame coach also penned a hand-written thank you note as a keepsake poster for the fans. The Tigers returned to the NCAA Tournament. After losing its opening game to Syracuse, LSU fired back with back-to-back wins before taking host and No. 16 seed Texas A&M to extra innings. After the loss, Girouard left her visor in the third base coaches box honoring the tradition of players leaving their cleats at their positions following the final game of their careers.

G’S LEGENDARY EFFECT ON LSU Pick whatever criteria you want to use and you’ll get the same result: Yvette Girouard was synonymous with outstanding softball. Her effect on LSU, the SEC and NCAA Softball has been powerful. A pioneer of the game, the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Hall of Famer amassed 1,285 career victories, 526 of them coming at LSU, to rank second in the NCAA history. Girouard’s legacy is steeped in championship tradition as the fourtime SEC Coach of the Year guided the Tigers to a pair of Women’s College World Series appearances (2001 and 2004) in addition to three SEC Regular Season championships (2001, 2002 and 2004) and four SEC Tournament titles (2001, 2002, 2004 and 2007). She coached nine different players to 14 All-American selections during her 11 seasons at LSU. The Broussard, La., native played an instrumental role to the opening

Girouard played her own personal touch by giving the architects many of the ideas for the park’s unique features, including the arches at the front of the stadium and the 1,000-seat outfield berm. For her efforts, the deck overlooking Tiger Park was named the “Yvette Girouard Clubhouse Deck”. On June 9, the Louisiana State Legislature honored Girouard with a resolution for her “extraordinary coaching career.”

LSU MAKES HISTORY ON ESPNU ALL-ACCESS SHOW LSU softball was the first female sports program to be spotlighted on ESPNU’s All-Access show. The 30-minute piece originally aired to a national audience on Wednesday, May 4th. “We were extremely honored to have ESPN, the worldwide leader in sports, spend a day with our program,” head coach Yvette Girouard said. “This is another prime example of how much our game has grown during my career. We’re excited for our fans and the nation to get an inside look at the day-to-day operations of Tiger softball.” Girouard opened the show by giving an inclusive tour of the state-ofthe-art Tiger Park facility, including a glance inside the team locker room. Girouard along with associate coach James DeFeo and assistant coach Kristen Hobbs Cain had the cameras rolling during their daily morning staff meeting. Junior pitcher Brittany Mack showed the cameras around campus for stops at Mike the Tiger’s cage, a team weights session led by Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coordinator Melissa Moore and a glimpse inside the Cox Communications Academic Center for Student-Athletes. The piece continued with a training room visit guided by Associate Athletics Trainer Ana Gross before all three coaches were miked up during the team’s afternoon practice session. “It was a once in a lifetime experience and a privilege to show the ESPN cameras around our gorgeous campus,” Mack said. “We’re very excited to be not only the first softball team, but the first female sports program to be featured. It speaks volumes about our team.”

FICO FANS 18 IN NCAA OPENER VERSUS SYRACUSE Rachele Fico was masterful in LSU’s NCAA Tournament opener versus Syracuse. She allowed five baserunners, only two of them to reach scoring position, during her first 10 innings of work.

MACK ETCHES HER NAME ON LSU’S ALL-AMERICAN LIST Brittany Mack (pictured above) was picked among the nation’s elite and became the 13th player in program history to garner Louisville Slugger/ NFCA All-America accolades. As a thrid-team selection, Mack joined Kristin Schmidt, Britni Sneed and Emily Turner on the prestigious list of Tiger hurlers to accomplish this feat. “Of all the players I’ve ever coached, Brittany being named an AllAmerican is one of the greatest achievements I’m most proud of,” head coach Yvette Girouard said. “She has worked extremely hard not only for herself but her team to overcome physical injuries as a freshman and a sophomore. I’m extremely happy for this particular woman because she’s has become a master of her mental game.” Mack, an All-SEC First-Team selection, claimed a 20-7 mark, a stout 1.74 ERA and amassed 209 strikeouts during her 184.2 innings of work to rank among the SEC’s Top Seven in those categories. She picked up two of the three victories during LSU’s sweep of No. 1 Alabama during the regular season. In the process, Mack doubled her career win and strikeout totals during the 2011 season. Mack also racked up a trio of SEC Pitcher of the Week awards in 2011 to join Schmidt and Sneed as the only LSU hurlers to earn the honor three times during the same season. The Round Rock, Texas, native enters her senior season 74 Ks away from Cody Trahan for fifth place on the program’s all-time list. In the process, Fico struck out the side three times en route to a memorable 18 strikeouts. However, the sophomore right-hander had her gem spoiled when Syracuse’s Lacey Kohl connected for a three-run homer to break a scoreless tie during the 11th inning. The 18 Ks were the second-highest single-game effort in program history only behind former three-time All-American Britni Sneed’s 19-strikeout performance against Oklahoma at the 2001 NCAA Women’s College World Series.

