“Hitting off Andee is quite a feat,” Scott said. “We realized we could be a pretty decent team after that.”
In addition to the pressure being relieved on her by moving to third, she also made her college decision not long before the season, committing to Oklahoma Christian.
“It was a big weight lifted off my shoulders,” Chism said. “I've been going to exposure tournaments since I was 12 and this was a perfect fit. It was close to home and, even though it's not a D-I, I'd rather go there where it's the right academic fit than a D-I school that didn't have the major I wanted.”
Chism plans to major in physical therapy.
