Katie Repole is in her second season as an assistant coach with the Virginia softball program.
Repole, who comes to the Cavaliers after completing a playing career at nationally-ranked Louisiana-Lafayette in 2016, brings with her playing and coaching experience at a variety of levels. Repole will work with the outfielders, assist with the offense and also serve as recruiting coordinator for the program.
Repole began her playing career at Illinois, playing two seasons with the Illini at third base. Repole made 66 starts across her two seasons before transferring to Louisiana-Lafayette. After sitting out a season following her transfer, Repole helped the Ragin’ Cajuns to a 46-9 record and a top-10 national rankings last season. Louisiana-Lafayette advanced to an NCAA Super Regional against the eventual NCAA Champion Oklahoma Sooners.
In a coaching capacity, Repole has worked at several instructional clinics across the country with multiple NCAA Division I programs. She has also served as an assistant coach with the Texas Bombers 18U softball team and the Texas Bombers 16U Gold team, a program that has consistently finished among the top teams in the nation with an ASA 16U Gold national championship.
She also worked as a Director of Development with the Texas Bombers organization, working with athletes from all 52 teams and assisting members of the program in the recruiting process.
