Omaha head softball coach Jeanne Scarpello has announced her retirement after seventeen seasons at the helm of the UNO program.
Scarpello guided the Mavericks softball program through the transition from Division 2 to Division 1, earning conference Coach of the Year honors in her team's first full season of D1 eligibility.
In that same first opportunity of postseason eligibility, the Mavs earned the Summit League's #2 seed in the conference tournament thanks to their 12-5 in-conference record, before being eliminated in the tournament semifinals.
The Mavs earned 145 victories under Scarpello's leadership at the Division 1 level and 684 wins in her full seventeen seasons.
In a statement on Twitter, Scarpello noted the opportunity to spend time with her family as a primary reason for her retirement.
