TU Softball to Hold Pink Games Saturday
May 2, 2013
TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa will hold its annual pink game in support of breast cancer awareness during its doubleheader Saturday against Southern Miss. The Golden Hurricane plays host to the Golden Eagles in a three-game Conference USA series at the Collins Family Softball Complex.
Tulsa will wear pink jerseys for the doubleheader Saturday, which begins at 1 p.m. The Hurricane is honoring former TU student Katrina Larson, who passed away Dec. 17, 2012, after a two-year battle with breast cancer. TU will hold a silent auction during the games, featuring a team-autographed pink jersey, ball and cap. Donations will also be accepted. Proceeds will be donated to the Katrina Lynn Larson Pink Ribbon Memorial.
Larson graduated from Heritage Hall in Oklahoma City in 2009, and was a nursing student at The University of Tulsa. She was a proud member of the Epsilon Gamma Chapter of Chi Omega.
Members of the Larson family and her Chi Omega sorority sisters will be present at the game honoring Katrina. A member of the family will throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the first game of the doubleheader.
In addition, TU employee Shalise Jordan will toss out a ceremonial first pitch. Jordan has worked at the University of Tulsa for over 20 years in the Controller's Office, and recently overcame her battle with breast cancer.
Fans wearing pink Saturday will receive free admission. Tickets for all TU home softball games are $5. Youth 8th grade and younger wearing their softball jersey receive free admission.
