GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Chattanooga softball head coach Frank Reed became the 28th coach in the nation to reach 1,000 careers wins as the Mocs defeated the Furman Paladins in consecutive 7-5 wins in a Saturday doubleheader in Pepsi Stadium. As the 10th winningest active coach, Reed now holds a 1,001-374 overall record and a 525-307 record at UTC.
“It doesn’t feel like I’ve been doing this long enough to have 1,000 wins,” Reed said. “It feels like it’s been just a few years and yet here we are with a 1,000 wins. There have been a lot of great players and coaches who have been a part of this and it’s about them. It’s about the program. It’s not about me. Everybody has had a hand in building this program and I am proud to be a part of it.”
Extending to a 10-game win streak with a spotless record in league play, Chattanooga (27-8, 8-0 SoCon) had six players with multi-hit games.
Pacing the pen was Kailey Palazzolo as the freshman picked up a save in the first game and went the distance in the second game to earn the victory and remains undefeated this season.
