Organ Recipient Throws Out First Pitch

NORMAN, Oklahoma — Curtis Kingfisher is living for the moment but it&#039s a moment he almost didn&#039t live to see.

“One day Curtis is just a die hard OU fan, the next day he is a Sooner for a day and the next thing you know he is connected to the OU family through his kidney donor,” Curtis&#039 dad Floyd Kingfisher said.

Curtis was able to throw out the first pitch at the Sooners&#039 game against Missouri because of Mariee Mena, the former OU softball player who passed away last fall after a motor cycle accident.

San Diego Renegades Mourn the Loss of an Original Renegade

"If there was ever a definition of a San Diego Renegade softball player, Mariee&#039s picture would be there.” “She was a blue collar athlete and one of the fiercest competitors to ever play in a Sooner uniform.”

President, San Diego Renegades

Head Coach, Oklahoma

Mariee MenaMariee Mena, 26, a member of one of the original San Diego Renegades
teams, passed away Tuesday October 6 as a result of a fatal motorcycle accident in Oklahoma City.

Mariee Mena was one of the original San Diego
Renegades. During her tenure as a Renegade, Mariee compiled a
lifetime .375 BA and started at four different positions. Mariee
attended a total of six ASA nationals during her career including one
as a pick up player for the 16U California Cruisers that won
Nationals in 1998. Mariee obtained 13 Varsity letters in her HS
career lettering in Soccer, Tennis, Volleyball, and Softball. Mariee
also overcame two knee operations including a full ACL in 1999. Her
loyalty and dedication to her team, teammates and the organization is
beyond reproach. Mariee will be greatly missed but the memory of her
achievements as a San Diego Renegade will never be lost.

A fund has been set up to assist the Mena family with the cost of
medical expenses and funeral arrangements. Donations can be mailed to
University of Oklahoma Athletics Development at 180 West Brooks,
Suite 3575, Norman, OK 73019. Please make checks payable to the OU
Foundation and reference Mariee Mena.
