For the first time in program history, North Texas softball is receiving votes in the USA Today/NFCA Division I softball coaches poll. “Team 13”, as the team refers to themselves as, received two national votes in the poll released Tuesday.

If the votes counted North Texas would be ranked No. 33 in the country.

The votes come on the heels of a successful weekend where North Texas defeated nationally ranked Baylor University on the road twice in extra innings on the way to winning the Getterman Classic Tournament. Baylor has since dropped from the national ranks.

Head coach Tracey Kee and company are 6-4 in Kee’s third year in charge of the team. Explosive offense from junior infielder Kelli Schkade and junior outfielder Danielle Gregory is part of the reason North Texas is receiving votes, as the team leads Conference USA and rank in the top-10 nationally in home-runs and triples respectively.

North Texas will look to continue its hot start when it begins a 10-game homestand this weekend when Sam Houston State University, Creighton University and McNeese State University come to visit as a part of the Mean Green Spring Fling.
