EDMOND, Okla. (Nov. 22, 2012) – Oklahoma Christian softball coach Tom Heath rounded out his 2012 signing class by staying close to home.
Haley Squier, the top pitcher this fall for Edmond Memorial High School’s tradition-laden program, signed a letter of intent Tuesday – the next-to-last day of the NCAA signing period – to play for the Lady Eagles. OC is in the first year of the NCAA Division II membership process.
Squier, a right-hander, helped the Bulldogs finish 23-10 as a senior and was named as the co-pitcher of the year in District 6A-3 as well as an alternate for the Oklahoma All-State team.
“We are very pleased that Haley decided to attend OC,” Heath said. “Haley had a very good senior year pitching for Edmond Memorial. We believe that Haley will continue to be a talented pitcher as she grows and matures into a college softball player.”
This fall, Squier was named as a prep athlete of the week by The Oklahoman after a strong performance in a tournament in Sand Springs, during which she gave up one run and one walk while striking out 29 batters.
After her junior season, she received honorable mention on The Oklahoman’s Big All-City honor teams and was named as the second-team pitcher on the Edmond Sun’s All-Edmond teams.
She joined an OC signing class that included infielder Jordan Chism of Piedmont, pitcher Shea Coats of Tuttle and catcher Niki Davidson of Community Christian School in Norman.
