Softball welcomes graduate student MacKenzie Purcell

The softball team announced the signing of MacKenzie Purcell, a transfer student from Kingwood, Texas.

Head Coach Bruce Lenington commented, “We are very happy to have an opportunity to have Mackenzie on our squad. She is a proven winner who embodies the drive and determination we seek here at OLLU.

Purcell is a graduate student and plans to major in clinical mental health counseling. She plays in the infield and is a transfer from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and Temple College.

Purcell said, “I chose to play at OLLU because the softball program will give me the opportunity to continue growing as a player, student and person. The OLLU softball program has a competitive atmosphere and great culture. I am excited to finish my softball career and begin my master’s degree at OLLU.

The Saints are the reigning Red River Athletic Conference champions and made it to the NAIA National Tournament in the spring. The women will play a handful of games in the fall and begin their official season in the spring.
