Kingfisher’s Olivia Wilcox – Character Counts Presented by Cowboy Driving Academy

By Ryan Stone

Olivia Wilcox is a junior on the Kingfisher High School fast-pitch team. Wilcox pitches for the Jackets and was proud of the strides she took during this season.

“I feel like my season has gone very well and I improved a lot throughout the season, the result of us not making it to districts wasn’t what we wanted, but I do feel I got stronger this year,” said Wilcox.

Wilcox also had a great season at the plate hitting just under .400 in the cleanup spot for Kingfisher. She noted that a big improvement for her this season was her mental approach.

“This season I got a lot mentally tougher,” said Wilcox, “not everything is going to be given to you and I learned that quick this year, so I feel like I just started coming mentally tougher during games.”

Wilcox’s mentality is also important to the way she pitches.

“I always had a coach that said go up with the mentality that the batter doesn’t belong in that box with you, so I just try to go up there with the attitude that I’m going to strike everyone out no matter if it’s tough or not,” said Wilcox.

Olivia also occasionally plays first and third base. Character is something that means a lot to Wilcox.

“Character to me is how someone presents themselves and works with others,” said Wilcox, “also just how you are not just when people are watching, but also, I think it’s having sportsmanship and also how you handle yourself in the real world.”

Wilcox also plays golf for Kingfisher and was the four-bag on the Spring 2019 Regional Championship team that also placed fifth at State. She currently holds a 4.0 GPA and is a member of NHS, FCA and Student Council.
