STOCKTON, Calif. - The women's softball team added another player to their roster for the upcoming 2018-2019 season: Linden High School athlete Carly Lucchetti.
A 5'5" utility player, Lucchetti adds the components of speed and skill to a core of five incoming freshman for the Orange and Black.
"We are excited to add an athlete like Carly this late in the recruiting process," Head Coach Brian Kolze added. "She is a great athlete who can play both infield and outfield and will add more speed to our program."
A two-year captain for the Lions, Lucchetti guided Linden to back-to-back Sac-Joaquin CIF playoff appearances her junior and senior year. The hometown native helped her team to a 59-13 record during her four-year tenure with the Blue and Gold, including a 16-2 first place finish last season.
Lucchetti started all 30 games during her senior campaign carrying the team with 68 hits, 29 RBI, and a .618 batting clip. Known for her speed, Lucchetti converted on 42-43 stolen base attempts for the Lions last season eclipsing the 100 career stolen base mark.
The Linden High product also tallied a team-high six home runs and 17 doubles which helped her earn Cal-Hi Sports All-State 1st Team honors and the Mother Lode League (MLL) MVP.
Lucchetti's 205 career hits, 198 career runs, and 126 stolen bases are the most ever recorded by a player in Linden Softball history. The infielder also holds single-season marks in the hits (68), consecutive hits (10), stolen bases (42), and doubles (17) categories.
A four-time MLL All-Academic selection, Lucchetti intends to major in Psychology while at Pacific.
