South Alabama’s Samantha Yarbrough Transfers To Auburn
A Sun Belt Conference softball team is losing a player to an SEC program.
Pitcher Samantha Yarbrough, who played one season at South Alabama, is transferring to Auburn.
Last season at South Alabama, as a freshman, Yarbrough appeared in 29 games, including 14 as a starter, going 6-9 a 4.71 ERA over 93.2 innings pitched.
A native of Fairhope, Alabama, Yarbrough prepped at Fairhope High School, where she went 13-2 with a 1.12 ERA as a pitcher, while also hitting .431 with 10 homers, 43 RBI's and 54 runs scored.
Yarbrough, who may also see time as a hitter, will have three seasons of eligibility remaining at Auburn.
South Alabama will now have to replace their top two pitchers from last season, with Yarbrough transferring, and Alexis Reid graduating.
