“I want to thank Coach Sherwood for her dedication and service to our University and our student-athletes. We wish her all the best with her future endeavors,” Rountree said.
Sherwood had a record of 38-106 overall and 18-41 in Big Sky Conference play over her three years with the Vikings. Portland State went 14-35 and 7-14 in 2016.
A national search for a new head softball coach will begin immediately.
Portland State closed the 2016 season with five straight losses, eight of nine setbacks overall, including two in the Big Sky Tournament to Idaho State and Montana by a combined 26-8.
