Softball to Hold First Ever Diamond Club Meeting
Jan. 30, 2008
The University of Memphis softball team will hold its first ever Diamond Club meeting on Tuesday, February 19 at 6 p.m. in the Athletic Office Building lobby. All Diamond Club members and those interested in joining are encouraged to attend the event.
The Diamond Club has been organized to help build the infant softball program at Memphis into a top national contender. The goals of the club are to allow parents, alumni and members of the community to show their support for the Tiger softball program.
In its first two seasons of existence, Memphis head coach Windy Thees has guided the Tigers to a 64-51 overall record. The team reached its first Conference USA Championship Tournament last season in dramatic fashion, winning its final six conference games to earn one of six spots.
Under Thees' direction, Memphis players have earned seven All-Conference awards and one NFCA All-South Region selection. Her players have also found success in the classroom with all six of her seniors earning their diploma.
Last season, the Tigers opened a new $1.7 million stadium on the university's Park Avenue Campus, and 2008 will mark the first full year in the complex.
