PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Jill Karwoski joins the Providence College women’s softball team as a volunteer coach for the coming season.
"Jill is an exciting addition to our staff," Head Coach Kerri Jacklets said. "I have known Jill for years and I trust her philosophy and coaching techniques. She is student-athlete centered, she understands what we are trying to accomplish and knows where we need to improve. Jill will work with me on overall team development and analysis.”
Prior to Providence, Karwoski spent a year as the head coach at Merrimack College. She led the team to a 19-23 overall record in her first season with the Warriors.
Karwoski joined the Boston College softball staff in 2007. Karwoski served as the recruiting coordinator for five seasons and produced the program’s first ACC Rookie of the Year in 2011. She also assisted training the infield and the offense. During 2011, BC finished second in the ACC in home runs (57) and slugging percentage.
Previously, Karwoski had a four year stint as head coach at Morehead State. She started as the assistant coach in 2002, and was promoted two years after to associate head coach. As head coach, Karwoski led the program to its best overall record since 1999. Her teams compiled a school record in strikeouts (278), highest fielding percentage (.961) and tied the record for most wins.
A former Division II student-athlete at Lewis State, Karwoski was a three-time NFCA All-American Scholar Athlete and a two-time All-Region selection. She played 222 games at Lewis State and appeared in the starting line-up 211 times. She recorded a career batting average of .335.
“I'm excited to embrace the opportunity to return to a major conference and join a very motivated staff looking to build a winning culture,” said Karwoski on coming to Friartown.
