All-City softball: Moore's Leslie Martini’s work pays off

e previous school record was 15 by Chelsea Garcia.

Martini decided to play slowpitch for the first time last season, saying she wanted to play for the school again with all her friends.

"It was a lot more fun than I thought it would be,” Martini said. "Fastpitch is such an aggressive game. You still want to win in slowpitch, but it’s more relaxed and you have more fun.”

Martini will attend Cameron University in Lawton, and Wakefield said the school has received a steal in getting someone as talented as Martini.

Joining Martini at Cameron will be a trio from Choctaw: infielder Jessica Orr, outfielder Amanda Karth and catcher Shelby Meadows.

"I really liked my visit. The campus is small, but the coaching staff and atmosphere was nice. I hope I can be a part of something special,” Martini said.
