A signup sheet can be found on under the softball tab. Former coaches Johnny Williams and Rob Channell and current assistant Duane Burt will be in attendance. Co-Lin has been playing fastpitch softball for 15 years.

“We are really excited about this,” said Kent, who is beginning his 13th year as head coach. “Many great friendships were made through softball. It’s an opportunity to get together and rekindle some of those relationships, while still being able to have some fun on the field. We’re aware that some girls may have old injuries, etc. that may keep them from playing. However, we hope that those who don’t wish to actually play will still come for the fellowship.”

“There have been some tremendous athletes come through the program, as Co-Lin Softball has enjoyed plenty of success. We’re looking forward to getting them back on campus. Hopefully it can develop into annual event,” said Kent.
