Arizona’s Alyssa Palomino-Cardoza chases down a sinking line drive off the bat of Oregon State’s Xiao Gin in a game earlier this season at Hillenbrand Stadium.

 Alyssa Palomino-Cardoza is joining the coaching ranks.

The former Arizona Wildcats standout is joining Oregon's coaching staff as a volunteer assistant, the Ducks said Monday afternoon. 

The Mission Viejo, California native, finished her college career by helping lead the Wildcats to a Women's College World Series appearance, her second trip to Oklahoma City in six seasons. 

In her final season, the two-time All-American tabbed a .306 batting average with 44 hits, 35 RBI and eight home runs.
