"Students vs. the World" softball game 2009

On Thursday, September 17, the students of Saint Martin’s University hosted the first “Students vs. the World” softball game, a warm-up event to the Inauguration. Faculty, staff, monks, and board of trustee members (aka “The World”) banded together to take on the students in some good clean (competitive) fun! President Roy Heynderickx started things off by throwing out the ceremonial first pitch. “The World” kept the game close in the early innings, with hits from faculty, staff, and Kathleen Heynderickx, but the students broke it open by the middle innings. The final score was 8-1, with the students taking the victory. As a consolation prize, the members of the student team presented the President with a softball trophy with all their signatures. During and after the game, everyone enjoyed BBQ prepared by Bon Appétit, the University’s new dining service, and received “I (heart) SMU” T shirts provided by ASSMU. A great day overall!
