Dr. Irma Becerra, President of Marymount University, has announced the addition of softball as a varsity sport, with competition set to begin during the Spring 2022 semester.
“We are tremendously excited to welcome even more Saints athletes to our campus through the addition of softball at Marymount,” President Becerra said. “Through our NCAA Division III athletics programs, our students learn important skills in the areas of leadership, team collaboration and time management. They also demonstrate excellence both when in a Saints uniform and in the classroom, as our teams average a 3.38 GPA.”
Softball will increase the total count of Marymount athletic programs to 20, and it will be sponsored in the Atlantic East Conference. The Saints softball program brings the Atlantic East total number of teams to seven, allowing for the conference champion to automatically qualify for the NCAA Tournament.
Marymount has already begun an extensive search for the team’s first-ever Head Coach
