2010 Season Preview

Lady Demons’ depth designated to play significant role in 2010 Options and consistency - those words come up again and again when talking with second-year coach Donald Pickett about how he is redesigning the NSU Lady Demon softball program. “We have a much more competitive situation because we have so many options. We have a chance to be pretty good this year, and it comes down to how consistent we can be and how we weather the ups and downs, with such a young team,” he says. No question, this is a complete makeover for a program that has been among the best in the Southland Conference in years past, and has a sense of urgency about regaining that status. There are eight freshmen on the 2010 NSU roster. Another seven newcomers will arrive for the 2011 season. It’s the most comprehensive squad shift at Northwestern since iconic Demon basketball coach Mike McConathy went with 12 freshmen, including all five starters, in the 2002-03 basketball season. That worked out – producing two Southland Conference championships, record attendance, NCAA Tournament success and a tsunami of national attention for Northwestern that continues to resonate even today. The Lady Demons have some proud veteran players determined to leave their mark as part of a similar turnaround. Seniors Ainsley Pellerin, Stormi Stech and Randi Stuard will be the cornerstones of the 2010 NSU team, both with their performance and their leadership, says Pickett. The depth of the 18-member roster is the asset which most pleases Pickett. “The lineup could change every day. Last year our lineup was set because we didn’t have depth,” he says. “We have quite a lot of options this year. The strong point of our team is that we don’t have just 2-3 players head-and-shoulders above the rest. We have a deep team and everybody on the roster will contribute to some Senior second baseman Ainsley Pellerin degree. Because of how young we are, the challenge is to become consistent, to make the adjustment to Division I competition and be productive at every opportunity. “Every kid on the team this year has a chance to be in that lineup each and every day. We want them to push each other and that is happening. There’s not a lot of dropoff from one kid to the next. It’s all about who can become the most consistent ones, and they will be the players with the most starts, the most at-bats, and the most production. But everybody will make a difference for us.” Another major change for the Lady Demons from last year to 2010 is a more manageable schedule, the first one drawn up by Pickett at NSU. “We tried to build a schedule that helps develop our program. We’ve got to bring our A-game every day to have a chance to win, but we aren’t playing uphill nearly as much this year,” he said. “The Florida series is a huge challenge, but you want to expose this team, mostly young players, to college softball at the highest level so that when we get there in postseason play, or next season, it’s not a new experience. “If we start well, this team can get some good things accomplished. Coming off the Florida trip we play McNeese and Stephen F. Austin, no doubt two of the top teams in the conference. If we can get through that stretch in good shape, we’ll boost our chances of making the Southland Conference Tournament, and once you get there, anything can happen. That’s been shown in our league. We’ve got a team that will get better week by week and should be much stronger at tournament time.” Pickett believed NSU would be much improved this season based on the influx of new players, and fall ball proved him right. “We saw in the fall that we’re better and we’re moving in the right direction, but we’re not back to where Lady Demon softball has been. We have opportunities to win quite a few more games than we did last year. The main thing is to continue to improve our talent level through the hard work of the players here, and through recruiting. Get good players here, and get them playing better than ever. “With this team, I really believe we can compete for a championship as early as this year, if things go just right, but realistically, it could take three years to be that good. It doesn’t often happen overnight. I don’t want to put a timetable on it – we’re hopeful of winning now,” he says.

Pickett offers pinpoint notes on each of his players: Sally Blackwell - A really good athlete and has to fine tune her softball skills. She needs to learn the game at this level. She’ll be fine defensively and she loves to compete, loves to play. She’s some body we’re counting on up the middle and she will be getting more time as she becomes consistently productive at the plate. Brooke Boening – She is a different style of pitcher who hits her spots really well and has a good feel for setting up hitters. She’s a competitor. She had a great fall and she will pitch quite a bit early. She’s not going to strike out 8-10 a game, but she sets up hitters well and we just need to make plays behind her.

