Three Tigers were included in Extra Inning Softball’s Top 100 rankings ahead of the 2023 season,
which is set to open up next month.
Clemson’s ace Valerie Cagle led the trio with a top-10 ranking and was followed by centerfielder McKenzie Clark ,
and left-handed pitcher Millie Thompson who rounded out the Tigers included.
After a hugely successful third year for head coach John Rittman and the Tigers last season,
Clemson looks to build on what was the program’s first ever trip to the NCAA Super Regionals,
against a talented Oklahoma State Cowgirls team,
as well as hosting an NCAA Regional at McWhorter Stadium for the first time in program history ,
and the Tigers second ACC Championship appearance in just three seasons.
