“Hey Tiger Fans
Coming to you planeside from 30,000 feet above. First, I would like to say how excited I am to be one of only 16 teams left still playing in the nation. I am honored to be a part of this team, and I am so proud of how far we have come. I know for a fact that we have put in the work to be successful this weekend at Missouri. This team and I are super confident that we can get the job done.
From Kailey McCasland
Q: On a scale from 1-10, how excited are you to be in the super regionals?
A: 5092! IT’s all I’ve ever dreamed of as a kid. And I can taste the victory people!
From Rikki Alcaraz
Q: How old were you when you first started playing softball?
A: I believe I was five years old or so with a helmet three times too big and a bat that was taller than me.
From Ashley Applegate
Q: How do you walk it like a crawfish?
A: I kind of just let the music flow and do whatever you want. Freestyle is just my nature.
From Juliana Santos
Q: How much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
A: I’m going to go with probably not that much since he wouldn’t know how. But I heard Sally sells a lot of seashells by the seashore.
From Tammy Wray
Q: Who taught you how to make all those lovely faces of yours?
A: Honestly, I would have to give you a lot of the credit Tammy. I’ve always had a few goofy faces; but after hanging around you for two years, it has definitely made an impact on my facial muscles.
From Allison Falcon
Q: What is the best thing about being from Louisiana?
A: First and foremost the food duhhh. We can cook!! But second to that is the hospitality. I’ve never met a true Cajun who is shy or unfriendly. We are simply good people who like to have a good time 🙂
From Ashleigh Kuhn
Q: Since our class together this semester went so well, do you think you are going to change your mind and be a PE Coach?
A: No chance. I love kids, but I don’t think that I could ever be a P.E. teacher.
From Tammy Vermeulen
Q: What has been your best experience here at LSU? The one game, day, time that you can remember that will always give you the chills?
A: Alabama last year. I helped Quinlan Duhon with the pump-up video. I just had this gut feeling that we were going to beat the No. 1 team in the nation. Every single inning that we would go out (all 45 it felt like) I just knew we were going to win. And that is just what we did. With two walk-off homeruns, I have never felt so great, screamed so loud or jumped so high with excitement.
From A.J. Andrews
Q: Can you teach me how to dougie?
A: You obviously already know how to dougie. You’ve been doing it since you were 4 years old. So reverse that – A.J., can you teach ME how to dougie?
That’s it for today Tiger fans. Don’t forget to wear purple this weekend if you’re joining us in Columbia.
