Lady Vols softball lands top recruiting class

Tennessee softball co-head coaches Ralph and Karen Weekly announced the addition of eight newcomers as part of the Lady Vols 2019 signing class.

"I am very happy to introduce these exceptional student-athletes to our fan base," said co-head coach Ralph Weekly. "We knew when we started recruiting this class we wanted a lefty pitcher, utility players who can hit and pitch, more power, and at least two very good middle infielders. These eight players provide all of that and more. Seven of the eight play multiple positions and play them well. They are also very good students who are dedicated to academic success."

The Lady Vols have the top recruiting class in 2019 according to Extra Inning Softball and FloSoftball. Tennessee has seven players ranked in the FloSoftball Hot 100 and six players in the Extra Inning Softball Extra Elite 100 – including five players in the Top 50 of FloSoftball.

Amanda Curran, Anna Fox, Anna Hazlewood, Caitlyn McCrary, Kiki Milloy, Callie Turner, Madison Webber, and Josie Willingham comprise the Lady Vols' signing class. All eight newcomers will be eligible for competition starting with the 2019-20 academic year.