2010 Season Preview Alyssa Breshears – Our speed Demon. Her role will center on pinch-running because of her good speed. An attribute we lacked a year ago.

Kayla Cole – She will be a run producer for us. She brings a big bat to the lineup and has a strong arm behind the plate. Has a chance to be an all-conference player. Great to have her paired with Leslie Johnson, sharing the burden of catching and when she’s not behind the plate, she’ll be a DP. Tay Edmonds – Tay has made considerable improvement. Stayed here over the summer, got stronger, worked hard. Loves playing and has a great attitude. Has a chance to earn a position. Ashlee England – She brings speed and has a great arm. She breaks on the ball really well and tracks it as well as any OF we have. She’s coming along offensively and she has a high ceiling. She’ll be in the lineup early and learning as she goes. Jessica English - Jessica has the best stuff on the pitching staff. She needs to gain confidence and consistency, and she could do a lot of good for us. She can be a dominant pitcher. She’s the youngest player on the team, and it’s her first year away from home, so it’s a tough adjustment. When she clears the mental toughness hurdle, look out. Kelee Grimes – We have five pitchers and it will be a true pitching staff instead of her shouldering the load. She stayed over the summer and worked on her strength. She’s shown a lot of improvement . This year she’ll be put in better positions out there and she’ll be successful. She has good stuff and we think she’ll do really well. Kelee handled last year as well as you could hope, and now she’s embracing having a staff. She doesn’t get rattled. Kaitlin Holloway - We are hoping she can be our closer. She has the mindset and just needs to become consistent at hitting her spots. When she does, we’ll be Senior outfielder Randi Stuard very confident going to her with the game on the line as our closer. Leslie Johnson – Solid, solid player. The kind of person you want behind the plate helping run the defense. She gives us a good building block and will combine with Kayla to handle the catcher position. Ashleigh Kuhn - A great player. Will be at third for us. She can play some middle infield too. She competes, 110 percent all the time, will get a lot of power for us, hit for extra bases. You like having her on your team. Taylor McLoughlin – Taylor brings a lot of speed. She has a chance to play when she becomes more consistent offensively. When she puts the ball in play she can make things happen with her speed. Hoping she can earn one of those OF spots. Ainsley Pellerin – A leader by example. She doesn’t say a lot but she works hard, puts in extra time, does everything the right way. If she can be consistent offensively we will be very pleased. Samantha Roberts – We’re expecting a lot out of Sam. She had some shoulder issues that restricted her, especially defensively, last year. She’ll be at first base and in the middle of our lineup. She got more comfortable and confident late in the season and we believe she’ll produce runs and pick up where she left off in the last month of the season. Kylie Roos - Part of our young pitching staff. Had a good fall. Will be hitting too. Big bat. As a freshman, she’s dealing with the first-year challenge of being consistent and matching up against Division I talent day after day. She’ll do a lot of good things here in this program. Stormi Stech - One of the most competitive kids we have, does everything we ask. Our vocal leader. Can play a lot of positions. She’ll take charge and say what needs to be said. She can plug in anywhere on the field, she’s so versatile. Randi Stuard – Randi is playing a new position (OF) and will play middle infield a lot. She will lead off and hopefully set the tone for our offense by getting on base and if she does that we can score a lot. Tiffany Ward – Moving her to OF. She’s getting comfortable with it. She has all the tools you want in a player, a definite all-conference caliber player if she puts it together, and can be one of our best offensive weapons. We need her to produce a lot of runs. Senior shortstop Stormi Stech www.nsudemons.com

Donald

and Chattanooga State Community College. At Chattanooga State, Pickett was part of a staff that coached the team to three top-five finishes in the junior college softball world series along with three regional and conference championships. He also has coached the Austin (Tenn.) Eagles American Softball Association summer team to four national tournament appearances and two top-five finishes in the ASA nationals. Pickett learned about the Northwestern coaching post from Pat Murphy, the coach of College World Series participant Alabama, who was among several nationally-prominent coaches during the summer 2008 search for a new Lady Demons head coach. “Starting with his high level of character and integrity, Donald Pickett has an amazing reputation in the collegiate softball world. He will serve as a good role model for our student-athletes while also providing them with the motivation and coaching needed to return Northwestern State to the point of challenging for Southland Conference titles and

