BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – WKU Softball head coach Amy Tudor has announced the addition of
junior college-transfer Maggie Trgo to the Hilltopper program. Trgo joins the Red
and White from the College of Central Florida and will be eligible to compete
immediately for the Hilltoppers.
“We are excited to add another left-handed hitter to our lineup,” Coach Tudor
shared. “Maggie had an outstanding sophomore year and performed very well at the
NJCAA National Tournament. Both her bat and experience will aid our outfield as well
as our offense.”
Hailing from Lithia, Fla., Trgo earned 2019 NJCAA Second Team All-American honors
from the NFCA and helped the Patriots to a 58-11 overall record that included a deep
run in the NJCAA Championship. CF advanced to the tournament’s quarterfinals before
dropping its first game in St. George, Utah, and ultimately bowed out after a
setback in the consolation semifinals.
Across the 2019 season, Trgo appeared in 63 games while slugging .438/.513/.642 with
the Patriots. She connected for 71 hits – 16 doubles, four triples and three home
runs – while scoring 54 runs. The outfielder knocked in 40 runs while drawing 25
walks and swiping seven bases.
During her second year at the College of Central Florida, Trgo collected numerous
accolades in addition to her All-America honors including: First Team
All-Conference, First Team All-State, First Team All-Region (NFCA) and
All-Tournament Team recognition from the NJCAA Championship.
As a freshman, Trgo owned a slash line of .354/.451/.465 with 35 hits and 25 RBI
across 51 games played. The Sunshine State native recorded nine doubles and a triple
while stealing seven bags.
The WKU newcomer played her prep ball at Newsome High School in Lithia, Fla., from
Trgo bats left-handed while throwing right-handed. She plans to major in physical
therapy on The Hill.
Set to join Trgo at WKU this fall is fellow transfer Princess Valencia along with
incoming freshmen Madeline Rider, Madeline Harris, Taylor Sanders, Tatiasha Webster,
Carli Crowder and Brylee Hage.
