Justin's World of Softball has learned that Portland State has decided not to renew their contract with head softball coach Barb Sherwood, a move that is expected to be announced within the day.
Sherwood just completed her third season at the PSU helm, amassing a 38-106 overall record and an 18-41 mark in Big Sky conference play.
After doubling the team's win total from eight in her first season to sixteen a year ago, the Vikings took a step back this season, amassing just fourteen wins. They did earn a berth in the conference tournament as the sixth of eight teams in the conference, but were quickly dispensed with an 0-2 record in the double-elimination tournament.
Sherwood presided over fifteen all-conference selections during her tenure at Portland State, including 2015 first-team selection Brittany Hendrickson, who picked up the team's triple crown that season.
Prior to her arrival as Vikings head coach, Sherwood spent seven seasons at Virginia Tech. Her resume also includes stops at Florida State; Wisconsin; and Troy, her alma mater.