PICKETT

Head Coach

2nd Season at NSU (5-45) 2nd Season Overall (5-45) Tennessee-Chattanooga (‘05)

Don't mistake Donald Pickett's country twang for a laid-back personality. The Lady Demon softball coach is certainly easy to get to know, and he's never going to be described as fast-talking unless an umpire is involved. But he is driven. He has big ambitions. He has a plan in motion to quickly restore Northwestern State softball to prominence and championship-level success. He knows what it takes. He hired assistant coaches who have been there, too. Their approach took root last season and especially in recruiting, where their efforts have resulted in an influx of talent with newcomers in 2010 and already lined up for 2011. The plan is in action. Facility improvements are tangible. A solid approach to coaching, teaching and managing the program is clear to see. To see where Pickett plans to take NSU, you need only see where he's already been as an assistant coach. Pickett helped TennesseeChattanooga to three NCAA Tournament appearances and the brink of a Women's College World Series berth while on the Mocs' staff. The 32-year-old Pickett begins his 13th season of collegiate coaching experience. He spent two years helping establish a brand-new program at Memphis after working in a pair of highly successful programs at UT-Chattanooga Coach Donald Pickett with his wife Paige and daughter Ainsley. www.nsudemons.com

Lady Demon Coaching Staff recruiter whose expertise coaching hitting and defense is recognized nationally. Coaching and administrative colleagues of Pickett's were effusive in their praise. “Donald is ready to be a head coach,” said Thees. “His softball knowledge is incredible and he does a great job of getting to know his players and recruits.” Said Lynn Parkes, the senior woman administrator at Memphis: “Donald Pickett is a man of character and integrity. He loves the game of softball and loves working with young people. I think he will do a fantastic job.” In Pickett's first season as assistant coach at his alma mater, the 2001 Lady Mocs opened the season with backto-back no-hitters and knocked off top-25 teams in Ohio State and Baylor, rolling to a 44-15 record while never dropping more than two games in a row. The Lady Mocs posted two upset wins over top-seeded and No. 12 ranked Florida Atlantic in the NCAA Regionals. UTC then just missed capturing a berth in the World Series after narrow losses to Georgia Tech and Florida State. “There may not be a better fundamental coach out there,” said UTC's Reed. “He is a good person, the type of person your family would like to be associated with, and he is perhaps one of the most 'up and coming' young coaches out there right now.” A strong reference came from an in-state rival of UTC's, head coach Torey Acheson at Tennessee Tech. “At Tennessee-Chattanooga, those players all became better under him......technically, his knowledge base is really good....he is an upstanding human being; he was raised right.” Said Laura Mincy, assistant athletic director and SWA at UTC: “Donald is very determined and passionate about college softball. He's a gem.” That's what he says - the gem part, anyway -- about his wife, Paige, and their year-old baby girl, Ainsley Elizabeth, born Friday, Jan. 9, 2009 in Natchitoches.

NCAA postseason berths,” said NSU director of athletics Greg Burke, announcing Pickett's hiring. Working for five seasons under coach Frank Reed at UTC, Pickett helped the Mocs advance within one win of the World Series. The Mocs had an overall 210-126 record while picking up three Southern Conference championships before Pickett joined coach Wendy Thees at Memphis following the first year of softball for the Tigers. Also serving as assistant to Reed at Chattanooga State CC for three seasons, Pickett helped post a 151-27 record, including a 62-3 mark in 2001. A year earlier, Pickett was part of the National Fastpitch Coaching Staff of the Year, and in 2002, Pickett was among the Chattanooga State team that was inducted into the Chattanooga Sports Hall of Fame. A 2005 UTC graduate, Pickett is regarded as an excellent Great Tradition • Brighter Future

