“I picked the University of Oklahoma because it felt like my home away from home. From the first time I walked on campus, I knew this is where I wanted to be. I loved everything about the school: the tradition, the campus and, most of all, the coaches. I am looking forward to helping my teammates win another national championship, and most importantly graduating with a degree from the University of Oklahoma.”
Coach Gasso Says
“Lynnsie is someone that has been to plenty of our camps so we’ve grown up with her. Without question she’s the best catcher in Oklahoma and one of the best I’ve seen in the country in the 2017 class. She reminds me a little bit of former Sooner Lindsey Vandever. She’s got a really quick and active arm. She’s very athletic and lively behind the plate. She’s really a complete player because she can hit. She won two consecutive state championships where she delivered the walk-off hit, so she’s been in those championship situations and she’s come through in the clutch.”
