Prospective Student-Athlete Information - Softball
We are excited about your interest in the University of North Texas and Mean Green softball.
The 2012 Mean Green softball team won eight of its last
10 games to record its second winning season in school history at 28-26-1.
North Texas entered the conference tournament in Florida on
a six-game winning streak as the No. 4 seed. After dropping the opening game
against WKU, North Texas responded with two wins and lost in the semi-finals to
top-seeded Louisiana-Lafayette. The third-place finish tied a program best.
The 28 wins were the second-most victories compiled in a
single-season in school history and the 26 losses the second fewest. Only the
2010 team accomplished more than the 2012 squad. In conference play, North
Texas set a program record with 13 wins.
Quick Hits On North Texas
A member of the Sun Belt
Conference, North Texas has captured 14 conference championships since 2001.
Individually, 58 Mean Green student-athletes were named All-Sun Belt Conference
during the 2010-11 school year. This past season, the Mean Green finished in
the top three at conference championships in six sports, including three
third-place finishes for the Mean Green track & field teams. The volleyball
team won a share of the West Division title, while the men's basketball team
advanced to the conference championship game for the second straight year.
In 2010-11, both golf teams saw
postseason play. The men's and women's golf teams received at-large bids to the
NCAA Regional Tournament after posting record-breaking seasons. The men
finished in a tie for second at the conference tournament and finished in the
top 5 in nine of their 10 regular season tournaments. The women finished fourth
in the conference tournament and won four regular-season tournaments.
The men's basketball teams
have won at least 20 games for five consecutive years, and the soccer program
continued its winning tradition by posting its 16th straight winning
season in 2010. The swimming and diving team posted its third straight
third-place finish at the conference tournament.
