BUFORD PIPELINE

  • Redshirt seniors JoJo Hyatt and Arielle Oda enter their sixth year with the Clemson Softball program in 2024
  • The duo both attended Buford HS in Buford, Ga. and signed with the Tigers during their senior year
  • The two joined the program in the fall of 2018 as two of the first-ever members of the softball program and participated in practice during Team 0’s initial year
  • As members of the inaugural season in 2020, these two have been a part of every historical milestone Clemson has had (from the stadium being built, to being shutdown in 2020 because of COVID, to winning an ACC Championship in 2021, to hosting a Regional and making Super Regionals in 2022 & 2023)
  • The two are looking to help Team 5 ‘Knock Down the Door’ during the 2024 season by making it a step farther than this team ever has before
  • To do this, Oda has been a key contributor to the 2024 lineup by starting in 31 games. She has racked up a .447 on-base percentage with 23 hits and 14 walks
