University of Alabama assistant softball coach Alyson Habetz has been named to the University of Louisiana-Lafayette “S” Club Hall of Fame.
“It’s a tremendous honor and privilege to be part of such a prestigious group,” said Habetz. “This is a reflection of all the help I had along the way, from my family, (softball coach) Yvette Girouard, Patrick (Murphy) and (basketball) Coach Searle.”
Habetz, a graduate from ULL in 1994, was a standout softball and basketball player for the Lady Cajuns. She helped lead the 1993 softball team to its first ever World Series appearance.
A four-year letter winner in both sports, Habetz was a softball All-American in 1994 and earned Academic All-American status in 1993 and 1994.
After her collegiate career she went on to play professional baseball with the Colorado Silver Bullets for three years (1996-97) before coming to Alabama as an assistant coach in 1999.
The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to give recognition to those athletes who have made a significant contribution to the good name of the university by demonstrating exceptional ability and sportsmanship on the playing fields, commendable scholarship in the classroom, high quality leadership on the campus, and who after leaving the university established a personal reputation for character and citizenship in the community which they reside.
