KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The NCAA's ruling that seniors in spring sports are eligible to return for one more year of eligibility means Chelsea Seggern's softball career may not be over just yet. But the career she’s already delivered on Rocky Top is deserving of a Curtain Call.

Seggern has played both middle infield positions spectacularly during her time at Tennessee. She stepped into the lineup right away as a freshman, helping the Lady Vols reach the Super Regionals.

She really grew into a star as a junior. That’s when she hit .366 with six home runs for Ralph and Karen Weekely’s team.

Seggern was looking to go out with a bang this season. She had started all 23 games for the 14-9 Lady Vols when the season was stopped due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She was tied for the tam lead in batting average at .403, and led the team with five home runs and 17 RBI.

It's been a great run for Seggern at UT. Hopefully she can finish it in proper style next year.
