New practice facility gives softball program a boost

Everyone knows what a national powerhouse the UW softball team is. Soon, the program will receive a boost in the form of a brand-new indoor facility adjacent to Husky Stadium and the Nordstrom Tennis Center. The 5,500-square-foot Softball Performance Center is slated to be completed in August, according to softball head coach Heather Tarr, ’98.

“The momentum from this indoor facility can be huge,” Tarr says. “From a recruiting standpoint, player development, there is just so much that it can do for our program.”
