Central Cabarrus Graduate Crystal Cox (2002) Named to Softball Hall of Fame
Apex, NC – On Feb. 2 Crystal Cox became the first player and the first female to be inducted in the North Carolina Softball Hall of Fame. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Cox was the face of her sport in Cabarrus County, and quite possibly the state, at a time when the fastpitch variety of high school softball was just catching on. Cox led Central Cabarrus to 3A state championships in 2000 and 2001 and another title game appearance in 2002. She threw up gaudy numbers along the way, setting records that still stand. In the state athletic association record book, Cox is first in career strikeouts (1,455), perfect games (17), no-hitters (37), and innings pitched (747.2). She holds several pitching records at UNC and is 34th on the NCAA Division I career strikeout list with 1,205.
