Texas A&M catcher Julia Cottrill enters the 2024 season ranked in the top 10

Davis Diamond will be an exciting place to be in the spring with many new faces ready to make a run at the super regional. It won’t be an easy task as the SEC is loaded with talent and the Aggies are currently projected to finish eighth in the league.

However, a solid showing last year under first-year Head Coach Trisha Ford has her team ranked in the Top 25 across multiple polls. Helping lead the team into the new season is the sixth-ranked catcher in the nation, Julia Cottrill. On top of that recognition, she was the only Aggie to be named the Preseason All-SEC Team and ranked the number one catcher in the conference.

Cottrill was one of my favorite players to watch last season. With vast experience combined with her passionate play, the Aggies are lucky to have a proven leader throughout the 2024 season. We can’t wait to see her excel and propel the Aggies to the next level. Below are Cottrill’s stats from last season.

  • NFCA Third Team All-America

  • NFCA All-South Region First Team honors

  • All-SEC First Team recognition

  • HITS – 51 / AVG – .331

  • RBI – 43

  • HR – 10

Texas A&M will open the season at Davis Diamond when they host the Aggie Classic from February 9 -11th.
