Peru State Foundation to Host Baseball Alumni Reunion and Picnic

PERU – The Peru State Foundation, in collaboration with the College’s athletic department, are sponsoring its first baseball alumni reunion.

Deborah Solie, Director of Alumni Relations and Annual Fund, has organized the event. Solie stated, “What better way to cap off the baseball season by hosting an alumni reunion in conjunction with the team’s senior day activities. We look forward to having a number of alumni back for the event on Saturday.”

The event will be held this coming Saturday, April 27, at the Centennial Complex Field. There will be a picnic/cookout prior to the double header beginning at 11:30 a.m.

The Bobcats will be hosting Evangel (Mo.) for a double header beginning at 1 p.m. Between the games with the Crusaders, the baseball alumni in attendance will be recognized.

Also between games, Peru State senior women’s golfer Lindsay Harlow (Dawson)will be honored.

Following the double header, the Bobcat baseball seniors will be recognized.

This is also a community event where Peru city members and all others in the Nemaha County area are invited to attend.

RSVP by April 24 if possible to the Peru State Foundation by phone at 402-872-2304 or by emailing Deborah Solie at

Peru State baseball coach Wayne Albury is pleased the Foundation is doing more alumni and community-related events. Albury commented, “The Foundation has been doing an excellent job the past few years in organizing various alumni and community events. We hope there are a good number of alumni who come back and support the Bobcat baseball team in its final conference double header of the year.”
