Valerie Cagle is a redshirt junior pitcher and infielder for the Clemson Tigers softball team. Cagle led the charge as a pitcher/utility for the third straight year, earning First Team All-American honors after being named to the Second Team in 2021. Cagle, a USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year Top Three Finalist, has continued to accumulate accolades this season.
Valerie Cagle was born on January 7, 2002, as the daughter of Mark and Maria Cagle. She is a native of Yorktown, Virginia. At the moment, she is majoring in health science with a focus on preprofessional health studies. She enrolled at Clemson in 2019 as a freshman.
Valerie Cagle, a resident of Yorktown, Virginia, was unable to join a high school team because she was home-schooled. She played travel ball for the Hanover Hornets, which attracted the attention of college scouts. She hit.525 with eight home runs and no earned runs allowed in 57 innings during her final season with that squad.
Cagle was all prepared to enroll at the University of Delaware when the Blue Hens hired a new head coach, forcing her to reopen her search. Kyle Jamieson, the associate head coach at Clemson, had recruited her while he was the head coach at Furman, and the Tigers benefited from their association.
