Landers Athlete of the Week: Lori Wallace - May 7th

Posted: Updated:

Castor's Lori Wallace has played her last game inside the school's new softball and baseball complex. The catcher, who grew up playing softball, led her team to a quarterfinal appearance in the Class "B" state tournament as the No. 3 seed.

Coached by her mom and dad, Lori was been very productive at the plate. She hit four home runs in her final season.

"She is always on base," said Joy-Dee Wallace, Lori's mom and coach. "She does her job. She knows what needs to be done. She will do anything you ask her to do."

Lori said her parents never treated her any different on the field.

"They treated me just like another player. Yes, they do point out different mistakes when we're at home but I think other parents probably do too."

Lori is a 4.0 student and was recently named to the All-Academic All-State team.
