Megan Warhurst committed to play softball at the University of West Florida last week. The junior pitcher for the Golden Tigers pitched 127 innings in 33 games last season as a sophomore. She struckout 95 batters and had a .253 opponents batting average against her.
Warhurst has been attending camps at UWF since the summer prior to her freshmen season, and the Argos were the first program to show interest in her as a player. She has continued to develop a strong bond with the staff and players there, and ultimately, that influenced her decision to commit.
“I was invited back early this month, and I was allowed to stay with some of my future teammates,” Warhurst explained. “I quickly grew friendships with several of the girls and that was when I knew the University of West Florida was the place I wanted to be.”
Golden Tiger softball coach Kathryn Montgomery is very excited for Warhurst and expects big things from her this season: “She has gained speed and command through the offseason. She demonstrates great work ethic, dedication, and determination. Looking forward to a year with her dominating in the circle and with our defense making consistent plays on what our pitching staff delivers.”
Congrats, Megan! The Golden Tiger family is proud of you!
