KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – University of Tennessee softball co-head coaches Ralph and Karen Weekly announced this week that senior transfer Ivy Davis has signed an SEC Grant-in-Aid and Institutional Financial Aid Agreement to join the Lady Vol softball program.
Davis, who was the No. 48 recruit by FloSoftball in 2017, spent the previous three seasons at perennial powerhouse Arizona, and started 21 of 25 games as the Wildcats’ first baseman in 2020. The Huntington Beach, Calif., native finished with .305 batting average in the abbreviated season, coming off one of the best offensive showings in her collegiate career. Davis recorded 13 RBI, three homers and finished with a .508 slugging percentage.
“We are thrilled to have Ivy Davis joining the Lady Vols,” said co-head coach Karen Weekly. “She is a natural middle infielder and will bring us much needed experience there. Playing at Arizona and for OC Batbusters in travel ball, she understands what it takes to compete at a championship level.”
Through her three-year stint in Tucson, Ariz., Davis made 87 appearances and 61 starts. She was the quintessential utility player, starting seven different positions in her time with UA.
Co-head coach Ralph Weekly added, “I was impressed by her performance against us in February of this year. She had two hits and played flawless defense.”
Davis will be one of three players from California on the Lady Vols roster next season.
