Pitt Softball adds sophomore right-hander Adriana Romano to team

Pitt head Coach Jodi Hermanek announced the signing of transfer pitcher Adriana Romano. The Siena transfer totaled 139 K’s and 11 wins last season.

Romano, who enters as a sophomore with three years of athletic eligibility left, spent her freshman season at Siena, where she was the ace of the staff for a team that won 30 plus games in 2022.

A native of Barnegat, N.J., Romano went 11-6 with a 2.45 ERA last season, recording 139 strikeouts with an opposing batting average of .209 in 114.1 innings pitched. She had three shutouts and a save with a 1.25 WHIP.

“It’s exciting to announce the addition of Adriana Romano to our Panther roster,” Hermanek said. “Adriana comes off a freshman season putting out strong numbers that proves she knows how to win. I value her field presence and demeanor in the circle, and the attack she puts into her pitches to go after batters. That type of pitching character goes a long way in our Pitt bullpen and in the ACC.”
