Former Charger Worley joins GHC softball coaching staff
Georgia Highlands College softball has announced Karlie Jarrett Worley as its first full-time assistant coach in program history.
Worley comes back to GHC from Berry College where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and secondary education while being a student-athlete and student-worker with the nationally ranked softball program. Off the field, Worley helped with scouting opponents and game day statistical analysis. On the field, Worley was a utility player for the Vikings with a career batting average of 0.350. On March 18th, Worley was named Louisville Slugger/NFCA National Player of the Week after batting 0.817 and slugging 1.143 against conference opponent Suwannee.
No stranger to GHC Softball, Worley was a member of the Chargers inaugural softball program in 2012. A NJCAA 1st Team All-Region selection as a sophomore, Worley also graduated with honors earning an A.S. in Mathematics. On top of her efforts on and off the field, Worley worked 19 hours a week in the softball office helping with all facets of the softball program.
Head Coach Melissa Wood states, "Cody and I are excited to have Karlie join our coaching staff. As alumni, she's familiar with our softball program and understands the hard work required to be successful at the JUCO level. Karlie will be able to hit the ground running and we look forward to her helping take our team to new heights."
On top of her coaching duties at Highlands, Karlie plans to pursue a master’s degree in Math Education. Karlie lives in Summerville, Georgia with her husband Dillon and their two dogs Goose and Daisy.
