Hempfield grad Taylor Bartlow takes over WCCC softball team

Bill Beckner

A familiar name to the area will take over the softball program at Westmoreland County Community College.

Barely finished with her college playing career, former Hempfield all-section player Taylor Bartlow was named coach of the Wolfpack.

She wrapped up her time with the Robert Morris team in the spring. What is unique about Bartlow is that she played all nine positions for the Colonials throughout her career.

Primarily an outfielder, she said it has been a dream of hers to coach at the college level.

WCCC won the WPCC championship last season.

“I want to use those experiences to help our players and this program add to its accomplishments from last year and previous seasons,” Bartlow said. “I will strive to help our players not only reach their goals on the field but also find success academically. I can’t wait to get started this fall and see what we can accomplish this season.”

Bartlow hit .256 with 15 RBIs, 14 runs and three home runs in 31 games last season.

She started 118 of 147 games in four years at RMU.

Bartlow was a member of Hempfield’s 2015 WPIAL championship team and made three trips to the PIAA playoffs with the Spartans.

Bartlow is finishing her bachelor’s degree in Regular and Special Education at Robert Morris.