show,” head coach Yvette Girouard said. “I just wanted us to play well this weekend. That’s all any coach can ask of their team is to play well. I knew if we pitched well, we had a chance.” Young and Mack garnered SEC Player and Pitcher of the Week, respectively, for their performances. Young also picked up USA Softball National Player of the Week. She was the fourth player in program history to earn this prestigious honor and joined the elite company of former All-Americans Kristin Schmidt [March 4, 2004], Emily Turner [April 18, 2006 & May 1, 2007] and Kirsten Shortridge [March 26, 2010].

DEJA VU: YOUNG’S BLASTS LIFT LSU PAST NO. 1 BAMA LSU’s series with No. 1 Alabama was filled with everything: clutch walkoff home runs, gutty pitching performances and record crowds at Tiger Park. Friday’s opener set the tone and marked both the longest game in terms of innings (14) and time (4 hours, 31 minutes) during program history. Brittany Mack tossed all 14 innings and stranded 16 Alabama baserunners along the way. She worked her out of multiple bases loaded jams en route to a career-best 14 strikeouts and hurled an amazing 234 pitches. Anissa Young broke the 1-1 deadlock to lead off the 14th inning and ripped the sixth pitch of the sequence, a 2-2 offering, on a line to clear the right field fence. “It was a curveball that I just sat on and stayed through it,” Young said. “It means a lot to me. I just want to say congratulations to my teammates. We stayed positive and did a great job. It was an awesome feeling seeing both the fans along with my teammates jumping up and down. It will be something I will never forget.” If that wasn’t enough, Young provided another majestic blast in the 10th inning for a 3-1 victory during game two of the series. Again, Young went to right field for the memorable longball to send the program-record 2,563 fans into pandemonium. Rachele Fico went the distance and limited the explosive Alabama offense to one run on four hits. She also picked up 11 strikeouts “The little things have really paid off this weekend,” Fico said. “We have capitalized on all of our opportunities, and we’re staying so mentally focused and locked in. To play two extra inning games, it takes so much mental focus for every pitch. We’re all here to help each other out. Brittany Mack gave me some pointers from last night’s game that helped me do well in tonight’s game.” Mack returned to the circle for the series finale and fired a two-hit shutout to clinch the sweep. She recorded nine strikeouts and at one point sat down 14 straight batters. “Brittany Mack has finally matured. I have said before that she has all the potential to be an All-American pitcher and now it’s starting to

SANTOS TIES PROGRAM SINGLE-GAME HIT MARK Juliana Santos matched a program single-game record and notched an impressive 5-for-5 effort with three RBIs during LSU’s 10-1 victory over Arkansas on April 2. Santos joined Lauren Castle as the only players in program history to reach the impressive feat. Castle tallied her 5-for-5 effort during a 15-9 triumph over Mississippi State on March 31, 2005. “It’s awfully good to see Juliana swing the bat with a lot of confidence,” head coach Yvette Girouard said. “We always talk with the players about being a positive during an inning and doing anything you can to help your team be successful. She was the epitome of that today and got on-base a variety of different ways.”

HEYWARD PROVIDES INSTANT SPARK As a freshman, Simone Heyward started 53 of 58 games at centerfield for the Tigers. She garnered a team-leading .294 batting average on 45 hits primarly as the LSU leadoff hitter. Heyward crossed the plate to score a team-high 39 runs, drew a teambest 28 walks and added a team-leading 23 stolen bases. She went on to claim All-SEC Freshman and All-Louisiana Second-Team honors.

