Tough break for USF softball as 2008 Big East freshman of the year, Capri Catalano, will be out for the 2009 season because of a shoulder injury.

“We are fortunate enough to diagnose a minor situation that our medical staff is on top of and ready to take care of,” said USF head coach Ken Eriksen said. “We will continue with physical therapy for the rest of the spring. We look forward to getting a completely healthy Catalano back for the 2009-10 year.”
