Penn State Softball’s Clarisa Crowell Named ECAC Division l Coach Of The Year

In her second season at the helm of Penn State softball, Clarisa Crowell has been named the Eastern College Athletic Conference Division l Coach of the Year.

Crowell led Penn State to the most significant turnaround in Division l softball this year by finishing the season with a 32-22 record, which was a 25-win improvement from the squad’s 2021 season. This was also the first time since 2016 that the Nittany Lions reached the 30-win mark.

Crowell and her squad had at least one win in every Big Ten series for the first time ever and also were above .500 in conference play for the first time since 2016. One of the most memorable moments from the 2022 season was the Nittany Lions’ first win over Michigan since 2007.

Records were broken all over the field, as Penn State had 12 shutouts, which is its most since 2008, 75 doubles (second-most in program history), and 43 home runs (third-most in program history) this season.

Senior pitcher Bailey Parshall also earned recognition from the ECAC on Thursday. She was named an All-ECAC honorable mention, which adds to the team’s list of accolades from the 2022 season.
