DENISON, Texas (July 8, 2014) – Kelsie Finch, a standout catcher at Grayson (Texas) Community College, has signed a letter of intent to play softball at Oklahoma Christian, OC coach Tom Heath said Tuesday.
Finch, who attended high school at Liberty Christian in Argyle, Texas, will have two seasons of eligibility remaining with the Lady Eagles.
As a sophomore, Finch hit .296 with five home runs and 24 RBIs for Grayson, which finished 27-21 this past spring.
In high school, Finch was selected to play in the Texas Private School Coaches Association’s All-Star Softball Game. She was a first-team pick on the Denton Record-Chronicle’s All-Area Team as a senior in 2012 after hitting .552 with 30 RBIs and was a three-time TAPPS all-district first-team selection.
She is the third player to join OC’s signing class for the 2015 season, along with Sheridan Bond and Madison Nordyke, both of whom played at Edmond North High School.
The trio will join an OC program on the rise. OC went 42-16 in 2014, tying the program record for single-season wins. The Lady Eagles finished as the National Christian College Athletic Association runners-up, matching the highest national finish ever by an OC women’s team.
