Prospective Student-Athlete Information - Women's Softball
We are excited about your interest in the University of North Texas and Mean Green softball.
In three seasons under head coach Tracey Kee, the North Texas softball program has reached record heights and achieved several program records and firsts.
In 2014, Kee took the Mean Green to the most wins in the program’s 12-year history with 31 victories. In 2015, North Texas upset No. 7 Baylor on the road in Waco, the highest ranked team that the Mean Green have defeated in program history and just their second-ever top-25 win. And then in 2016, after a 6-4 start that included a pair of wins over nationally-ranked Baylor, North Texas received votes in one of the national polls for the first time in school history.
Under Kee, North Texas has had first-team All-Conference USA selections in three straight years and six all-conference selections overall in three years, including Kelli Schkade, who was named to the first team as part of her record-breaking season in 2016.
Off the field, North Texas softball graduates Lauren Poole and Madison Thompson were awarded the Jim Castaneda Postgraduate Scholarship in consecutive years, the first and second North Texas athletes to receive the honor in the school's first two years of conference membership.
Quick Hits On North Texas
North Texas won three conference championships in its second year in Conference USA. Individually, 64 Mean Green student-athletes were named all-conference during the 2014-15 school year, three Mean Green athletes received specialty conference awards and two coaches were named conference coach of the year.

Academic Athletic Services
In the Fall of 2005, the academic and compliance staff relocated to the Mean Green Village. Located on Bonnie Brae, the new Student-Athlete Development Center is three times the size of the former academic center. The Center serves as the cornerstone of the Mean Green Village and is only a short walk from the surrounding sports facilities.
