To no surprise the Gregory twins, Lacy and Lindsay, are leading the North Texas softball program.
The juniors were at the top of every offensive category for the Mean Green in 2018. The pair paced Kingwood to the 5A regional semifinals in 2014 and the 6A regional quarterfinals in their senior season of 2015.
At North Texas this season, Lacy Gregory started 51 of the team’s 52 games and hit .329, the second-highest batting average on the team. She led the team in slugging percentage (.625), RBIs (40), total bases (95) and doubles (11), and tied for the team lead with 10 home runs and two triples.
She was second on the team in runs scored (27) and hits (50). The infielder recorded 71 putouts and compiled a .960 fielding percentage.
Coach Tracey Kee, who resigned in mid-May after a 25-27 season (11-12 in Conference USA play) posted this on the team website about Gregory: “Lacy is a utility player who has the ability to hit for average and power. Her inner competitiveness will help our program grow as a whole. Her unselfishness to move to wherever our needs are, shows her desire to always put the team first.”
Lindsay Gregory set the program single-season record and ranked third in the nation with 18 sacrifice bunts. She started 50 games this season, tied for the team lead with two triples, finished second on the team in doubles (9), and was third on the team with a .288 batting average.
She had a nine-game hitting streak from April 4-14, during which time she hit .400 with 10 RBIs.
Kee had this to say about Gregory: “Lindsay’s athleticism and drive will make for a positive future. Her ability to drive the ball to all fields and play multiple infield positions will allow us to continue our quest of having versatile players. She’s a true student of the game who understands the importance of adapting to a program’s goals immediately.”
