SULPHUR — Throughout her high school career, Kady Lynch has always held herself to a high standard athletically. Friday morning, she was able to set the bar once again for the next couple years of her life. With her teammates, friends, coaches and family watching on, Lynch officially signed her National Letter of Intent to play college softball for Seminole State College (OK), where she will be joined by her teammate Makella Mobly. When she suits up next fall for SSC, Lynch and Mobly will be joining a roster which includes Lone Grove’s Shelby Stevenson, and former Plainview Lady Indians standout Rylee Keith. “I’m just so excited about this moment,” Lynch said. “I can’t wait to play ball with a lot of other girls I’ve never gotten to play with, and just build new friendships off of that. Coach (Amber) Flores really bought into myself and Makella, and we were just very into Seminole. As soon as we went for a visit we instantly knew that was the college we wanted to go to together.” This season, Lynch made sure she was able to finish her fast pitch career on a high note. In addition to being an important part of the Lady Bulldogs team which made the Class 3A state tournament, she was also named as a member of the Middle West All-State team. Lynch finished this season with a .322 batting average to go with a .379 on base percentage. She totaled 27 RBI’s with 29 hits and two home runs, along with a .985 fielding percentage. For her Sulphur career she hit .347 at the plate with a .428 on base percentage and a .972 fielding percentage. During her junior year, she was named as a member of the All-Ardmoreite softball team, when she hit .373 at the plate with 19 hits and 16 RBI’s along with a .522 on base percentage. Lynch was also a member of the slow pitch state semifinal team this past spring and a member of the Lady Bulldogs basketball team which made the state tournament last season as well. She will be joining a Seminole State program which has had a ton of success in recent years which includes winning 54 games last season with just four losses. “I’m very thankful to have gotten to have all these coaches and fans here today,” Lynch said. “We’re all bonded by sports here in Sulphur. We all support each other, cheer for each other and are always there for one another.”
