Tuttle softball standout Macy McAdoo can add another honor to her list.
Gatorade announced in a press release Thursday that McAdoo — a University of Oklahoma signee — was named the Gatorade Oklahoma Softball Player of the Year and is the first player from Tuttle High School to receive that honor.
“Macy McAdoo was as dominant a pitcher as I’ve seen,” McLoud head coach Chance Griffin said in the press release. “It was impressive how she was able to get it done against everyone, no matter how big the stage.”
McAdoo was an important factor in Tuttle's three Class 4A state titles in a row. The Lady Tigers ended the 2018 season with a 35-1 record and defeated Newcastle in the title game after state title victories over Lone Grove and Tecumseh the previous two seasons.
At the 2018 Class 4A state tournament in Shawnee, McAdoo struck out 23 batters to lead the Lady Tigers to another title.
In the championship game against Newcastle, McAdoo went up against a Division I prospect in McKenzie Wagoner and managed to come out with the victory. Tuttle won by the score of 2-0.
McAdoo was later named to the Middle West All-State team by the Oklahoma High School Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association. She is also ranked No. 29 in the 2019 class by Softball America.
The release also states that McAdoo is now a finalist for the Gatorade National Softball Player of the year.
