 Despite the 2020 Chattanooga Mocs softball season coming to a premature halt due to COVID-19, statistics for individuals and teams will still count towards the career historical record books as announced by the NCAA statistical offices earlier this month.

However, no individual NCAA statistical category champion will be awarded or recognized in the record books. No averages, percentages and per-game single-season categories will be eligible for single-season records in 2020.

Of note, sophomore Emily Coltharp led the entire Southern Conference with a .415 batting average this season while senior Celie Hudson led the league with a 1.92 ERA.
Coltharp becomes the fourth Moc in program history to lead the conference in batting average at the season's end.

Hudson marked back-to-back years in which a UTC pitcher paced the league's ERA category after junior Allison Swinford earned the crown in 2019. Hudson has racked up 53 career complete games, sixth-most in program history and 15th most among all active NCAA DI pitchers.

Below is a list of a few notable statistics, both single-season and career, updated through the shortened 2020 season.
