Jeanne Arbuckle | Head Coach | Softball | Marietta College

Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

At Marietta College we’re looking for student-athletes who excel both in the classroom and on the field of play. We look for athletes who exhibit sound softball fundamentals along with a positive attitude and a desire to get better. We’re looking for players who possess strong leadership skills and who love to compete.


Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?

We have numerous success stories of players who went from role players in their freshman year to becoming impact players at some point in their collegiate career. These players tend to be self-motivated and driven. Their sport is the second priority after academics and they work hard all year long as they strive to be the best they can be both with softball and with their academic pursuits.
