Lexie ODanielBOWLING GREEN, Ky. (6/24/18) — Head coach Amy Tudor continues to add depth to the 2018-19 Western Kentucky University softball team as she announced the signing of Christian County High School standout Lexie O'Daniel on Thursday. The Hopkinsville native will join her fellow WKU Softball newcomers on The Hill in the fall.

"Lexie is a strong and versatile athlete," Tudor commented. "She can play multiple positions and will add power to our offense. We are excited to add another athlete to this year's team."

A right-handed pitcher that will also see time as an infielder, O'Daniel finished her senior campaign at Christian County High School with a 15-2 overall record in the circle accompanied by a 2.03 ERA. She registered 132 strikeouts across 96 innings pitched.

At the plate, the 2018 First Team All-State selection hit .392 with 13 home runs and 46 RBI. O'Daniel helped the Lady Colonels to a 37-win campaign and the squad's first region title in six years during her senior season.

Across her prep career, O'Daniel was a six-time All-District Team selection and earned an All-Region nod three times. In postseason play, O'Daniel was twice named to the All-Region Tournament Team. She was selected to the East-West All-Star Team twice.

In the classroom, O'Daniel is just as decorated with seven All-Academic Team accolades to her name. Additionally, she was a mainstay on Christian County High School's Principal's List, the highest academic level of achievement. O'Daniel plans to major in nursing on The Hill.

O'Daniel joins fellow Hilltopper newcomers Taylor Davis (Huntsville, Ala.), Abbie Heischman (Leo, Ind.), Macy Murphy (Murfreesboro, Tenn.), Shannon Plese (Knoxville, Tenn.), Jordan Ridge (Louisville), Sydne Solomon (Lewisburg, Tenn.) and Kennedy Sullivan (Georgetown) in the WKU Softball signing class.
