Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun softball team #6-overall national seed, will take on the 11th-seeded Arizona Wildcats in a best-of-three game Super Regional series this weekend at Lamson Park.

To get you ready for the very first Super Regional Regional ever played in Lafayette, La., we reached out to some former UL greats, to not only preview the big series, but also take a look back at some special postseason memories.

Former UL coach Yvette Girouard was a guest on “Thinking Out Loud” on Tuesday.

Girouard, a graduate of Comeaux High School, was the softball coach there, before starting the program at then-USL in 1981.

In 20 seasons as head coach of the Cajuns, Girouard posted an overall record of 759-250, and took three teams to the Women’s College World Series, including a school-high third-place finish in 1993.

Girouard then went on to coach LSU for 11 seasons accumulating an overall record of 526-171, while guiding two Tiger teams to the WCWS.

A member of both the Louisiana Softball Coaches Hall of Fame, as well as the NFCA Hall of Fame, Girouard has 1,285 career victories to her credit.

The UL softball program is certainly a special one, and it took a special coach to get it rolling, and that coach was Yvette Girouard.

The term “legend” is often overused, but in the case of Girouard, it’s an understatement.

Coach Girouard was our guest on Tuesday, to talk UL softball, give some softball stories, and talk about the Super Regionals.
