Janice Savage, Appalachian State Part Ways

Appalachian State has elected to part ways with head coach Janice Savage, electing not to renew the contract of the three-year coach.

Savage, who finished her third season at the helm of the Mountaineers by missing the Sun Belt tournament. She was 39-114 during her tenure, including a 5-66 mark in Sun Belt conference play.

The Mountaineers won just two conference games in 2017, both of them over UT-Arlington, marking the first conference series win during Savage's tenure. The program's fourteen wins in 2017 tied for the most in a single season during her time at the helm.

Prior to joining Appalachian State, Savage had been head coach at Delaware State, where she was named MEAC Coach of the Year at one point in time. Her resume also includes stops as an assistant at Delaware State, prior to her stint as head coach, as well as Bowling Green and North Florida.

As a Delaware State alum, Savage continues to hold the program playing record for pitching strikeouts and, as of her 2012 induction, is a member of the DSU Athletics Hall of Fame.
