Softball Welcomes Shelby Jeffries As Volunteer Assistant Coach
SEATTLE – Washington softball head coach Heather Tarr announced on Wednesday the addition of Shelby Jeffries to the coaching staff as a volunteer assistant coach.
"We've known Shelby for her entire prep and college career and are looking forward to adding her to our staff," Tarr said. "She brings a wealth of knowledge both offensively and on the pitching front. Growing up in the area, learning from former Husky Eve Gaw and playing at Cal Poly under pitching coach Ally Carda, we are excited to benefit from Shelby's experience. She will bring passion and hard work to our group."
Jeffries played five years at Cal Poly where she was named NFCA All-West Region Second Team her senior year as a utility player/pitcher. In her final two season with the Mustangs, Jeffries batted .309 with 40 RBI, 12 doubles and seven home runs. Her 10 career home runs rank seventh in program history. In the circle, Jeffries recorded 62 career strikeouts and two complete games.
Following her collegiate career, Jeffries went on to become a graduate assistant/pitching coach at Cal State Bakersfield. During her time with the Roadrunners, she assisted in the training and development of the offense and defense while also calling pitches in-game.
Jeffries graduated with her degree in recreation, parks and tourism administration from Cal Poly in 2021 and is currently pursuing her master's in administration from Cal State Bakersfield.
Before her time at Cal Poly, Jeffries was a four-year letterwinner and 2016 Cascade Conference Pitcher and Defensive Player of the Year at Sultan High School in Sultan, Wash.
