TUCSON – Arizona head coach Mike Candrea has signed two recruits for the 2015 class, Chino, Calif., native Patricia Parks and Ashleigh Hughes, from Antelope, Calif.

Both players will provide an immediate impact for UA at a variety of positions. Parks pitches and can play first base and outfield while Hughes can play the infield or the outfield.

Coach Candrea says: "Trish is an outstanding athlete that will be able to contribute to the Wildcats both in the circle and offensively. She's quiet, takes care of business, a hard worker and very coachable. She throws 62-64 with a lively arm. She attends Chino Hills H.S. and presently has a 3.6 GPA."

 

Parks says: "I have decided to attend the University of Arizona because I have been an Arizona fan for as long as I can remember. Watching Arizona in the College World Series year after year has provided me motivation to the best player I can be. To play for Coach Candrea and the rest of the coaching staff is like a dream come true for me. I have visited the campus multiple times and each time that I visit, I am reassured that this is the school for me. I am looking forward to becoming a better player and playing with the best of the best, against the best of the best. This team is truly talented and I can't wait to hit the field to play alongside everyone. I am so excited to join the Wildcat family."

 

Ashleigh Hughes

Hughes says: "I chose Arizona because of the people and the amazing coaching staff; it felt like a place I could call home. I am most excited to be a part of the incredible tradition of the university and the softball team at Arizona."
