BAGAA offered a pitching clinic on June 1, 2014 for any girls that were interested in learning or working on their pitching skills for fast pitch softball. It was conducted by Alyssa O'Connell. I really believe the girls took a lot of good drills home with them to practice on.
Alyssa O'Connell played for the Pitt Softball team from 2008 to 2011 and pitched for them all 4 years. In her Senior year she garnered All-Big East third team honors. Some of her many accomplishments include:
- ranked among the NCAA Division I top-50 in shutouts
- set the single-season win percentage record at .750
- tied the single-season record for shutouts
- set a team record for shutouts in a season
- led the Panthers with a career-high 15 wins
- named Big East Pitcher of the Week 3 times
- coached a small group of elite pitchers in the Pittsburgh region since graduating in 2011
Thank you Alyssa!!
