Dotson, Rietkovich Inducted Into Hall of Fame

Former Tennessee all-American Kat Dotson and Ole Miss volunteer assistant coach Katie Rietkovich were inducted into the Savannah [GA] Softball Hall of Fame last week.

Dotson, who played at Savannah Country Day, and Rietkovich, a product of Effingham High School, were the first-ever fastpitch softball players to be inducted into their area’s Hall of Fame.

A three-time Women’s College World Series participant, Dotson earned all-American honors in her freshman season of 2010 at Tennessee, as well as the first of what would be three all-SEC conference honors. She ended her career with a career batting average of .368 and 263 career hits.

Rietkovich began her career at Georgia, where she was part of the 2010 Women's College World Series-participating squad and twice earned conference all-academic honors. She later transferred to the NAIA level, where she starred at South Carolina Beaufort and Reinhardt University. She currently serves as a volunteer assistant coach at Ole Miss.

The induction ceremony for both players was held on Friday, June 23rd.3
