The Alabama softball program announced Tuesday the incoming transfer of infielder Taylor Clark from Virginia Tech. A junior, Clark was a two-year starter for the Hokies. She will be eligible to play next spring.
A native of Mechanicsburg, Pa., Clark made 31 starts as a freshman for the Hokies at shortstop and third base and made 35 starts at third as a sophomore last season. She was second on the team with 18 RBIs last season and led the team in batting average (.278), slugging percentage (.528) and on-base percentage (.381) in conference play.
“We are very excited to welcome Taylor to the Alabama softball family,” UA head coach Patrick Murphy said. “We are happy to help Taylor find a home to finish her career.”
Clark is the Crimson Tide’s second Division I transfer this year, joining Hofstra pitcher Sarah Cornell. The two join five other newcomers on the roster: NJCAA national pitcher of the year Krystal Goodman and freshmen Kloyee Anderson, Kayla Davis, Montana Fouts and Skylar Wallace.
