Tennessee star and reigning SEC Player of the Year Meghan Gregg was honored by the Georgia House of Representatives on the House floor on Monday.
House Resolution 1126 was introduced during the House’s session on Monday. Authored by Representative Johnnie Caldwell, Jr., the resolution was noted as being for the purpose of “recognizing and commending” Gregg.
Gregg, a Georgia native from the district now represented by Caldwell, earned a standing ovation from House members and those present when she was introduced.
The 2017 SEC Player of the Year, Gregg was a first-team all-American and a top three finalist for National Player of the Year a season ago. In addition to being the conference’s Player of the Year, she also earned her second consecutive all-conference first-team honor.
Gregg leads her team with a .500 batting average to start the 2018 season, with five home runs and twenty-four RBI on the year, in seventeen games.
