When it comes to National Signing Day, it’s become a tradition for their to be more than one athlete signing on the dotted line as it pertains to Plainview High School in recent years.

Wednesday afternoon was no different.

Lady Indians golfers Hallie Schultz and Adeline Norton along with Indians football standout Lane Ross each signed their National Letters of Intent to play their respective sports in college at the Plainview High School Commons area.

Norton will be heading to Oklahoma City University, while Schultz will suit up for Redlands Community College in El Reno.

Ross meanwhile will be applying his skills in Durant as a member of the Savage Storm at Southeastern Oklahoma State University.

Schultz and Norton have gotten to be apart of the last two state championships for the Lady Indians golf program, and both were excited to make their future plans official in front of their family, friends and classmates.

“It’s such a relief, and I’m just so happy to go and play golf at Redlands,” Schultz said. “I love how small the college is and I know a lot of people who are going to be there as well. I’m looking forward to this season and competing for an individual state title and hopefully getting another team one in the process.”

As for Norton, she made her verbal commitment to OCU before her junior year, but she was still just as excited to make her college choice official.

“I’m finally done with the process, and getting to have this moment with a teammate and a classmate was very special for me,” she said. “The campus at Oklahoma City is beautiful and it’s known for its academics, which is going to push me in that area, and I’m happy about that. I also know several girls who are on the team so that played a big part for me. It’s exciting to know I’ve already accomplished so much, and that there’s still more to accomplish.”

Lady Indians coach Taylor Howard added that she has loved getting to coach her two newest college signees, and is looking forward to enjoying one last year with them.

“I’ve been with Addie and Hallie since their freshman year,” she said. “I’m so proud of them. They have worked their butts off all season long, and I couldn’t be happier knowing they are going to continue playing in college. We’ve got a lot of young girls on our team, and Addie and Hallie play a big part in laying the foundation for our success and making those girls better.”

As for Ross, this season was one for the books.

Plainview made the state quarterfinals in Class 3A, with Ross being named as a Class 3A All-Star by Class selection.

Ross finished this season with 13 catches for 204 yards with one touchdown.

On defense he totaled 115 tackles with 28 solo and 87 assisted. 

“This is something I’ve dreamed about since I was little, and today it came true,” Ross said. “I’ve been a starter for four years and today all the hard work paid off. I really liked the campus at SOSU, and they have a new coaching staff as well which has me very excited.”
