ARLINGTON, Texas – UT Arlington coach Kristie Fox announced the signing of pitcher Shannon Carrico to the softball program. Carrico comes to UT Arlington from Texas Tech and will be eligible to play for the Mavericks in the 2014 season.
"Shannon brings a real strength and stability to our pitching staff," Fox said. "We look forward to her development throughout the fall. I foresee her providing us quality innings and games in the spring."
The 5-7 sophomore saw action is six games as a Red Raider freshman, with one putout and one stolen base.
Carrico was a four-year starter for Wall High School where she helped lead the Lady Hawks to the playoffs all four seasons, with a trip to the state tournament as a junior. She was named three-time all-state selection by the Texas Girls Coaches Association (TGCA), and district 7-2A MVP in each of her final three seasons.
She finished her high school career with more than 1,000 strikeouts, including a perfect game, five no-hitters and 15 shutouts. She also batted .357 as a senior.
