Ken LeGrice is in his third season as head coach of the Stonehill College softball team.
In 2012, LeGrice led the Skyhawks to a Northeast-10 Conference (NE-10) Tournament appearance as the no.8 seed and a program record 17 conference wins on the season. LeGrice guided three members of his team - Nicole Eisenmann, Samantha Krantz and Lindsay McKillop - to NE-10 All-Conference Second Team selections. Stonehill finished the season 24-15 overall, one win shy of tying the program mark for most wins in a season.
The Skyhawks started the year with an 8-2 record overall, their best start since 2001. Stonehill also ranked fourth overall in batting average (.305), fifth in on-base percentage (.360) and fifth in earned run average (2.62).
LeGrice was named head coach prior to the 2010 season, after spending five years as a member of the coaching staff. In his first season at the helm, he led the Skyhawks to a 20-19-1 overall record, including a 15-13 mark in the NE-10 to finish seventh in the standings and earn just the third postseason appearance in program history - and first since 2008.
Senior Katy Abarr was recognized for her efforts on and off the field by collecting Capital One Academic All-District I honors. Eisenmann earned All-Northeast-10 First Team and All-Rookie team honors as well.
LeGrice served as an assistant coach from 2005-08 before being promoted to associate head coach prior to the start of the 2009 season. In his eight years with the program, the Skyhawks have won 145 games, and in 2008 qualified for the NE-10 postseason tournament for the first time since the 1996 season.
Before arriving at Stonehill, LeGrice served as an assistant coach at Medfield High School during the 2004 season. From 1998-2001, LeGrice was on the staff at Brockton High School, helping the Boxers capture the Division I State Championship in 2000.
LeGrice, a 1982 graduate of Northeastern University with a degree in criminal justice, is a 24-year veteran of the Brockton Police Department, recently being promoted to leiutenant. He and his family reside in Brockton.
