WOMEN'S FAST PITCH SOFTBALL
OHIO UNIVERSITY - CHILLICOTHE
Four bases, three outs, two teams, one winner – that’s OUC softball. From initial tryouts to championship play in a minor league stadium, our women’s softball team stands tall. Enjoy a unique level of team spirit and camaraderie as you work together to enjoy the game and represent our university. Start by practicing together in Shoemaker Center Gym and then work with the team to organize a spring training trip to warmer climates.
All the hard work pays off when you and your teammates don an Ohio University - Chillicothe softball jersey to play on the same field as the Chillicothe Paints.
