The Pitt softball continued their busy schedule since my last article. While certainly deserving of an entire piece, former Panther Olivia Gray won the CRUSH Catalyst Award last Friday. Olivia’s on-field resume speaks for itself, but she had an equally, if not more, impressive resume off the field. Congrats, Olivia!

Earlier this week, Pitt rounded out their coaching staff by naming Jenna Hall an assistant coach. Hall comes to the Panthers having spent the last seven seasons at Ohio State and she’ll be focusing on hitting.
Athletic Director Heather Lyke even joined the team for an early morning workout recently.
"To do things with student-athletes, and actually work out with them, I think that's really why we do what we do - is the chance to build relationships." - Heather Lyke— Pitt Softball (@Pitt_SB) September 11, 2019

With the fall season starting at the end of the month, Pitt is doing all the right things to make sure their first step of the 2020 season is in the right direction.