Salute: 2004 Women’s College World Series Team

2004 WCWS For Yvette Girouard and the LSU softball program, the second run to the Women’s College World Series was filled with as much joy, drama and excitement as the original. Like in 2001, the Tigers accomplished the SEC triple crown and claimed the SEC Western Division, Regular Season and Tournament championships. LSU also won a heart-stopping 13-inning affair and nearly pulled off an impossible feat at the WCWS. After starting the 2004 campaign with a 5-3 record, the Tigers strung together a 17-game winning streak that stretched into the heart of SEC action. LSU continued its climb up the polls sparked by a three-game sweep at No. 7 Alabama to end March. The Tigers rocketed up to a program-high and checked in at the No. 2 spot heading into postseason play. A trio of wins over Alabama, Auburn and Georgia, all ranked among the Top 15 at the time, allowed the Tigers to win their third SEC Tournament in five years. Unlike 2001, LSU’s quest to Oklahoma City didn’t start inside the friendly confines of Tiger Park. Instead, the Tigers were shipped to Waco, Texas for the NCAA Regionals. After wins over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and Seton Hall, LSU found itself down 3-0 to regional host Baylor after two innings. Camille Harris kickstarted a three-run third inning with a solo home run to left field. Three batters later, future All-American Leslie Klein belted a tworun triple down the right field line to even the score at 3-3. The Tigers exploded for a quartet of runs in the 10th inning. Stephanie Hill and Lauren Delahoussaye provided RBIs coupled with a Baylor error and wild pitch. The next day against Illinois, Julie Wiese jumpstarted LSU with a solo shot in the second inning followed by RBI hits from Delahoussaye in the third and fifth innings. That would be more than enough run support for two-time All-American Kristin Schmidt. She was touched up for only an unearned run on three hits to go along with nine strikeouts as the Tigers raced past the Fighting Illini 4-1 to return to the WCWS. Another Big 10 team, No. 6 Michigan, would bite the dust in LSU’s opening game in Oklahoma City. After 11 scoreless frames, the Wolverines took a 2-0 advantage to open the 12th inning. In the home half, the Tigers used an RBI-single by Leigh Ann Danos and a passed ball to knot the score at 2-2. LSU won the game in the 13th on a Harris infield single. After two throwing errors, Sara Fitzgerald crossed home for the game-winning run. In the circle, Schmidt fired all 13 innings and tallied 13 strikeouts. Following a 2-0 setback to No. 2 UCLA, rain altered the WCWS schedule. The Tigers were faced with the task of winning three games in one day to advance to the championship game. A Fitzgerald RBI-single in the fourth inning proved to be the game winner as LSU edged No. 4 Florida State 2-1 to start the day. Schmidt provided another 13 strikeouts and surrendered only one run on four hits. The Tigers fought off elimination for a second time and erased an early 1-0 deficit against No. 5 California. Klein opened the second inning with a solo home run, Harris followed with a two-out, two-run double in the third and Delahoussaye tacked on an insurance run with an RBI-double of her own during the sixth. Schmidt added eight strikeouts and pitched around trouble to close out the 4-1 victory for her third win of the WCWS. LSU was poised to finish out the hat trick and carried a 1-0 lead into the fifth inning. Seven outs away, the Golden Bears struck for a quartet of runs to take the win.

After her amazing performance, Kristin Schmidt was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 2004 Women’s College World Series.

“What more could you ask for from your team,” Girouard said after the game. “I told the team before we got off the bus this morning that we weren’t leaving the park until they turned out the lights on us tonight and we are doing just that. Unfortunately, we came up just a little short. “This team did everything my staff asked of them. They played with total heart. Kristin Schmidt pitched her heart out and this team never died. If I have ever coached a team that deserved to go to the national championship game, then it is certainly this group of girls.”

