Lafayette, La — She pioneered the UL-Lafayette softball program before coaching the Lady Tigers for eleven years, and yesterday, Yvette Girouard was back at Lamson Park in Lafayette.
She threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the ULL-Houston game and the crowd was wild with excitement.
Girouard was the first coach of the Lady Cajuns softball program and built a strong tradition of excellence before leaving for LSU in 2000. She retired from coaching after the 2011 season.
