Former Richlands High School star Mac Osborne announced via social media on Sunday that she was transferring to Arizona State.

The right-handed pitcher spent the past two seasons at Virginia Tech and went 4-1 with a 4.20 ERA in 21 games (six starts) for the Hokies. She pitched in relief in NCAA Tournament games against Miami of Ohio and Florida in 2022.

Arizona State went 43-11 last season and underwent a coaching change as Megan Barlett was announced as head coach of the Sun Devils on June 22.

Osborne was the Bristol Herald Courier Player of the Year twice while at Richlands and led the Blue Tornado to the 2019 VHSL Class 2 state title.
