12 NCAA TOURNAMENT APPEARANCES | 7 MVC TITLES | 26 ACADEMIC ALL-AMERICANS
Few programs are as decorated as Saluki Softball. With a history of success on the diamond and in the classroom, our players epitomize what it means to be a student-athlete. For the past two decades, our team has finished in the top 10 percent of the NCAA Team GPA Rankings. We’ve produced dozens of All-Conference and All-Region players, including three All-Americans.
The student-athletes we recruit have other options, including offers from bigger schools. They choose SIU because of the devotion of our staff and our storied history. To continue attracting the country’s best, we must offer the experience of a larger school. Doing so requires stable funding and dependable commitment our supporters.
We need private support to fund initiatives that contribute to the program’s success and build awareness and pride for Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
