LUBBOCK, Texas – Former Texas Tech standout Brooke Scott returns to Lubbock as a volunteer assistant coach, head softball coach Adrian Gregory announced Thursday.
"We are very excited to welcome Brooke Scott back home," Gregory said. "Brooke is an extremely hard worker and was an integral part of setting our culture as an athlete. She is greatly respected by our players and will add an immediate positive impact to our staff!"
Scott returns to Lubbock after competing overseas as both a player and a coach. Most recently, she played for Atletico San Sebastian in Spain, winning both a national title and the Queens Cup. Her travels also took her to New Zealand, playing for Otahuhu Premier Club and coaching with Auckland Softball Association.
After redshirting a year at UCF, Scott came to Texas Tech for the 2013 season and immediately earned playing time, appearing in 41 games with 26 starts as a redshirt freshman. She was elected captain her junior and senior seasons, starting all 105 games at shortstop her final two years.
A versatile athlete, Scott hit .239 her last two seasons, compiling 54 hits, nine doubles and five home runs. She knocked in 20 RBI while scoring 47 runs of her own over that time and proved a strong fit for Gregory's style of play, drawing 23 walks and stealing 22 bases.
Scott was Academic All-Big 12 from 2014-16 and graduated with her bachelor's degree in 2015. She later earned a master's in Sport and Fitness Administration/Management in 2017 while working as a graduate assistant on the Red Raider staff.
A native of Broken Arrow, Okla., Scott was a four-year letterwinner at Broken Arrow High School, leading the Tigers to the Oklahoma Class 6A State Championship in 2008 and 2009. She was a four-time all-conference selection and earned all-state and all-region honors her senior year.