Caitlin Noble

           Team captain of the 2008 University of Washington softball team and one of the great pitchers in the storied history of the Huskies' program, Caitlin Noble is in her second season as the pitching coach for the Lady Demons. Noble finished her playing career with the fourth-most strikeouts in UW history (757) in 616.2 innings pitched. Noble ranked 35th on the all-time NCAA Division I strikeouts list with 9.1 strikeouts per seven innings. She fired two no-hitters, getting the first one as a freshman with a 4-0 win over Kansas on Feb. 26, 2005. Her second came in her junior season against another of the nation's top programs, as Noble threw a no-no against 8th-ranked Texas on March 18, 2007. That was not her most notable career win. That came in her freshman year, when she defeated No. 1-ranked Michigan on May 28, 2005 in the NCAA Super Regionals. That combined with a Pac 10 Conference regular-season triumph over eventual national champion UCLA and made her the only pitcher in the nation at season's end to have beaten both teams in the national championship game. Noble was the No. 2 pitcher on Washington's 2007 team that finished 3rd at the Women's College World Series, going 11-5 that season. She had at least 11 wins all four years, with a career-high 15 wins and 7 shutouts as a freshman. Noble was a three-time All-Academic Pac 10 selection, earning first-team honors as a senior and second-team recognition as a sophomore and junior. She made the EPSN The Magazine CoSIDA All-District Academic Team and appeared on the Academic All-America ballot in 2007 and 2008. Those seasons, she was also the winner of the Huskies' Most Inspirational Award. In 2008, she won the prestigious 101 Club Scholar-Athlete Award at UW. She had 19 career shutouts and an overall 51-31 record with a 2.32 ERA in 130 career appearances, 97 starts. She pitched 54 complete games. Opposing batters hit just .217 against Noble. As a freshman in 2005, she set the school record with 16 strikeouts in a six-inning win over Williamette. Noble became only the third freshman at UW ever to throw a no-hitter in the win over Kansas. A native of Sammamish, Wash., Noble played at Eastlake High School. At UW, she graduated with honors in history, posting a 3.46 grade point average. Born May 9, 1986, she is the daughter of John and Susan Noble, and has two sisters, Hayley Huson (27) and Lindsay Caranna (30), and a niece, Reese Caranna (3).

What began as a small gathering of college administrators over 45 years ago, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 12 member universities in three states. Beginning with a historic meeting of five institutions in Dallas on March 15, 1963, that included current members Lamar University (then Lamar State College of Technology) and the University of Texas at Arlington (then Arlington State College), the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into its fifth decade of existence. On July 1, 2006, the Southland Conference commemorated another milestone as the league membership reached 12, marking the largest configuration ever for the organization. The addition of the University of Central Arkansas and Texas A&MCorpus Christi expands the Southland into the Little Rock metro area and into the eighth largest city in Texas. UCA and A&MCorpus Christi has enhanced the Southland Conference in innumerable ways, including athletic and academic successes, strong and principled leadership, and strong fan support and media coverage. In addition to its two newest members, the Southland Conference lineup also consists of Lamar University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, Sam Houston State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Stephen F. Austin State University, the University of Texas at Arlington, the University of Texas at San Antonio, and Texas State University-San Marcos. The Southland sponsors 17 championship sports, all at the NCAA Division I level. The eight men’s sports include football, basketball, baseball, golf, tennis, cross country, and indoor and outdoor track and field. The women compete for nine championships in basketball, volleyball, softball, soccer, golf, tennis, cross country, and indoor and outdoor track and field. The Conference earns automatic qualification to NCAA championships in football, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball, men’s golf, men’s and women’s tennis, women’s soccer, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, and men’s and women’s cross country.

