Last year she stood in the opposite dugout opposing Lovejoy. Now she’s coaching the Leopards on the softball diamond.

Softball coach Brittany Lee was familiar with Lovejoy before applying for the open coaching position as she coached at North Forney for three years and spent a year at Coppell.

“We were actually in the same district as Lovejoy and played against them [while at North Forney],” Lee said. “Throughout coaching, I got to know [former head coach Jeff] Roberts, and I always knew what a great program this was.”

Lee said her choice to join the softball program went beyond the diamond.

Lee has experience coaching at North Forney and Coppell.

“Coming in to being a head coach, I didn’t want to just go anywhere just to get some head coach experience,” Lee said. “I wanted to find a high school where I could really make a home. The parents are great, the kids are phenomenal here, and just the high school itself is just a really high achieving place.”

Lee played softball as a child and said the mentors she met along the way inspired her to be a coach.

“I had some really good coaches growing up that took really good care of me, and they just really made a difference in my life,” Lee said. “I knew that I wanted to have the opportunity to do that someday and just give back to the people and the profession that did so much for me.”

Roberts said he is confident in Coach Lee and has great expectations for the softball program this year.  

“Coach Lee is a young and energetic coach who will get the young ladies to perform at a very high level,” Roberts said. “Coach Lee has a passion for the game of softball, and that will be seen in the way she coaches our team here. I am excited to watch all of the young ladies compete this spring.”

A lot of things changed for the team this year, including a much harder offseason, but that’s what makes Lee even more excited this year.

“I came in with a really tough offseason program,” Lee said. “The girls have just taken to it really well and they’re working really hard. There is so much potential and I feel like every day I’m just so much more ready for [the season] to be here.”
