After stepping up throughout her Chickasha career, Lynnsie Elam has continued to do the same at the next level.

Elam just finished her sophomore season at the University of Oklahoma.

Elam became a force behind the plate during the season. According to OU, she became one of just two Sooners to finish a season with a fielding percentage of 1.000.

Teams also found it tough to steal against Elam.

The Sooners advanced to the championship of the Women's College World Series and finished second to the UCLA Bruins after falling in two games.

Elam started 61 games for the Sooners as a sophomore and also came up big on the offensive side several times throughout the season.

She finished the season with five home runs, one of which came in OU's series-clinching win against Northwestern during the postseason. OU ended up sweeping the Wildcats to advance to the WCWS.

The home run against the Wildcats was OU's 108th of the season, which broke an NCAA record.

Elam's double against UCLA in the second game of the series at the WCWS tied the game at three runs apiece.

During her time at Chickasha, Elam helped the Lady Chick softball team win back-to-back state championships in 2014 and 2015. Chickasha defeated Piedmont for the Class 5A crown in 2014 and defeated Tecumseh for the Class 4A crown the following year.

Elam drove in the game-winning run in both of those title games.

She received several honors during her Chickasha career, including receiving All-State honors as a senior.
