Lindsi Glenn started the postseason off right for the Healdton Bulldogs on Monday.

The senior pitcher signed her letter of intent to play softball at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls. Glenn is the first to sign of a 2011 Healdton class that’s expected to have several more players inking with colleges before the school year’s end.

Glenn, a left-handed pitcher/outfielder was 14-3 with a 0.88 earned run average, 98 K, two no-hitters and eight shutouts in 2010. She also batted .340 with 22 RBI in helping Healdton back to the Class 2A championship game for the second year in a row, winning in 2009. Glenn was an All-Ardmoreite Super Team selection as a sophomore and a first-teamer last year.

Glenn, who will pitch at Midwestern State, combined with teammate Maci-Brooke Lambert to form one of the best 1-2 pitching combinations in the state.

“It’s close to home and head coach Brody Tigert is real laid back,” Glenn said Tuesday. “But he pushes his team like (Healdton) coach Bradberry pushes us.”

Glenn added that she’ll get to be coached by one of the best pitching coaches in assistant Kasi Carrol. Midwestern State was 54-10 last year in the Division II Lone Star Conference, missing out on the NCAA Tournament by one game.

Angelo State took two of three from the Mustangs in the super regionals.

Glenn said she wanted to get her decision out of the way early so she could “enjoy the rest of her senior year.” Two of her teammates, Lambert and Katy Fletcher, are expected to sign later this school year. Glenn will be one of five recruits coming in to Midwestern State, the only one from Oklahoma.

“It’s exciting when you make your decision,” Glenn said. “I’m ready to take the next step and play at the college level.”
