Former BYU ace pitcher McKenna Bull has been named an assistant coach at Utah Valley.
Bull was three times named the West Coast Conference’s Pitcher of the Year and earned all-region honors from the National Fastpitch Coaches Association during each of her four years as a Cougar.
An all-American in 2017, her senior season, Bull finished her playing career with her name atop six all-time program records, including holding the all-time record for complete games (95), wins (107), and strikeouts (978).
In addition to her career records, Bull also holds a host of single-season Cougar records, including wins (34), ERA (1.37), strikeouts (286), and innings pitched (263.2). Bull threw three no-hitters during her career, including one, coincidentally, against Utah Valley.
At UVU, Bull joins a Wolverines program that posted a 16-24 win-loss record in 2017, head coach TJ Hubbard's first year at the helm of the program. The Wolverines went 7-8 in conference play during the year. The squad’s pitching staff assembled a cumulative 5.08 ERA on the season, allowing opponents to hit .342 against them in 253 1/3 innings of work in the circle.
