Tuttle right-handed pitcher Macy McAdoo is the latest recipient of the Gatorade Award as the state’s high school softball player of the year.

The 6-foot senior went 24-0 with a 1.00 ERA last fall, leading the Tigers (35-1) to a third consecutive Class 4A state championship.

McAdoo struck out 228 and allowed only 47 hits over 126 innings. She is ranked the No. 29 recruit in the 2019 class by Softball America and has signed to play at the University of Oklahoma.

She is the first Gatorade softball recipient from Tuttle.

“Macy McAdoo was as dominant a pitcher as I’ve seen,” McLoud softball coach Chance Griffin said. “It was impressive how she was able to get it done against everyone, no matter how big the stage.”

The award recognizes athletic excellence, high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character on and off the field. McAdoo volunteered by feeding the homeless, assisting with tornado relief efforts and coaching youth softball players. She maintained a 3.65 GPA.

She is now a finalist for Gatorade’s national softball player of the year award to be announced next month.
