COLUMBIA, Mo. – University of Missouri softball head coach Larissa Anderson announced Tuesday the addition of graduate assistants Mary Haff and Jaycee Ruberti.

“We welcome both Mary and Jaycee to our Tiger family,” Anderson said of Haff and Ruberti. “The two of them bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from their playing careers at Arkansas and Ohio State, respectively.”

Mary Haff was a four-time All-SEC and NFCA All-Region pitcher at Arkansas (2018-2022) after she compiled a 97-31 record with 15 saves on a 1.85 ERA.

“Everyone in the SEC is familiar with Mary’s highly decorated playing career having had to play against her many times over her four-year career,” Anderson said of Haff. “She brings in a wealth of experience from her playing days at Arkansas and Internationally.”

Haff, a Winter Haven, Florida, native, led the Razorbacks to two SEC Regular-Season titles and an SEC Tournament title while being named an NFCA All-American and the SEC Co-Pitcher of the Year in 2021.

Haff also appeared in four Regionals (three Super Regionals) over five seasons with Arkansas.

Jaycee Ruberti earned All-CAA (Colonial Athletic Association) and NFCA All-Region honors as an outfielder with Hofstra in 2021, batting .380, over three seasons.

“I had the honor of recruiting Jaycee, as she was committed to playing for Hofstra University, but never had the privilege of coaching her,” Anderson said of Ruberti. “So, I’m excited that we are reunited in the coaching profession as she starts a new journey in her career.”  

Ruberti, a Virginia Beach, Virginia, native, then helped the Buckeyes advance to the 2022 NCAA Regional over her final two seasons at Ohio State.

Former Tiger graduate assistants Amber Fiser and Kristin Hallam both graduated with their master’s from Missouri this past May.
