It could another great season for the North Central Texas College softball team in 2020.
The Lady Lions are picked to finish second in the Northern Texas Junior College Athletic Conference.
The coaches of the Northern Texas Junior College Athletic Conference recently participated in a Coaches' Poll to predict the order of finish for the 2020 Softball season.
NCTC is picked second behind Weatherford College. McLennan Community College is picked third, followed by Vernon College, then Temple College.
NCTC advanced to the Region V North championship game last year before falling to Temple. The Lady Lions will need to replace several key players. They were hit hard by graduation and by several players transferring to four-year universities.
Here are the results of this year's pre-season poll:
1. Weatherford 2. NCTC 3. McLennan 4. Vernon 5. Temple 6. Grayson 7. Cisco 8. Hill 9. Ranger
