BARNESVILLE, GA - Over the weekend, the Gordon State College softball program welcomed back over 40 former student-athletes for its annual alumni softball game. The alumni played a seven inning contest with the current members of Highlander softball team and the visiting team came away with a 6-5 victory.
Following the game the alumni gathered with the current players and families to share a few laughs and reminisce about their days at Gordon State College. Joined by Austin Shippam and Steve Argo from the Gordon State College Advancement Office, Head Softball Coach Ally Hattermann thanked all of the alums that traveled back to campus for this event. "We had a fantastic response to this event," said Hattermann. "To be honest, when we were in the planning stages, I wasn't quite sure how many of the alumni would want to play. To have twenty five women suit up to play the game (and another twenty or so in the stands supporting) with their former teammates speaks volumes on how special their time was here at Gordon State College."
Coach Hattermann has already put September 13, 2020 on the calendar for the next alumni softball game.
