Former Troy softball coach Melanie Davis will be part of the eight-member class of 2017 that will be inducted into the Trojans athletics hall of fame.
Davis spent twenty-one years at the helm of the Trojans program, amassing 780 wins, two conference titles, and a berth in the NCAA regional round in 1996. She is the program's winningest coach.
As softball coach, Davis oversaw the Trojans' move to the Division I level and the construction of the program's new facility in 2014. Davis is already a member of the West Alabama Softball Hall of Fame; Wiregrass Hall of Fame; and the Alabama ASA Hall of Fame.
In addition to her more than two decades as head softball coach, Davis also spent three seasons as the Trojans' head volleyball coach.
Davis is the second softballer to be inducted into the school's hall of fame, while this is the second year in a row that Trojans softball has been represented in the hall of fame election.
The class of 2017 will be inducted in a ceremony on April 15; the class includes Benny Beard (supporter); DeWhitt Betterson (football); Dr. Doug Hawkins (administration); Jerrel Jernigan (football); Johnny Long (band director); Bubba Marriot (football); Frank Sadler (football); and Davis.
