We're getting a lot of Tincher & Pauly pitching students

Weaver, Rayle and Harris (another '20 recruit) all got pitching instruction from Tincher while Molly Grube & Clare Z went to Rick Pauly. Both are considered among the top pitching instructors in the country and are based in Va. The Hokies PC, Gillis, has been steering recruits away from Tincher and I don't think they have any Pauly students committed or in the pipeline.

Not that there aren't other good pitching instructors out there and as long as Rochard's arm doesn't fall off from pitching 300+ innings a year they are fine for the time being but not getting pitching recruits from Va instructors that send lots of students to D1 schools could hurt them at some point. Ironically, Rochard was recruited to VT by Angela Tincher.

As a hitter, being short when combined with strength, athleticism and a good swing is an advantage. It gives opposing pitchers a lot less high & low strike zone to work with.
