DAVIS – In the proud athletic history of Davis High School, there have been more than a fair share of talented athletes come through the halls of DHS to showcase their abilities.

One of those proud programs is the Davis Lady Wolves softball team, who has its own legacy of state tournament appearances, and All-State athletes proudly displayed outside the Davis softball field.

Soon there will be a new name added to the All-State list for Davis, senior standout Sydney Martin.

Following a solid career in the red and white, Martin was named as a member of the Middle West team, and will represent Davis High School at Oklahoma Christian University this June as part of the Oklahoma Fast Pitch Coaches Association All-State game. She will be joined on the team by Sami Skelly and Brooklyn Mason, who will be representing Lone Grove, along with Plainview’s Rylee Keith.

“When anyone in the town of Davis thinks about Sydney, they just know she is a hard working kid,” Davis coach Tyler Lampkin said. “There’s a running joke that there’s a lot of girls on the All-State list who are way more talented than she is. But, I’d put her work ethic up against any of them and probably bet on her to outwork them.”

“She’s been a catcher pretty much the whole time she has been here,” Lampkin added. 

“We had to make the change and put her at shortstop this season. When we took her mask off of her then we immediately became a better team. She became more vocal and became a better leader. We’re very proud of her for this accomplishment.”

Martin was one of two Lady Wolves players this season to be named as a member of the Lake Country Conference All-Conference team along with Brinlee Dulaney.

This season, Martin finished with a .523 batting average to go with a .788 on base percentage along with 26 RBI and 28 stolen bases.

Davis won another district championship this season and made it to the regional tournament under first year head coach Tyler Lampkin. Martin also made it to the state tournament multiple times in her career as a Lady Wolves player in fast and slow pitch softball.

Following the All-State game, Martin will set her sights on a new challenge at Seminole State College, where she will join up with her fellow Davis teammate Jolie Romine.

“I was really excited being named All-State, and just knowing all my hard work has paid off with this,” Martin said. “It was really awesome getting to make it to the state tournament multiple times.”

“Getting to reach a goal I set for myself since I was little is something very special to me,” Martin said about playing at Seminole State. “It’ll be fun to play with Jolie Romine one more time as well. Knowing I have one last chance to represent Davis in fast pitch at All-State means the world to me.”
