The Alabama softball team's 2024 season is over, and it ended in productive fashion with the program's 15th trip to the Women's College World Series in Oklahoma City. The Crimson Tide finished with one win and two losses on college softball's biggest stage, splitting games against UCLA and Duke before losing to SEC foe Florida to wrap up the season.

Despite the success of the postseason, which included a 3-0 sweep of the latest iteration of the Tuscaloosa Regional and an upset win on the road against No. 3 seed Tennessee in the supers, the offseason waits for none. For the Crimson Tide program, the transition to the 2025 season in regards to roster turnover has already begun. Alabama has already made an addition, but even after considering those whose eligibility has expired, everyone else from the 2024 team coming back is not a done deal.

Transfers In:

  • Alexis Pupillo, catcher/utility (Northern Iowa)- A former NFCA Second Team All-Midwest Region honoree, Pupillo announced on May 27 that she would be transferring to Alabama with two seasons of eligibility remaining. She hit .324 with 19 home runs, which would have led the Crimson Tide team this past season.
  • Catelyn Riley, pitcher (Ole Miss)- Riley announced her commitment on June 13 with one year of eligibility remaining. She went 4-7 with a 2.81 ERA in 2024.
  • Emily Winstead, pitcher (UNC Wilmington)- Two-time CAA Pitcher of the Year with a 2.26 career ERA and 402 strikeouts. She announced her commtiment on June 17.

Transfers Out:

  • Kenleigh Cahalan, shortstop- The Alabama native and Hewitt-Trussville product entered the portal fewer than 24 hours after the official end of Alabama's season, per a report from D1Softball's Justin McLeod. Cahalan, who just completed her sophomore season and made two trips to Oklahoma City, posted a .296 batting average with 30 RBIs in 2024. She has nine career home runs and was an All-SEC Second Team honoree this past season. Committed to Florida on June 22.