In 1976, Webb moved to Southeastern Louisiana University where he served as director of institutional research and EEO officer from 1976 until 1983 and as registrar and a part-time faculty member in mathematics from 1983 until 1989. Webb returned to NSU in 1989 as dean of Instruction and Graduate Studies and professor of mathematics.

Webb chaired the Steering Committee for Northwestern's Self-Study for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Webb led the effort to locate both Boys and Girls State on the Natchitoches campus of Northwestern. These activities have benefited the University and the community and have generated increased interest in Northwestern among the student leaders who participate. He has also been active in the community as a member of the board of directors of the Natchitoches Chamber of Commerce. Webb was a member of the Association for the Preservation of Historic Natchitoches, the Natchitoches Historic Foundation, and the Natchitoches-Northwestern Symphony Society. Webb and his wife Brenda have two daughters, both honor graduates of Northwestern. Tamara and her husband, former Demon All-American pitcher Reggie Gatewood, are the parents of two children: Tyler and Ava. Lauren is married to former Demon baseball player Nick Simokatis, and they have two sons: Nicholas and Benjamin.

Dr. Randall J. Webb Northwestern State President Dr. Randall J. Webb never misses a chance to tell people about the good things happening at Northwestern State University. And Webb has been responsible to many of those accomplishments. Webb became NSU's 17th president in July 1996 and is the second-longest serving president in the university's 125-year history. During Webb's tenure, enrollment exceeded 10,000 students for the first time, peaking at 10,505 students in the fall of 2004. The university also set records for total graduates in an academic year. With the implementation of selective admissions in the fall of 2005, the academic preparation of freshmen students has increased considerably. Overall enrollment initially decreased after the implementation of selective admissions, but has begun to increase again. Northwestern has improved its academic programs while attracting better-prepared students. The average ACT score of students has risen under Webb's tenure, and student leaders are choosing NSU in large numbers. The university has dramatically increased the number of high school valedictorians and salutatorians among first-time freshmen. While Webb has been president, Northwestern has increased the level of active external grant and contract funding from federal, state and private sources to approximately $20,000,000 annually. The university raised more than $34 million from alumni, friends, supporters, and private industry in its first-ever capital campaign, which exceeded its $18.84 million goal by more than $15 million. A new capital campaign, in honor of Northwestern's 125th anniversary, is now underway. The university has received donations or pledges for its first three $1 million endowed chairs. Northwestern also has 34 endowed professorships worth $100,000 each. NSU has also moved boldly to deliver instruction to students wherever they are. Under Webb, the university has become a state and regional leader in bringing classes to students by compressed video and the Internet. The university offers over twenty degree programs via the Internet and is looking to add more programs in the future. More than half of the students at Northwestern take an electronic class. Under Webb, the university has modernized and improved its facilities. A $6.9 million Wellness, Recreation, and Activity Center was completed in the center of the campus on the site of the old Intramural Building. Projects to renovate Morrison Hall, the Family and Consumer Sciences Building and Williamson Hall were also completed. West Caspari Hall was demolished and funding has been received to reconstruct West Caspari as a three-story, one-stop center for student services. Plans call for renovating East Caspari Hall in the future.

University Administration DEMONS’ DECADE OF EXCELLENCE

Jerry Pierce Vice President/External Affairs Jerry Pierce is the Cal Ripken of the Northwestern State athletic program. Day after day, year after year, Pierce is in the lineup, fielding his position with aplomb, and delivering at the plate, knocking a ball out of the park from time to time but always taking an understated profile, seeing himself as a role player. Beginning his 45th year on the university's staff, Pierce's impact on NSU and the city of Natchitoches can't be measured as easily as Ripkin's Baseball Hall of Fame statistics, but they are equally indelible. He begins his 20th year as vice president of external affairs at Northwestern. A significant aspect of his job is oversight of intercollegiate athletics. Pierce works closely with athletic director Greg Burke and all NSU coaches and staff members to keep Northwestern athletics competing at a championship level week after week, month after month and year after year. Pierce is an avid tennis player who has been a member of NSU Athletic Council USTA teams that have won more than a dozen state championships, five regional titles and one national championship. John Ackel Well before moving into the executive position, Pierce had Jody Biscoe (chair) already served his alma mater, adopted hometown and state with Don Barker distinction. In his role as vice president, he oversees university Dusty Dischler (student) operations in athletics, alumni and development, public and media Kelee Grimes (student) relations and assists President Dr. Randall J.

