Coach Revelle on Lindsey:
“Lindsey Walljasper is a competitor on both sides of the ball. Defensively, she wants the ball in her hands from the pitcher’s mound with the game on the line, and offensively, Lindsey wants to be the one in the batter’s box. She has a deep-seeded belief that all things can and should be accomplished when one sets their mind to it, and works relentlessly toward it. Lindsey spreads her positivity to our team both in the locker room and on the diamond.”