Yvette Girouard’s first season at LSU ended in storybook fashion as the Tigers racked up a school record 59 wins and qualified for the program’s first Women’s College World Series. LSU also completed the SEC triple crown for the first time en route to the SEC Western Division, Regular Season and Tournament championships. After splitting a doubleheader at No. 21 Louisiana-Lafayette on April 18, the Tigers reeled off 12 consecutive victories to climb up to No. 3 in the national rankings. Girouard refocused her team after a 7-3 setback at Auburn in the regular season finale and fired back with a 6-0 win over Auburn to open the SEC Tournament. Three days later, All-American Stephanie Hastings belted a solo home run that stayed just inside the left field foul pole to open the SEC Championship against No. 22 South Carolina. The first-inning blast coupled with a stellar effort from SEC Player of the Year Britni Sneed in the circle were more than enough to avenge a 1-0 setback to the Gamecocks from the season before. Sneed hurled a three-hitter to complete her undefeated SEC season and recorded a tournament-record 11 strikeouts against zero walks to secure the MVP honor and 1-0 triumph. LSU opened NCAA Regional action with victories over Cornell, Penn State and No. 9 Arizona State before facing No. 19 Louisiana-Lafayette in the finals. The Tigers broke through for a pair of runs in the third inning as Hastings and future All-American Trena Peel provided RBIs. An Alana Addison homer brought ULL within 2-1, but Sneed shut the door on the Cajuns retiring 12 of the final 15 batters highlighted by a strikeout of Heather Bertrand to vault LSU to the Women’s College World Series. Following a 2-1 hard-fought, extra inning loss to No. 4 Stanford, the Tigers bounced back behind a Julie Wiese two-run homer to dismiss No. 15 Iowa and set up an elimination tussle with No. 5 Oklahoma, the defending national champion. The teams battled deep into the night before LSU emerged with a gritty 2-1 triumph in the 13th inning. An errant throw off an Ashley Lewis ground ball allowed Jennifer Schuelke to cross the plate for the game winning run. Sneed willed her way to an impressive 18 strikeouts, a program singlegame record. She escaped multiple jams during extra innings, none more impressive than back-to-back Ks to get out of a bases loaded situation in the 10th. The game was viewed by 1.57 million fans, a softball record at the time according to NCAA Productions.

SEC Softball

The Southeastern Conference Setting the Standard for Intercollegiate Athletics in Softball

SEC Softball will celebrate its 16th year of existence in 2012 and has established itself as one of the leading conferences in the sport. The Southeastern Conference qualified seven teams for the 2011 NCAA Tournament - Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU and Tennessee. As the conference, the league also made its 20th overall, ninth consecutive year with at least one team in the Women’s College World Series. For the sixth time in the last seven years dating back to the 2005 season, the SEC advanced multiple teams to Oklahoma City. Both Alabama and Florida met in the semifinal round with the Gators advancing to their second overall championship series. Alabama won the 2011 conference title as they posted a 19-6 SEC mark. It was their second consecutive year winning the hardware and third title in school history. The Tide posted a 45-7 overall record and Kelsi Dunne earned SEC Pitcher of the Year honors for the second year in a row. Florida’s Kelsey Bruder was named SEC Player of the Year while Tennessee’s Ellen Renfroe earned Freshman of the Year accolades. Kentucky’s Meagan Aull was selected as Scholar-Athlete of the Year while Co-Coach of the Year honors went to Yvette Girouard (LSU) and Tim Walton (Florida). Softball came under the auspices of the Southeastern Conference in the 1996-97 season. Since that time, 10 different conference teams have made appearances in the NCAA Championship, including six teams earning Women’s College World Series berths - one by South Carolina in the inaugural season, Alabama in 2000, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2011, Florida in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 Georgia in 2009 and 2010, LSU in 2001 and 2004 and Tennessee in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2010. Eight teams (Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Tennessee) have made Top 25 appearances and six teams have climbed into the Top 10 (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, South Carolina and Tennessee) of the NFCA/USA Today Poll. At least one SEC team has been ranked in the poll each week since the inception of SEC Softball. South Carolina is the flagship team of the league with a rich history in softball dating back 35 seasons. The Gamecocks have made 15 NCAA Regional and three Women’s College World Series appearances. Mississippi State played softball for five seasons during the 1980’s before resuming the sport when it was added to the SEC. Tennessee added softball in 1995-96, one year before its inception in the SEC. Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU and Ole Miss began softball programs in 1996-97 to give the league 11 representatives (Vanderbilt does not sponsor softball). The 1999 season was the first in which the conference was eligible for an automatic berth to the NCAA Championships. As the sport continues to grow in competitiveness and popularity, the SEC has had six different regular season champions and five different conference tournament champions. LSU leads the way with five regular season crowns, five tournament titles and eight division championships.

