Meet Coach Sharon Nichols

Sharon Nichols was quite simply the most dominating softball pitcher to ever wear the Orange and Blue. By the time she graduated she held every pitching record, and she still holds 13 Bucknell marks — including five career records. Nichols, a perennial all-conference selection, posted a 0.83 career earned run average, notched 332 strikeouts and had 51 victories in the circle. During her career, she threw four no-hitters and a perfect game, and in 1991 she compiled a streak of 59.2 innings without allowing an earned run. As a senior, Nichols ranked sixth nationally with a 0.38 ERA and compiled a 16-6 mark with eight shutouts.
(Bucknell Hall of Fame Class of 2001)
