Apparently, there is a new website that is going to start trying to keep up with high school sports stats. I wish it luck because that is a giant undertaking.
The address is okhsstats.com and it gives visitors the following welcome upon arrival.
“Welcome to OKHSStats.com, the unofficial source for team and player statistics for Oklahoma High School teams. Currently, we only have statistics for 2021 Fast Pitch Softball, but will be adding more in the future,” it reads.
At first glance, it seemed like it had a good amount of fastpitch representation from throughout the state so I thought I’d list local players who were among the leaders in many categories.
Ada’s Amaya Frizell was tied for 10th in triples with five. Rylynn Truett of Ada walked 13 times, good enough for fourth place.
Josie Morgan of Ada was credited with seven sacrifice bunts and tied for 10th.
Ada pitcher Bradi Odom’s 18 wins were good enough for seventh. She also coaxed 143 groundouts for a 10th-place finish.
Byng teammates Alexa Thompson and Hannah Boyd each hit five triples and tied for 10th place. Mattie White and McKenzie Alford, both Lady Pirates, each had seven sac bunts and were tied for 10th.
Alford hit four sacrifice flies for third on that list while Boyd added three and was tied for seventh.
Braedy Wardrope of Coalgate hit five triples and was sixth.
CHS pitcher Chloe Brown dominated the 3A stats for the Lady Wildcats. She was first in earned run average at .069. first in strikeouts with 286, sixth in strikeouts per inning at 1.34, first in strikeout to walk ratio at 13.62, first in walks per inning pitched at 0.10. seventh in groundouts at 130, first in flyouts with 203, first in first-pitch strikes at 620, first in number of strikes with 2,087, first in WHIP at 0.71 and first in pitches per inning at 12.87.

Brooklyn Ryan finished with 54 hits and was seventh.
Taryn Batterton hit five home runs, good enough for ninth on the 2A list.
Ryan hit three sacrifice flies and was tied for third, while Willis, Jaycie Prine, Batterton and Triniti Cotanny all had two each.
Jade Sanders of Latta was No. 7 in quality at bat-percentage at 66.39.
Sanders and Batterton were among the leaders in several pitching categories.
Batterton topped the list in ERA at 0.67, while Sanders was fifth at 1.15.
Sanders recorded 16 wins for Latta and was seventh in Class 2A, while Batterton recorded 14 victories and slid into the No. 9 spot.

Jaycee Stringer of Tupelo was No. 2 in sacrifice bunts with 10.
Tupelo hurler Ava Sliger was among the Class B leaders in a number of pitching stats. Her 0.82 ERA was the best in the class.

Harris was No. 1 in first-pitch strikes with 808 and No. 1 in first pitch strike-percentage with 76.73.
Editor’s Note: One area coach told The Ada News that some of the statistics listed on this website are “close but incorrect”. The Ada News also noticed a few discrepancies but decided to publish the story anyway to show how the players from the area stack up against others from around the state.
