Landers Athlete of the Week: Lanee Oliver - May 21st

Posted: Updated:

Standing only five feet tall Atlanta, Texas pitcher Lanee Oliver commands the mound as if she were a giant.

"She's a small gal but god put the biggest heart in small bodies," said Tobie Dunlap, Atlanta's head softball coach.

Lanee admits that she gets nervous in front of the crowd when she walks out to pitch each game but pretends like she is twice her size to ease her fears.

"I think that most people underestimate me because of my height," said Lanee.

The sophomore is one of three Oliver sisters to play on the team. Her twin and older sister are also Lady Rabbits. Lanee has more than 20 wins on the seaon and has led her team to the final four with a chance to play in the 3A state title game.