LSU Chancellor

LSU

Dr. Michael V. Martin Chancellor, LSU

Dr. Michael V. Martin assumed the chancellorship of Louisiana State University and A&M College on August 1, 2008. Prior to his appointment as LSU’s eighth chancellor, Dr. Martin established a distinguished career in higher education, serving most recently as president of New Mexico State University. Before arriving at NMSU in 2004, Dr. Martin served for six years as vice president for agriculture and natural resources at the University of Florida, leading the university’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. He was elevated to senior vice president of the University of Florida shortly before being selected as NMSU’s president. Previously, he was vice president for agricultural policy and the dean of the College of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Sciences at the University of Minnesota. He began his academic career at Oregon State University as a faculty member in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics. An academic leader dedicated to the land-grant mission, Dr. Martin is recognized as a strong voice for higher education. In 2007, he received the Justin Smith Morrill Memorial Award, named after the author of the bill creating land-grant universities, which honors outstanding service on behalf of the land-grant mission. Only six individuals have been designated to receive this award since it was first given in 1980. For his leadership in improving the quality of life for New Mexico citizens and future generations, he was awarded the 2008 Distinguished Leadership Award by Leadership New Mexico. Other recent awards include his recognition as a powerbroker by The New Mexico Business Weekly in 2006, being named Outstanding Alumnus of Minnesota State University Mankato in 2006, and receiving the NMSU Social Justice Award in 2005. Dr. Martin is involved in a wide array of professional and community organizations and activities. An active scholar, Dr. Martin has authored numerous book chapters and articles for academic journals, trade publications, and the popular press and recently published pieces for The Chronicle of Higher Education and University Business. Some of his philosophy is summed up in the following quote: “It is the tradition of land-grant universities to be nontraditional,” written as part of a 2001 article titled “The LandGrant University in the 21st Century,” published in the Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics. He traced the history of the

land-grant movement from the mid-1800s and concluded that “the fundamental land-grant principles of accessibility, practical as well as classical education, research and discovery in the public interest, and connectedness to all the people remain powerful and profound.” A native of Crosby, Minn., Dr. Martin earned a bachelor’s degree in business and economics and a master’s degree in economics at Mankato State College (Minnesota State University) in Minnesota. He received his Ph.D. in applied economics from the University of Minnesota in 1977. Dr. Martin and his wife, Jan, have two children, both adopted from South Korea. Amanda, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, is a graphic artist in Saint Paul, Minn.

Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics

Joe Alleva LSU Vice Chancellor/Director of Athletics Joe Alleva continues to bring unprecedented national recognition to LSU as Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics. Under Alleva’s leadership, LSU enjoys one of the country’s premier athletics programs with success on and off the field of competition. Now in his fourth season at LSU, Alleva is dedicated to athletic and academic excellence, and is committed to providing the opportunities and the resources necessary for student-athletes to excel in competition, in the classroom and in the community. Alleva joined the LSU family on April 4, 2008 after a highly successful tenure as director of athletics at Duke University for 10 years. Alleva’s role at LSU was further expanded in August of 2009 when vice chancellor was added to his title by the LSU Board of Supervisors. It is the first time in school history that the director of athletics has also held a vice chancellor position. Alleva was recently appointed to a five-year term on the prestigious NCAA Men’s Basketball Committee, reinforcing his position as one of the most respected athletic administrators in the country. Upon his arrival at LSU, Alleva unveiled a strategic master plan for the LSU athletics program -- “LSU: Thru and True” -- to ensure the advancement and future of LSU Athletics as an exemplary program. The central mission of the plan is to create an environment for student-athletes to reach their ultimate potential, prepare them to be champions in life and to set out goals and values for the entire athletics program. Alleva’s vision for LSU athletics facilities includes plans to enhance the appearance of Tiger Stadium and transform the North Stadium Drive corridor into a showplace for the university. Under his direction, LSU’s world-renowned track and field program received a state-of the-art running surface last year when a new track was installed in Bernie Moore Stadium. Extensive renovations to the Tiger soccer facility will be completed this fall, and future plans include a new gymnastics practice facility, a tennis complex, and renovations to the Maravich Center and field house. Alleva directed a major renovation to the University Club golf course that was completed in September 2010 and allows the LSU men’s and women’s golf teams to compete on one of the most challenging courses in the country. The renovated course helped prepare Tiger golfers John Peterson and Austin Ernst, respectively, to win 2011 NCAA men’s and women’s individual championships, marking the first time both titles were claimed by players from the same school. The Lady Tiger golfers were third in the final team standings, marking the highest finish in LSU history. LSU Athletics completed another highly successful year in 2010-11, highlighted by a Fighting Tiger football squad that posted an 11-2 mark – including a Cotton Bowl victory – and finished the season ranked No. 8 in the nation. The 2010-11 athletic year also featured Top 5 national finishes both indoors and outdoors by the men’s and women’s track and field teams.

