AUSTIN, Texas – Texas head softball coach Mike White announced on Tuesday the signing of UCLA transfer Colleen Sullivan (Sophomore/Catcher-First Baseman/Poway, Calif./Poway H.S.) to an ASA to join the Longhorns program heading into the 2019-20 academic year.

Colleen Sullivan

Position/Class: C/1B/Sophomore

Hometown: Poway, Calif.

Previous College: UCLA

High School: Poway H.S.

Travel Ball: Orange County Batbusters

As a Pac-12 Conference All-Freshman Team selection in 2019, Sullivan played in 49 games with 32 starts at either catcher or first base for the eventual NCAA national champion UCLA Bruins. She batted .239 overall with 22 hits, 15 runs scored, nine extra-base hits, including five HR's, and 12 RBIs while walking 28 times (tied for second on the squad) and posting a .421 on-base percentage. The Poway, Calif., native registered four multi-hit and four multi-RBI efforts last season. Included were a 2-for-3, double, HR, two-RBI effort versus Hawai'i, a 2-for-3 performance with two runs scored, a double and two RBIs against Missouri and a 2-for-4 effort with a double, a HR and three RBIs in a matchup at Oregon State. She drew at least one walk in 21 of her appearances and registered a career-high four free passes during an April 6 match-up at Arizona State.

A standout at Poway H.S. and the No. 24 ranked player in FloSoftball's Class of 2018 national recruits, Sullivan was named an Extra Inning Softball First-Team All-American as well as All-California Interscholastic Federation (CIF)-San Diego Section, All-Palomar North County League and league player of the year, SoCal Sidelines All-San Diego and All-Southern California, PGF All-American and FloSoftball Second Team All-Southern California as a senior in 2018. During her final interscholastic campaign, she equaled the All-CIF-SDS record and broke the Poway H.S. mark for single-season HR's (17) while batting .500 overall with a school-record 33 intentional walks and 51 RBIs. She also helped guide her Titans squad to a CIF title as a freshman and a runner-up finish as a sophomore (she didn't play as a junior). She played travel ball for the Orange County Batbusters, finishing as an 18-under Premier Girls Fastpitch (PGF) runner-up in 2018 and a 14-U PGF champion in 2015.
