The UTA softball team has a new addition after head coach Kristie Fox announced the Mavericks signed Texas Tech University sophomore pitcher Shannon Carrico. She will be eligible to pitch in 2014.
"Shannon brings a real strength and stability to our pitching staff," Fox said in a statement. "We look forward to her development throughout the fall. I foresee her providing us quality innings and games in the spring."
Carrico made six appearances for Texas Tech last season.
