YOUNG PROGRAM

  • The Clemson softball program has accomplished multiple feats for being a program with just over 100 games.
  • Entering this season, the only players with over 100 collegiate games under their belts are transfers that began their careers at other programs. These players include Marissa Guimbarda, Grace Mattimore, Cammy Pereira, Sam Russ and Bailey Taylor.
  • Valerie Cagle surpassed the 100-game mark at the same time as the program after starting in every game in program history.
  • The remaining 23 players on the 2022 roster have appeared in less than 100 games led by JoJo Hyatt (95) and Arielle Oda (91).
  • The Tigers won the ACC Regular Season Title in their first complete season in the 2021 after playing only 27 games in 2020.
  • In only their second season, the Tigers also competed in the ACC Championship game and at the Tuscaloosa Regional.

SENIOR CLASS AWARD

  • Graduates Marissa Guimbarda and Cammy Pereira have been selected as two of the 30 candidates for the 2022 Softball Senior CLASS Award.
  •  An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
  • Clemson is one of two programs in the country to have multiple athletes selected as candidates, the other being Washington.
  • The 30 candidates will be narrowed to 10 finalists later this season, and those names will be placed on the official ballot for nationwide voting.
