Mean Green Softball Releases Fall Schedule
North Texas Home Opener Sunday, Oct. 9
DENTON – North Texas head softball coach Tracey Kee has released the team’s 2016 fall schedule, which runs through the month of October and features five home games.
The Mean Green will open the fall season with a home doubleheader on Sunday Oct. 9 versus West Texas A&M at 1:00 pm. After a three game road trip, they’ll return to Lovelace Stadium on Oct. 20 for their second home game versus against Weatherford. Their fall season then concludes with a home doubleheader on Oct 28 against North Central Texas College.
The team’s three road games begin with the short drive east along University Dr. to Texas Women’s University for a doubleheader on Oct. 14. Then three days later, North Texas will play at the University of Oklahoma on Oct. 17.
North Texas is looking to build off last year’s 22-win season that included victories over a nationally ranked Baylor team. Leading the charge will be 2016 Conference USA first-team selectee Kelli Schkade and ace starting pitcher Jessica Elder. Both return to Denton for their respected senior season.
Admission to the North Texas fall home games are free.
