Dear prospective Cyclone,

THINK IOWA STATE!  That is what I hope you will do after learning more about our program. As I enter my fifth year here as a Cyclone, I think of what we have accomplished and the future goals I have for the softball program.

In the classroom our players have done a great job. I am proud to say that each semester we have posted a team grade point average above a 3.00. We’ve had at least six players on the Academic All Big-12 teams each year, which ranks among the best in the league.

On the field we continue to set school records in every offensive and pitching category. We also are improving and setting records in our win total. In 2009, we had the most Big 12 wins ever for Iowa State. We continue to improve in statistics, but most importantly our players improve each year.

The building process is ongoing in our program and we are looking for you if you are the kind of player that wants to compete against some of the best players in the country and in one of the top conferences.

I appreciate you taking the time to look into Iowa State University as a place to continue the pursuit of your academic and athletics aspirations. Please contact us with any and all of your questions. We want you and your family to learn everything you need to know to make the most important decision in your life.

Continue to work hard in school and on your softball skills. I wish you the best of luck in the future with your game.

Go Cyclones!
