Olivia Munro, Tessa Keller, Maggie Doyle, and Natalie Lane with Rice players
Recently, youth softball players ventured out for a fun and memorable evening with some of Rice University’s finest. The Rice baseball team hosted a West University Softball Association night at Reckling Park to participate in some pre- and post-game activities. Over 100 WUSA players and family members attended the game to watch the Owls take on the Charlotte 49ers. Daniel Pesikoff, WUSA president, represented the league and threw out the first pitch. WUSA players were invited onto the field for the National Anthem and opening ceremonies, including (pictured, from left, with some of the Rice players) Olivia Munro, Tessa Keller, Maggie Doyle, and Natalie Lane. After the game, the girls got to run the bases and interact with the Rice players.
