Woodward’s Lizzy Hall – Character Counts Presented by Cowboy Driving Academy

By Corey Heim

Lizzy Hall, a senior at Woodward High School, currently competes as a pitcher for the softball team.

Hall began playing softball nine years ago and has played as a pitcher throughout that time. She was motivated to begin the sport after attending the Women’s College World Series. After watching the athletes compete, Hall realized she wanted to follow in their footsteps and do the same in her future. She began playing the sport and strived to be like those players by practicing every day. Her determination had her play competitive softball where she competed across the country.

When asked about her favorite part about competing she said she loves the thrill of succeeding and the excitement that comes with the competition. She also credits her teammates and father as being her biggest inspiration and influencers.

“My teammates are extremely important to me as we help each other work through our struggles, and are always there for each other through the highs and the lows of the game,” Hall said. “He [my father] has influenced me in the best way possible, and he has shaped me into the player and person I am today.”

Hall has also been an active student in her school community and she is a member of the National Honor Society and was ranked second in her class academically. Beyond her academics, her coaches and educators have praised her for being a strong leader and she has influenced her peers and teachers through her character.

“I’m motivated to be a leader because leaders create more significant contributions to a team, and I want to help my team and friends succeed in any way possible,” Hall said.

After graduating from Woodward next May, Hall is committed to attending Arkansas Tech University where she will continue her softball career at the collegiate level. At ATU, Hall is planning on majoring in pre-law. After completing her bachelor’s degree she hopes to attend law school at the University of Oklahoma.
