On October 16, 2005, former and current Knights softball players gathered at Bell Field to compete in the Second Annual Alumni Softball game. It was a hard fought battle which ended in a (hotly contested) 4-4 tie, but everyone agreed that it was one of the most fun games they ever played.
Highlights of the game included: Andrea Carroll pitching 3 innings after taking a 2.5 year break from pitching. Abby Kalland's triple which drove in 2 runs. Senior pitcher Caitlin Cornell hitting Steph Lee on the first pitch of the game right after everyone gave Steph a hard time about her lack of padding. Megan Storey's sac bunt in the first inning to move Steph over and Vickie Gunderson's follow up bunt single with a 3-0 count which moved Steph to third. The excellent execution of a first and third play which resulted in Amanda Espinosa getting the ball to catcher Leslie Barry to tag out the third base runner. And Vickie Gunderson's battles with the sun to catch pop flies at second base.
