    Especially the sportswriters for her hometown paper, the Times-Picayune.

  4. UL Softball Re: Danyele Gomez


    LOUISIANA La. The storied career of Danyele Gomez was given national notoriety this week when the senior outfielder was featured in Sports Illustrated's "Faces in the Crowd," that is available on newsstands now.

    Gomez, who won the Sun Belt's Triple Crown in leading Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns softball team to the 2006 Sun Belt regular season and tournament titles, was a part of the "Faces in the Crowd" section of the May 29 Sports Illustrated issue.

    Gomez was recognized for leading all Division I of the NCAA in home runs during the 2006 season. The Metairie native ended the season with 30 home runs only the third player in NCAA history to reach 30 home runs in a single season.

    She ended her career with 83 career home runs which ranks as the third-highest total in NCAA history. Reaching the 80 home run plateau which made her only the fourth to do so in a career was the basis of her nomination.

    I don't think SI puts their Faces in the Crowd section online.


  7. UL Softball Re: Danyele Gomez an All-American


      STARKVILLE, Miss. Louisiana senior outfielder Danyele Gomez was named a first-team All-American by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) in partnership with Louisville Slugger on Wednesday.

    Gomez, who leads the nation in home runs, was selected as one of three outfielders in the nation directly selected to the first team. It's the third time in her career that she's been named an All-American (also selected in 2003 and 2005).

    Gomez' selection marks the eighth straight season that at least one player from UL was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-America Team.

    The senior from Metairie, La., becomes the program's 12th first-team selection and joins former teammate Brooke Mitchell (2004) as first team selections under co-head coaches Stefni and Michael Lotief.

    Gomez is the first Cajun position player to be awarded first team status since Tiffany Clark (outfielder) in 2000.

    The selection was the 35th in UL softball history and since 1989. UL has now had at least one All-American softball student-athlete in 17 of the last 18 seasons.

  8. Default All-American talent UL's Gomez is among game's elite


      Unlike many other collegiate sports, softball has only one generally-recognized All-America squad. It's the one selected by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.

    It's an exclusive group. Only 18 players are honored as first-team All-America selections.

    Of course, what Danyele Gomez accomplished for the University of Louisiana softball squad this season was pretty exclusive, and pretty amazing.

    Eighty-three career home runs, the fourth-highest total in NCAA history and 26 more than anyone else ever at UL ... Thirty homers this year, joining only two other players in the sport's Division I history to reach that mark ... The national champion in home runs, runs scored and slugging percentage.

    It was probably a pretty easy choice for the NFCA selection committee, which named her as one of the three outfielders on its 2006 All-America team.

    "What else is there to say," said Cajun coach Stefni Lotief - UL's first-ever NFCA first-team All-America pick in 1990. "I learned that with her, anything's possible."

  9. UL Softball Danyele Gomez


    HOUSTON - Former Louisiana-La. slugger Danyele Gomez has signed a contract to play with the Texas Thunder this season, as announced today by team owner Rabitt Blake.

    During her four years at Lousiana, Gomez was a .359 hitter, while playing primarily left field for the Ragin' Cajuns. She became only the fifth student-athlete in UL-La. softball history to be named a three time Division I First Team All-American (2003, 2005, 2006).

    "We are thrilled to have a player like Danyele join us in Texas," said Blake. "Gomez adds so much to our lineup because of her power and we look forward to seeing what she can do here."

    The Metairie, La. native she set the Louisiana-Lafayette single season record for home runs (30), runs scored (77), total bases (199) and slugging percentage (.957). Gomez was named the Sun Belt's Triple Crown winner, had 32 multi-hit games, 17 multi-RBI games and is only the fourth player in NCAA history to reach 80 career home runs, hitting 83 total.

    Gomez joins former college teammate Krystal Lewallen in Texas. Lewallen signed last week to play with the Thunder. Gomez and Lewallen are just two of five rookies to be on the Thunder roster for the 2006 season.

  10. UL Softball Gomez still at home on the diamond


      There are now more worlds to conquer - two of them, in fact - for University of Louisiana softball standout Danyele Gomez.

    The senior outfielder, who wrapped up her career as the most prolific power hitter in Ragin' Cajun history, opens her participation Friday in the U.S. team trials for the World University Games in Chula Vista, Calif.

    From there, she heads to Houston, where she has signed to play with the Texas Thunder of the National Pro Fastpitch league.

    "It never stops for her," said Cajun coach Stefni Lotief. "It's great that she's getting these opportunities to take it to the next level and go and test her skills a little more."

    The first of those tests comes Friday-Sunday when she competes with 40 invited players from across the country for 18 spots on the team that will represent the U.S. at the World University Games July 15-23 in Taiwan.

    If she makes that squad, she'll have to take time off from the Thunder, which has already opened its season in the eight-team NPF league, formerly known as the Women's Pro Softball League.

  12. UL Softball Re: Danyele Gomez


    LEAGUE CITY, Texas - The Thunder scored two early runs on Friday night and Danyele Gomez launched her second home run of the season to help Texas defeat the Connecticut Brakettes by a final score of 3-1.

    Texas was trailing 1-0 entering the bottom of the first inning, but they quickly responded by scoring a run of their own to tie the game. The Thunder would score the eventual winning run in the bottom of the fourth inning. Kristen Zaleski singled and moved to third on a steal of second and a groundout. She came in to score on a Nikki Myers wild pitch.

    The big shot of the game came off the bat of the rookie Gomez. Gomez, who hit 31 home runs in her senior season at University of Louisiana-Lafayette, hit her second home run of the season to give Texas the 3-1 win.
