Former Alabama softball player Caroline Hardy has joined the Georgia Tech staff as a volunteer assistant as announced by head coach Aileen Morales on Friday.

Hardy was a member of the Crimson Tide’s 2019 squad that competed in the Women’s College World Series. She hit a walk-off single in extra innings against top-seeded Oklahoma in an elimination game in the World Series, forcing the ‘if necessary’ game of the semifinal.

Hardy served as an assistant coach for the Fury Platinum 14U travel ball team in Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the summer of 2016, helping the team to a fifth-place finish at ASA Nationals.

“I am very excited for the opportunity to join Coach Morales and her staff at Georgia Tech,” Hardy said. “I’m looking forward to helping build on the success they have had as a program. I can’t wait to get to Atlanta and get started.”
