She was a member of the National Honor Society and Winners Circle. She plans to major in mathematics. St. Edward's Softball Head Coach Donny Bruce said, 'Lindsey is tremendously smart. She has a feel for the game that many young ladies her age really don't have. She will prove to be a valuable asset for our pitchers.'
Myrick, daughter of Jerry and Donna Myrick, is a three-year varsity softball member and was named First Team All-Cen-Tex Softball All-District and Academic All-District. She has been a volunteer for Coats for Kids and sings in St. Theresa's church choir. She plans to major in biology/pre-medicine.