In 2008-09, all 20 LSU sports competed in NCAA postseason play for the first time in school history and the Tiger baseball team won the national championship. This past year LSU ranked second among Southeastern Conference teams in the Learfield Director’s Cup All-Sports standings and finished in the Top 20 for the sixth year in a row. Alleva ensures that the Cox Communications Academic Center for Student-Athletes is a first-class facility that provides student-athletes the resources necessary for success in the classroom and personal development. The facility was recently enhanced by the addition of a media training center that gives student-athletes valuable assistance in improving their communications skills. And with a strong emphasis on community service and outreach programs, the implementation under Alleva’s direction of the “Geaux Givers” program fosters a relationship between the local community and LSU student-athletes, who regularly participate in philanthropic events. In addition, Alleva has bolstered the department’s L-Club program to reach out and connect with former student-athletes. Alleva oversees a staff of outstanding coaches and he made two critical additions to LSU’s coaching staff in the off-season. He lured the dynamic Nikki Caldwell to LSU to coach the Lady Tiger basketball team and then hired Beth Torina to direct the Tiger softball program, bringing a new wealth of knowledge and passion to the LSU women’s sports program. Alleva is an innovator with bold ideas that benefit not only LSU but all of Greater Baton Rouge. He has been instrumental in the planning of the Bayou Country Superfest,

REVIEW

a two-day country music concert and festival held in Tiger Stadium each spring. The event attracts nearly 100,000 visitors to the LSU campus and makes a tremendous economic impact upon the local community. Alleva has served on numerous national committees throughout his career including the Football Bowl Certification Committee, the NCAA Division I Championships/ Competition Cabinet and several Southeastern Conference and Atlantic Coast Conference committees. He became director of athletics at Duke in 1998 and his impressive tenure there propelled the university into the ranks of America’s top all-around collegiate programs. Among his outstanding list of accomplishments includes the greatest 10-year period in Duke Athletics, winning more ACC and NCAA championships than in any other decade in school history. Alleva, whose hometown is Suffern, N.Y., majored in Finance at Lehigh University and received his bachelor’s degree in 1975. While at Lehigh, Alleva was the quarterback of the football team and team captain in 1974. Alleva also played on the Lehigh baseball team. He served as a graduate assistant football coach and earned an MBA in 1976. While at Duke, Alleva played a key role in Durham’s community sports scene. He started Little League Baseball in Durham over 20 years ago, and also began the American Legion baseball program. He is a member of the North Carolina American Legion Hall of Fame, Suffern High School Hall of Fame and the Rockland County Hall of Fame. Alleva and his wife, Annie, have three children, J.D., Jeff, and Jenny.

In a time when subsidies for college athletics across the country are reaching an all-time high, a report published by USA Today in January 2010 indicated that LSU and Nebraska are the only two athletic departments in the nation that receive no subsidies.

LSU became the first school in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s individual NCAA Golf Championships in the same year when John Peterson and Austin Ernst did so in 2011. Ernst and Peterson became the first LSU players in 70 years to win titles.
