Addison Harmon is a junior at Owasso and plays on the softball team in both fast-pitch and slow-pitch seasons. Softball is a big part of Harmon’s life as she also plays on a travel team and assists in youth development with little leaguers. Harmon first began playing softball when she was six years old and admits that to this day she is still learning how to improve her game and strives to be the best she can be and looks to make the most out of every opportunity.
“No two practices or games are the same,” Harmon said. “I’m always in competition with myself to get better.”
This year Owasso had a great season and made a deep run in the Class 6A state tournament.
“We go into every year with the goal of winning a state championship, so we are obviously disappointed that we fell short of that but it was exciting making it as far as we did after overcoming several obstacles as a team,” Harmon said.
The last two years Owasso was knocked out of the tournament by eventual state champions Southmoore. For the third year in a row the two teams met, but this time with different results.
“I think one of the most memorable moments for both me and my team was playing Southmoore in the first round of the state tournament this year,” Harmon said. “Southmoore had beaten us the last two years in the state championship game and we were able to come out on top 9-5 this year.”
Harmon has many supportive people in her life but is most grateful for the love and generosity she receives from her family and friends.
“My biggest role model would be my dad,” Harmon said. “He is always pushing me to do better and always making sure that I can be the best version of myself on and off the field. He is my biggest supporter, always looking out for me, and lifting me up when I’m down.”
In the classroom, just like on the diamond, Harmon always gives it her all. Currently Harmon’s favorite class is aeronautics. After graduating from high school Harmon said she would like to play softball at the next level and then eventually transfer to Oklahoma State University to pursue a degree in either aviation or medicine.
