Keynote - Yvette Girouard

A native of Broussard, Yvette served as head softball coach at UL-Lafayette from 1981 to 2000, and then at LSU from 2000 to 2011. She won over 75 percent of her games on the collegiate level.

Yvette has been named coach of the year by three separate conferences: the SEC (four times), the Sun Belt (2000), and the Southland (1984, 1985 & 1987), as well as Louisiana Coach of the Year 13 times. Today, many of us take equal opportunities in sports, especially for women, for granted. But for Yvette, who attended Comeaux High School and then USL before Title IX had taken root, the opportunities were slim to none. The only sport available to Yvette was softball. And there were no scholarships offered to the women volleyball players.
