Terry Keasling was a star player on one of Fullerton College’s greatest softball teams. An All-Conference player, Keasling’s primary position was third base her freshman season in 1979, until the Hornet’s number one pitcher left the team in 1980. Terry’s move to the starting pitching role would pay off big for the Hornet softball team. In 1980 Terry was not only voted to the All-Conference team, but was the Regional Tournament’s most valuable player, and the State Tournament’s most valuable pitcher leading her team to the State Title with a 4-1 victory over Golden West College. In the Regional Tournament Terry had two consecutive one hit games with ten strikeouts in each and a two run double in the championship game. In the State Tournament she had two consecutive two hitters. The total for the playoffs (regional’s and state) were five games, no earned runs, sixteen hits, and forty-nine strikeouts.

Keasling was the first Fullerton College softball player to receive an athletic scholarship (Cal State Fullerton). Terry still holds strike out record for one season at 328 for the Titans. She had one perfect game on May 7, 1982 vs. UCSB. Terry had six no hitters during her college career ranking sixth or higher in strike outs per 7 innings 8.21.

After college Terry continued to play fast pitch in the Women’s Major Division for approximately 15 years, participating in National Championships, Canada Cup, and Olympic Sports Festivals. She still gives pitching lessons to the future softball stars.
