Georgina Corrick, who has been the #1 pitcher on the GB Women’s Fastpitch Team since 2017, is having a dominant season so far this year playing for the NCAA Division 1 University of South Florida Bulls.

As of 12 March, Georgina had a perfect 16-0 record for the season with a 0.07 ERA, having allowed only one earned run in 106 innings while striking out 162 and walking only seven.

Georgina has swept American Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week honours this season, earning all four awards that have so far been given.

On Sunday 6 March, Georgina threw the first perfect game of her career by setting down 15 consecutive batters without allowing a baserunner in a 9-0 five-inning win over Florida A&M – a game that was also the 1000th win in the coaching career of USF and former USA Head Coach Ken Ericksen.

Georgina now also holds the record for complete games in USF history with 82 and she has passed the 1,000 career strikeouts threshold, becoming the second pitcher in USF history to reach a career four-digit strikeout total.

Pitching for GB

Georgina has been a member of the GB Women’s softball programme since 2015, and in 2016 led the GB Under-19 Women to the first-ever European fastpitch gold medal in GB history in the 2016 European Junior Championship in Spain, clinching the title with a 1-0 win against Italy in the final.

Since 2017, Georgina has led the GB Women to bronze medal finishes in the 2017 and 2019 European Championships, an 11th place finish in the 2018 Women’s World Cup in Japan and to the final of the Europe/Africa Olympic Qualifier in 2019, where GB fell one game short of advancing to the Tokyo Olympics.  Complete-game wins by Georgina over the Czech Republic and the Netherlands during the Qualifier were the key to GB reaching the final.

After the college softball season finishes this spring – and USF will have hopes of making a big impact in the playoffs – Georgina will rejoin the GB Women for this summer’s European Women’s Championship in Sant Boi, near Barcelona – the site of her GB Under-19 triumph in 2016.

The team will be looking for a medal to qualify for next year’s Group Stage tournaments leading to the 2024 Women’s World Cup, and Georgina Corrick will once again be the key to GB hopes.

Academic honours

Georgina completed her academic career at USF in 2021, graduating with a degree in marine biology and conservation science, and she was named to the American Athletic Conference All-Academic team every year that she was on campus, a total of four selections.  

She has also been a regular addition to the USF Athletics honor roll and has been a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-American, an award voted on by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

USF Head Coach Ken Eriksen has said, “This is one of the best student-athletes to have ever worn the Green and Gold in any sport.  Georgina is an incredible woman, a powerful softball player, and more importantly an impactful human."
