PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Head Coach Kerri Jacklets of the Providence College softball team announced today (April 29) the addition of Connecticut native, Taryn Braz, to the class of 2018. Braz signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Friars for the 2014-15 season.
"We are excited to welcome Taryn and her family to Providence," said Jacklets. "Taryn's commitment to academic and athletic success fits the culture that is Providence softball. We are looking forward to seeing her excel in the circle wearing the black and white."
Braz, a four-year starting pitcher from Kingswood Oxford School, played travel softball with the Wicked team under the guidance of Mark Macchiarulo. The now senior captained her high school team in her junior and senior season. Braz earned the team MVP honors her junior year and was a 2013 New England Class B finalist. Also in her junior year, Braz led her team in batting average and hits. Braz was also a four-year varsity field hockey player. Academically, she was inducted into the Cum Laude Society as a senior and has made the honor roll every semester.
"Taryn's biggest asset in the circle is her composure," said Macchiarulo. "She approaches each situation with a sense of calm, confidence and purpose. She is one of the rare athletes who can operate on a single, high level in all circumstances. She simply wants the ball in her hands."
