Jenna Kean, a junior outfielder, has been a steady force for Arizona, with a career batting average of .297. However, even with raising her batting average each season, Kean saw her playing time reduced as Arizona added more and more outfield talent.
Now, Kean has entered her name in the transfer portal as of Wednesday afternoon, bringing the count to three players who are transferring out of the program, the other two being Carli Campbell and Ivy Davis.
With the transfer of Kean, Campbell and Davis, Mike Candrea’s roster in 2021 is now down to a potential 24 players, including incoming freshmen and all six seniors returning after their eligibility was restored because of the COVID-19 pandemic cutting the season short. The following is what Arizona’s roster looks like (note that senior catcher Dejah Mulipola is slated to be part of Team USA softball in the Olympics, which were postponed until next year).
Arizona Softball 2021 RosterNotes: Players without years listed are incoming freshmen. Seniors listed are returning because the NCAA has allowed another year of eligibility due to the 2020 season canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
