Girouard Selected to NFCA All-American Committee

STARKVILLE, Miss. — LSU softball coach Yvette Girouard has been selected to serve on the National Fastpitch Coaches Association [NFCA] All-American committee Monday as announced by the governing body of collegiate softball.

Girouard’s two-year term on the committee begins immediately and will run through December 2011. At that point, she will be eligible to be re-elected to a second two-year term.

Girouard represents the South Region and is one of 10 coaches on the committee that has a hand in selecting NFCA All-Americans and Coaching Staff of the Year.

LSU opens the 2010 season at the Time Warner Cable Texas Invitational where the Tigers square off against North Carolina, DePaul and host Texas, a trio of NCAA Tournament squads from a season ago.
