Bobcat Softball Alum to Head Local High School Program

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Former Georgia College corner infielder Kori Pickowitz (2008-09) was recently named head coach of the softball team at local private school John Milledge Academy. 

Pickowitz spent two seasons in a Bobcat uniform after transferring from Young Harris College. She was a starter at third, first and designated player for teams that advanced to the NCAA Tournament in both her seasons. She was also a member of the 2009 GC squad that won the school’s first PBC Tournament Championship.

A native of Keller, Texas, Pickowitz and her younger sister Kati Pickowitz (2008-11) both were student-athletes for Bobcat softball. 

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 10 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
