SULPHUR — Around Sulphur, when someone says “Mob” in reference to Lady Bulldogs athletics there’s a good chance they are referring to standout Makella Mobly. The Lady Bulldogs athlete has more than earned her impressive athletic resume, having been a multi-time state qualifier in track, softball, as well as being apart of last seasons state quarterfinal girls basketball team. On Friday morning, she was able to add one more very important title to her name: College bound athlete. With her coaches, teammates, friends and family looking on in excitement, Mobly officially signed her National Letter of Intent to play softball for the Lady Trojans of Seminole State College and head coach Amber Flores. Mobly wasn’t alone though in committing her future to the highly successful junior college program, as she will be joined there by teammate Kady Lynch, who also signed her NLI on Friday. “It’s an amazing feeling right now,” Mobly said. “This is something I’ve been working towards since I was eight years old. I’ve been together with Kady since we started T-ball. Now we get to go play together for two more years and it’s just an awesome blessing.” “I love Coach Flores, the coaches and Seminole State in general,” Mobly added. “She played a big part in my decision to go play softball there. I really don’t know where else I’d go to play softball except at Seminole State.” This season, Mobly gave the opposition headaches at the plate as she finished with an impressive batting average of .557, to go with a .605 on base percentage. She totaled 59 hits with 48 runs scored and 14 RBI’s for the season, along with a .948 fielding percentage. She was also named as one of three Lady Bulldogs players to be named a Middle West All-State member. For her career she finished with a .515 batting average with a .548 on base percentage with 251 hits and 196 runs scored. Mobly was also a Lake Country Conference All-Conference selection this season, and was a member of the All-Ardmoreite softball teams her sophomore and junior seasons. Makella said she plans on getting her basics out of the way and majoring in speech pathology in college.
