#9 Kellie Wilkerson, Softball Pitcher/Utility (1999-2002)

When looking for the best softball player in Mississippi State Bulldogs history, the discussion begins and ends with Kellie Wilkerson. Wilkerson did everything for the Bulldogs in her four years, playing, infield, outfield, and closer in her time as a Bulldog, hence the reason is listed as utility. Wilkerson was on either the first or second team NFCA All-American squads all four years in Starkville. She was also named to the Easton All-American Teams in 1999 and 2001. Wilkerson holds numerous school career records at Mississippi State. She has the highest career slugging percentage (.713), on-base percentage (.544), most doubles (61), home runs (44), total bases (529), walks (177), and saves (32). She holds single season record at Mississippi State for RBIs (65 in 1999) and saves (14 in 2002).
