Although The University of Texas softball had seen its share of success through the years, the program was becoming somewhat stale. By 2018, their season had ended in regional play each of the last five years.
The Longhorns were ready to get back to their prominence and to the Women’s College World Series. The change started with the hire of Mike White as the Head Softball Coach on June 25, 2018. White was very familiar with the Women’s College World Series, having been there five of the last seven years.
