The Oklahoma State softball team, coming off its winningest season since 1994, continued to bolster its 2020 roster by signing Carrie Eberle from Virginia Tech on Monday.

She is the second Atlantic Coast Conference transfer from the state of Virginia to join OSU this summer after Virginia's Hayley Busby signed with the Cowgirls earlier this month. 

Eberle, an incoming senior, was a frontline starter and a workhorse in the circle the past three seasons for the Hokies. She earned conference honors in all three campaigns, with selection to the ACC All-Freshman Team in 2017, the All-ACC Second Team in 2018 and was a First-Team All-ACC honoree in 2019.

Last season, Eberle was also named the ACC Pitcher of the Year for her dominance in the circle. She started 32 games and compiled a 25-8 record to go along with an impressive 1.84 ERA. The right-hander tallied 164 strikeouts in 201.1 innings pitched while holding opponents to a .236 batting average during her junior campaign. 

The Charlotte, North Carolina, native gave up just six home runs last season and has allowed only 17 total in 542 career innings of work.

Aside from overpowering batters, Eberle also has had tremendous success in the classroom. The incoming senior was named the ACC Softball Scholar-Athlete of the Year last season, has earned CoSIDA Academic All-District honors the past two years and was selected to the conference's All-Academic Team both in 2017 and 2019.

Prior to her collegiate career, Eberle was a four-year letterwinner at Catholic High School and was named The Charlotte Observer Softball Player of the Year. She was named to the All-State and All-District team four times in high school.  

Eberle is the daughter of T.J. and Missie Eberle and has one brother, Joey. She was majoring in biology at Virginia Tech and wants to be a forensic scientist or a medical examiner in the future.