Kristi Simms A 1961 graduate of Northwestern, Pierce served as trainer for Cathy Sutton the Demon football team during his college years, working closely Dr. Sonia Tinsley with legendary coach Jack Clayton. After earning his journalism Krist Swinburghe degree, Pierce went to work for the New Orleans Times Picayune, Jennifer Videtto serving as a reporter and editor. He was named executive sports Ex-Officio M e m b e r s editor at the age of 24. In 1965, he chose to raise his two sons in Natchitoches and Greg Burke returned to NSU as sports information director. He was promoted Donnie Cox to news bureau director two years later and assumed additional Dustin Eubanks responsibilities in athletics, alumni affairs and other areas through Jodie Heinicka the years. Dr. Patrice Moulton Dr. Vicki Parrish He founded, in 1972, the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame facility Jerry Pierce in Prather Coliseum on the NSU campus, providing a home for an entity created in 1958. He established annual induction activities that remain in place nearly four decades later, and served as director of the Hall for 19 years until his promotion to vice president forced him to step aside from the volunteer post. He helped guide Northwestern into three athletic conferences (Trans America, 1979; Gulf Star, 1983; Southland, 1987) and NCAA Division I status in 1977. He is a past president of the Southland and has served the conference through other offices and committee positions. In 1994, he was named one of Louisiana's 20 most influential sports figures by the TimesPicayune. Also on the list were New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson, LSU athletic director Joe Dean and basketball coach Dale Brown, and Grambling football coaching legend Eddie Robinson. His salesmanship and managerial skills were instrumental in convincing Tri-Star Productions to film the 1989 smash hit movie Steel Magnolias, with an all-star cast including Julia Roberts, Sally Field and Dylan McDermott in Natchitoches and on the NSU campus. The movie's impact on tourism in Natchitoches continues to resonate more than a decade later. Pierce is regarded as one of the most effective legislative liaisons for Louisiana's higher education system. He is also a popular after dinner speaker and master of ceremonies who has spoken at hundreds of events since 1965. In addition to his administrative responsibilities, Pierce is a member of the Journalism Department faculty. He is the author of one book and editor of two others and has written thousands of editorials, columns, features and other articles for newspapers and magazines. Pierce and his wife Regina, a teacher, live on Cane River Lake in Natchitoches. He has two sons, Randy and Rick, both NSU graduates; and three grandchildren, twins Evan and Amanda, 20, and Miranda, 9, and two stepchildren, Nicholas and Natalie. Great Tradition • Brighter Future

High School. Two Burke coaching hires had Northwestern in NCAA Tournament play in their second seasons and have been back to postseason since. Basketball coach Mike McConathy was hired in 1999 after 16 seasons as a junior college head coach. In his 10 years, the Demons have reached the conference tournament championship game six times, winning twice to make the school's first two NCAA Tournament appearances. Most memorable was the stunning last second win over Big Ten champion Iowa in the first round of the 2006 tournament. That same year, Burke also broke new ground by generating private backing for the first long-term guaranteed coaching contract in school history for McConathy. Women's soccer coach Jimmy Mitchell has taken three teams to the NCAA playoffs, making NSU the only Louisiana university to have multiple appearances. Dramatic facility enhancements have occurred in his eight seasons and Mitchell has been rewarded with a multi-year contract. Burke also picked head coaches who have subsequently been hired by Florida, Missouri, Kentucky, Mississippi State and Wichita State. He recently landed LSU co-defensive coordinator Bradley Dale Peveto to be the Demons' new football coach. Peveto and his staff promptly signed a 2009 recruiting class ranked No. 1 nationally in the Football Championship Subdivision by Rivals.com recruiting analysts. From his first day on the job, Burke has stressed the importance of having a balanced athletic program. To that end, tremendous competitive strides have been made in women's athletics under his guidance. The NSU soccer program was the first one in Louisiana ever to reach the NCAA Tournament. Softball has made three NCAA Tournament appearances. Volleyball has set attendance records and made its best-ever showings in conference play in each of the past four years. While on-field success by Demon and Lady Demon teams has been a source of pride for NSU supporters, Burke is equally proud of the tone which has been set Greg Burke with wife Susu and daughter Catherine. within the NSU athletic program as it relates to academic success.

