MOORE — Destinie Lookout likes a challenge, but she also wants to have some fun.

That’s what slowpitch softball was to the Westmoore pitcher the past three years, while also turning into a display of her power at the plate.

“I didn’t want to look at it as a challenge,” Lookout said. “If I did bad, it was OK. If I did good, great. Slowpitch was fun for me, and that’s what I wanted it to be.”

This season, she took her game to a whole new level with a batting average mostly seen in video games at .732, while hitting 31 home runs and driving in 86 to earn The Oklahoman’s All-City Player of the Year honors.

“She improved every year,” Westmoore coach Steve Schwarz said. “She went from being a shy kid to really becoming more dedicated and more hardworking. You can really tell the last year or two she really kicked it in gear.”

Lookout, who has signed to play fastpitch at Oklahoma as a corner infielder, said she increased her focus this season while guiding the Jaguars to the Class 6A semifinals.

Her numbers increased as a result.

The 86 RBIs are 26 more than last season when she was named to the All-City first team. She also scored 22 more runs this season, crossing the plate 70 times.
