On August 8th, 7 Kennedy alumni visited the Nebraska Softball Hall of Fame in Hastings, Nebraska. Betty Alig Sweet, Casey McAtee Pontow, Beth Richards, Lindy Albertson, Marian Raider DeShazer, Carl Wirth and LuLu made the nostalgic and sometimes emotional trip. KHASTV, the local Hastings tv station, taped interviews of the former JFK players as they toured the museum and saw pictures and tributes to former classmates and players. Cathy Buell, Marv Razor, Harry Kasischke and Coach Don "Pappy" Joe are honored there. The tape will be on the stations website for a limited time around August 9th. The former players made a point of clearing up facts about the origination of the womens college world series in 1969 in Omaha and not in 1982 as posted. Final moments of the trip were dedication of the uniform of former teammate, Karen "Trixie" (Peitz) Studen in her honor.