Dr. William Broussard Executive Director - NSU Athletic Association Associate AD for External Relations One of the most accomplished student-athletes ever at Northwestern State, two-time football All-America center William Broussard returned to his alma mater in February 2007 as the Director of External Relations, coordinating fundraising activities through the Athletic Association and Demon Victory Fund.

After re-branding the annual fund campaign the Demon Victory Fund (DVF) in 2007, the DVF enjoyed its most successful year up to that point. The 2008-09 DVF, with the assistance of a newly re-organized Board of Directors, once again broke the annual record for total revenues, number of Athletic Association members, and Select 100 Members on the way to establishing a new benchmark for annual, unrestricted support of the NSU Athletic Department. Under Broussard’s guidance, the NSU Athletic Association has set three consecutive annual total attainment records, secured the largest scholarship endowment and largest planned gift in the history of NSU Athletics. In the 2007-08 year, the NSU Athletic Association established or tied several annual records under Broussard’s guidance, including annual records for total operating revenues, gift-in-kind donations, number of commitments to the Endowed Scholarship Program (8), and an annual record for corporate sales and corporate licensing revenues generated by Athletic Association colleague Ryan Holloway.

Under legendary coach Yvette Girouard, Castle compiled a long list of accolades, including being on the 2006 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year Watch List as she served as the Lady Tigers' team captain.

A Decade Later, The 2000 Championship Lady Demons The 2000 Lady Demons

Laura Davis, SS Christina Edgar, SS Jamie Frasier, C Jada Garcia, OF Jessica Holaway, P Brandy Kenney, 3B/C Leslie Landry, OF Cindy Leggett, P Erin Mancuso, OF/1B Winter Militello, OF Lauren Miller, 2B Amanda Ortego, P Erin Palomarez, 1B Shannon Straty, C Jana Strickland, 2B/3B Linette Stuart, OF Tracye Thompson, 2B Lofty expectations preceded the 2000 season for the Northwestern State Lady Demon soft- Amber Welker, OF/P ball team, and it exceeded those expectations with a Southland Conference championship for the third straight year. NSU became the first school since Louisiana-Lafayette in 198487 to win three straight Southland championships in softball. On the way to posting a 41-17 record and wrapping up the regular season SLC championship, the Lady Demons downed three Top 25 teams during the season and had four one-run defeats to ranked foes. The Lady Demons set school records for home runs (38), doubles (88), total bases (705), stolen bases (103), runs scored (281), hits (477), and batting average (.309) among an onslaught in which 17 NSU records were erased. They handled pressure admirably. With a half-game edge over Texas-San Antonio in the SLC standings with three weeks left, Northwestern won its final eight conference games, five by one run with two of those going 10 innings on the road in the final regular-season weekend. Amber Welker (.357, 24 RBI, 19 steals) who along with Linette Stuart (.325, 32 steals) broke the then single-season school record for hits (66), and was the only first-team All-SLC selection. Right-handed pitcher Jessica Holaway (16-7, 1.31 ERA, 184 strikeouts) won “Freshman of the Year” honors and Gay McNutt took “Coach of the Year” for the third straight season.
