WKU Softball head coach Amy Tudor has announced the addition of junior college-transfer Maggie Trgo to the Hilltopper program. Trgo joins the Red and White from the College of Central Florida and will be eligible to compete immediately for the Hilltoppers.

“We are excited to add another left-handed hitter to our lineup,” Coach Tudor shared. “Maggie had an outstanding sophomore year and performed very well at the NJCAA National Tournament. Both her bat and experience will aid our outfield as well as our offense.”

Hailing from Lithia, Fla., Trgo earned 2019 NJCAA Second Team All-American honors from the NFCA and helped the Patriots to a 58-11 overall record that included a deep run in the NJCAA Championship. CF advanced to the tournament’s quarterfinals before dropping its first game in St. George, Utah, and ultimately bowed out after a setback in the consolation semifinals.

Across the 2019 season, Trgo appeared in 63 games while slugging .438/.513/.642 with the Patriots. She connected for 71 hits – 16 doubles, four triples and three home runs – while scoring 54 runs. The outfielder knocked in 40 runs while drawing 25 walks and swiping seven bases.

During her second year at the College of Central Florida, Trgo collected numerous accolades in addition to her All-America honors including: First Team All-Conference, First Team All-State, First Team All-Region (NFCA) and All-Tournament Team recognition from the NJCAA Championship.

As a freshman, Trgo owned a slash line of .354/.451/.465 with 35 hits and 25 RBI across 51 games played. The Sunshine State native recorded nine doubles and a triple while stealing seven bags.

The WKU newcomer played her prep ball at Newsome High School in Lithia, Fla., from 2014-17.

Trgo bats left-handed while throwing right-handed. She plans to major in physical therapy on The Hill.

Set to join Trgo at WKU this fall is fellow transfer Princess Valencia along with incoming freshmen Madeline Rider, Madeline Harris, Taylor Sanders, Tatiasha Webster, Carli Crowder and Brylee Hage.
