First Grayson College All-American Softball Player inducted into Viking Hall of Fame
DENISON, Texas (KTEN)- Grayson College President Dr. Jeremy McMillen announced today that former Viking softball player Amy McGowen would be Grayson College's seventh inductee into its sports Hall of Fame.
She'll be honored in a private event on Grayson College's homecoming weekend in November with last year's Region V champion softball team
McGowen now teaches at Willis High School, which is located north of Houston.
She was Grayson College's first-ever All-American in softball back in 2003 after a season where she batted .402, scored 60 runs, and stole 42 bases.
But despite it being nearly 20 years since she played for the Vikings, her legacy is still felt in the program to this day.
"Our softball program has been around and had some success and more success recently," McMillen said. "She laid the foundation for what was to come and to be named All-American is an outstanding accomplishment for her. It's time we recognize her in the Grayson College Viking Hall of Fame."
