There was little doubt that Little Axe's Andee Frazier was going to at least try playing softball.

Her parents both played the sport, and her older sister played.

“I think we were kind of forced to play at first, but softball is one of those things we fell in love with,” Devon Frazier, Andee's older sister, said. “We fell in love with it and just didn't look back from there.”

They certainly didn't. Devon pitched for Little Axe and now plays at St. Gregory's.

In her senior year this season, Andee led the school to its third consecutive state title.

She went 28-9 with a 1.00 ERA and 355 strikeouts in 239 innings to earn The Oklahoman's Little All-City Player of the Year honors.

“It was amazing finishing out on top and the way everybody else dreams it would end,” Frazier said. “I knew it was going to be a good season, I just didn't know that it'd be this good.”

For Andee, it was Devon's pitching that led her to the position.

“I remember watching her pitch when she was 10 and under and I thought that was pretty cool,” Andee said.

As a freshman, Andee couldn't get to the circle because Devon already had that spot.

“It was great having a role model in high school, someone to look up to and follow,” Andee said. “It made it even better that it was my sister.”
