A former standout at George Mason and member of the Blue Devil athletics family is back in the Blue and White, as Casey Price was added to the Duke softball coaching staff in 2017 as the director of operations. Price’s primary responsibilities include overseeing the day-to-day operations of the program, including scheduling, compliance paperwork, team travel and all things involving Duke softball camps, while also assisting with a number of other tasks.
Price most recently was an account manager with 3 Birds Marketing and a property assistant with Duke’s Blue Devil IMG Sports Marketing department before joining coach Marissa Young’s staff.
She is also no stranger to the softball field, as Price was a key piece to the George Mason softball program from 2013-16. The outfielder finished her four-year career as a consistent presence on the field for the Patriots, capping her time playing and starting in 187 contests, both top 10 in the George Mason record book.
Price’s final season for the Patriots saw her finish top three on the team in batting average (.316), hits (49), runs scored (26), runs batted in (24), at-bats (155) and putouts (79). She also tallied 15 multi-hit contests, six multi-RBI games and six multi-run showings. She was also a consistent threat to get on base, reaching safely in 38 of her 47 games. For her dominance on the field, Price garnered VaSID All-State Second Team honors.
Junior year for the star outfielder saw her play in a career-high 52 contests, starting every single one and earn Second Team All-Atlantic 10 honors. Price finished with a .301 clip, one of four players on the team to play in 50-plus contests and hit above the .300 mark. She also turned in 44 hits, 32 RBI, 30 runs and two homers in 146 total at-bats. She also turned in 93 putouts and three assists from the outfield. She also dominated in the classroom en route to landing on the Fall 2015 Atlantic 10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll.
Her second season with the Patriots was her hottest at the plate, as Price averaged a career-best .328 at the plate and scored 31 runs while driving in 26. Price was also a star at turning in extra-base hits, tallying four doubles and an A-10 best four triples, leading to a scorching .422 slugging percentage. She also made her presence known as a continuous threat to reach base safely, earning a .432 on-base percentage while dominating defensively as well with 368 putouts, good for second in the conference. Price’s success, as it would throughout her career, extended beyond the field and into the classroom, as she landed on the Spring 2014 Atlantic 10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll.
Price’s rookie season saw her play in 45 games, starting contest and become one of the top freshmen in the league. She tallied 30 hits in 134 plate appearances, finishing with a .224 batting average. She also scored and drove in nine runs throughout the season, while earning five doubles.
Prior to her time on the collegiate circuit, Price was a standout in softball and basketball for four years at Lee-Davis High School. She was a two-time First Team All-District, All-Metro, All-Region and All-State honoree. She was a member of the 2011 Lee-Davis Softball team that captured the AAA State Championship.
