Dunn continues softball success

Changes were evident in Regan Dunn’s first collegiate softball season with the Sam Houston State University (SHSU) Bearkats. The 2018 graduate of Cuero High School, who helped lead the Lady Gobblers to their first two trips to the regional finals in 2016 and 2018, was the number two pitcher in her freshman season and didn’t have many chances to hit, but Dunn made the most of her role behind one of the top pitchers in the country.
As her second season with the Bearkats approaches, she is actively preparing for a breakout season. All that being said, Dunn was exceptional in the pitching rotation for SHSU. She finished the season with a record of 9-5 in 28 appearances, including 13 starts, with an earned run average (ERA) of 2.22. The move from 4A high school softball to the NCAA Division I ranks is no small feat, but Dunn has always welcomed the challenge. The tight knit group she played with made the transition almost seamless.
“They always say it’s at a whole new level when you get to college,” Dunn noted. “You have that in the back of your mind, but you don’t realize how big of a jump it is until you get there. I felt like with the team, they made it a lot easier. It was a whole family setting, so that made the adjustment easy and allowed our success.”
