ARLINGTON, Texas – The UT Arlington Athletic Alumni Chapter hosted its final reunion for the 2013-2014 academic year on a stormy Sunday at Allan Saxe Field.
The inclement weather didn’t deter 14 of our softball alumni from attending the day. Alumni represented the entirety of the softball program’s existence, with members from the inaugural 1974 season to the most recent 2013 graduate.
Attendees braved the weather by sharing memories and stories about their playing days, former coaches and teammates, and discussing the changes at Allan Saxe Field as they hovered under umbrellas. After learning Sunday's game was cancelled due to rain, alumni gathered with the team at Grease Monkey Burger Shop for lunch, more reminiscing, and pictures with the current team.
Alums attending included Tracy Jones, Ida Gandee, Cynthia Zea, Stephanie Owens, Tara Brennan-Ritter, Lisa Swan, Natalie Mullin, Cindy Spradling, Tami Busby, Sandy Tidwell, Kate Hermann, Brenda Woodard, Teri Lyles and Angela Perry.
"The success of all our sport reunions this year has been a crucial step toward the future of our Athletic Alumni Association," said Kris Wood, Athletics Development Coordinator for Alumni Relations. "I look forward to continuing to grow the attendance at our reunions and hosting reunions for all of our athletic alumni."
