NOTEBOOK: Corrick earns third team All-American nod
After posting collegiate career highs in innings pitched, ERA and strikeouts, USF softball pitcher Georgina Corrick was selected as a third team All-American by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.
It was second time in two years that Corrick was recognized. She earned a spot on the second team in 2019.
Her 2021 campaign was highlighted by a 0.98 ERA, which ranked second in the nation among those who pitched over 150 innings, and first among those who pitched over 200 innings. She also ranked fourth in the country in strikeouts with 333.
Additionally, Corrick led the country in shutouts as she posted 15, beating senior pitcher Hailey Dolcini of Fresno State by one.
Perhaps one of Corrick’s best string of performances occurred in the Gainesville Regional as she pitched a total of 26 innings over four games and allowed just four earned runs. She also tossed a no-hitter against Baylor in the second game of the regional.
Women’s golf brings in transfer from Vanderbilt
After spending four years at Vanderbilt, Morgan Baxendale elected to transfer to USF for her final collegiate season of golf.
Born in Pennsylvania, Baxendale moved to Windermere when she was young and graduated from The First Academy in Windermere.
Baxendale had an extra year of eligibility to use after the NCAA announced that last season would not count against an athlete’s years of eligibility due to the impact COVID-19 may have had on their seasons.
In 2019 and 2020, Baxendale qualified for the U.S. Amateur Championship.
Men’s tennis gets transfer from South Carolina
The USF men’s tennis team had an overall record of 17-10 last season with a 3-3 mark in conference play, and it has the opportunity to get better next season with additions like Bruno Oliveira.
The addition of Oliveira was announced June 1 by coach Ashley Fisher, who called Oliveira “a high-character, hard-working young man.”
Oliveira, who’s hometown is Belo Horizonte, Brazil, has 11 International Tennis Federation doubles titles.
