Softball Clinic Set for Feb. 5 at Rancho Cotate
Alicia Hollowell and Amy Chellevold, both of whom had record-setting careers at the University of Arizona, will be at Rancho Cotate High School (Rohnert Park) on Saturday, Feb. 5 for a softball clinic.
The Nor Cal Assault and West Coast Ghosts, ASA Junior Olympic softball organizations based in Sonoma County, have organized the clinic.
There will be three sessions — 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (beginner-grade school), 12:45 to 2:15 (intermediate-junior high) and 2:30 to 4:00 (advanced-high school). Cost is $40 per player.
From 9 to 10:30 a.m. there will be a clinic for coaches. The cost: $20.
Holloway, a native of Suisun, pitched Arizona to the 2006 NCAA championship. She was named the tournament’s most outstanding player following her 5-0 victory over Northwestern in the title game.
Holloway left Arizona as the all-time leader in wins, strikeouts and no-hitters. As a junior, she surpassed Jennie Finch’s school record of 1,028 career strikeouts and pitched eight no-hitters (including three perfect games).
Hollowell was one of 18 players representing the United State on the national softball team. She traveled across the country with Team USA and was in Beijing during the 2008 Summer Olympics.
Chellevold is Arizona’s first four-time all-Pac 10 Conference selection. She played in four NCAA championship games, helping win two of them. When she graduated in 1995, she held 27 Arizona career records and was the nation’s all-time leader in hits (371) and runs (252).
After a five-year coaching career at U of A, she currently serves with the
ASA Softball on the national committee which includes coaching pool and player selection.
