This season when the Davis Lady Wolves hit the field in slow pitch softball, it was almost certain Jolie Romine was going to make an impact.

And what an impact her swing would make against opponents.

Romine left her mark on the DHS softball program this season, finishing her senior year with impressive numbers on the field and off as well.

Sure she managed to register a .655 batting average to go with a .671 on base percentage.

There was also the small matter of smashing 29 home runs this season to go with 61 runs batted in.

Perhaps the even more startling statistic is Romine’s career slow pitch numbers.

As a member of the Davis Lady Wolves, she finished with a .596 batting average, .602 on base percentage, 193 runs batted in and 79 home runs.

All of this while managing to maintain a 3.8 GPA, as well as be a member of the Governor’s Academic Honors Club with the Chickasaw Nation, and land a spot on the Superintendent’s Honor Roll. 

She was also named as a member of the Middle West All-State teams in both fast pitch and slow pitch softball.

It was because of her outstanding performances this season that Jolie was selected as the Most Valuable Player for the 2017 slow pitch season.

“Receiving this award is an honor and a privilege for me,” Romine said. “Slow pitch is all about seeing the ball and letting it go deep, and that’s what I tried to do a lot of this season.”

While the Davis Lady Wolves fell short of being the third school this year to do the double of making the fast pitch and slow pitch state tournaments, Romine made her final district tournament one to remember at Healdton.

Davis managed to sweep its way to a district title, defeating Hartshorne and the host Healdton Lady Bulldogs. It was Romine’s performance though which left people talking and impressed.

In the opening contest, Romine hit a grand slam in a 9-0 victory over Hartshorne. Then in the district finals, she led off games one and two with home runs. She failed to reach base only one time, and was intentionally walked numerous times.

“Davis softball has meant more to me than I could ever express in words,” Romine said. “I’ve learned so many lessons and experiences. Nothing is better than putting on a Davis Lady Wolves uniform and playing for the Lady Wolves. This season it was all about coming together as a team and doing a job for your teammate right next to you. I trusted my teammates and believed they wanted it as much as I did.”

The next step for Jolie is playing college softball at Seminole State College, where she will be in the same conference as her Lady Wolves teammate Macie Buckaloo, who will be at Connors State College starting this fall. Romine will be majoring in social work, as she follows in her mother’s footsteps.

“My mom has made me into the player and the person I am today,” Romine said. “She is a very strong, determined and hard working woman. I’m very thankful for the huge impact she has made on my life.”

“I had a cousin (Casady Webb) who went to Seminole State for a semester and loved it,” Romine added. “The girls, coaches and the campus were great. The experience is going to benefit me greatly and prepare me for the next level.”
