“You have to let them have their choice on something. If it makes them feel better, then good. It’s part of the fun and the atmosphere of being at the ballpark. The music definitely adds to it. … I’m all for it, and the girls seem to enjoy it.”

Softball coach Carol Hutchins

 

Senior shortstop Jessica Merchant:

“Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy”

— Big and Rich

“I just wanted a country song. It has a good beginning so I went with it. Country music is what I listen to, so I figured I’d find a country song.”

 

Senior designated player Nicole Motycka:

“Machinehead”

— Bush

“I didn’t want anything too up tempo because I didn’t want to get overanxious at the plate, and I didn’t want anything too mellow either. It’s very even-keeled.”

 

Freshman first baseman Samantha Findlay:

“Black Betty”

— Ram Jam

“My best friend Lindsay (Borden) is a gymnast here, and we were going through songs, and she said it represented who I am, so that’s what I did.”

 

Junior second baseman Tiffany Haas:

“Eye of the Tiger”

— Survivor

“It really pumps me up.”

 

Junior catcher Becky Marx:

“Layla”

— Derek and the Dominos

“I don’t really like rap and stuff; I’m a big fan of old rock, so that’s why I chose that.”

 

Would Hutchins have a theme song?

“Yeah, probably, but they wouldn’t be able to play it.”
