Fresno State softball is sponsoring Strikeout Cancer this weekend against Boise State.
Carly Wynn returns for her second season as an assistant coach with Fresno State after spending the previous two seasons at her alma mater and former ACC champion Florida State.
In her first season in the Valley, she helped lead the 'Dogs to a 30-24 mark overall in 2013 and second place in the Mountain West with a 11-7 MW record.
In NCAA categories, Fresno State stood proudly among the national leaders in triples (12th, 0.31 per game), fielding (24th, .971) and stolen bases (29th, 1.61 p/g).
Outfielder Brenna Moss topped the nation in triples per game (0.18) and ranked top 100 in stolen bases (15th, 0.67 p/g) and toughest to strike out (72nd, 1:16.3 at-bats), as did infielder Maria Sio (sacrifice hits, fourth, 0.35 p/g), pitcher Jillian Compton (shutouts, 35th, 7), pitcher Hannah Harris (saves, 72nd, 2; walks, 92nd, 1.81 p/7 innings) and outfielder Michelle Solomon (triples, 95th, 3).
In return for their excellence on the field, Fresno State celebrated a league-leading four All-MW selections (Compton, Moss, catcher Paige Gumz and infielder Vonnie Martin).
Among MW rolls, the team was also easy to spot as it led categories in fielding (.971) and stolen bases (1.61 p/g), and stood second in ERA (73rd, 2.66) and triples (12th, 0.31 p/g). Likewise, individual MW season leaders included Moss (triples, stolen bases), Harris (saves, 2), Compton (shutouts), and Sio (sacrifice hits).
Before joining the distinguished Bulldog program, Wynn served as a graduate assistant and volunteer assistant for the Seminoles from 2010-12. While at FSU, Wynn assisted with the offense, defense and camps.
Prior to joining the Noles, Wynn spent a season playing in the National Professional Fastpitch league for the Tennessee Diamonds.
Helping the squad to four straight NCAA Tournament trips, Wynn was a three-time captain at Florida State. She was named to the All-ACC Team three times in her career and twice to the Academic All-ACC team. Wynn was also named an Academic All-American in 2009 and 2010. The former outfielder has the highest batting average (.378) under the current coaching staff. She also ranks among the top 10 in 8-of-10 offensive categories.
Wynn, a native of Sharpsburg, Ga., graduated from Florida State in May of 2010 with a bachelor's degree in Psychology and in December of 2011 with a master's degree in Sport Management.
