Washam considered a few other schools;
however, she thought LC was a good fit. She plans to play both in
the infield and behind the plate.
Andrews has also signed Krystina Gomez,
a right-handed pitcher from St. Charles East High School.
"We are glad to get a player of
Kelsey's caliber from an area high school," Andrews said. "She is a
hard worker and has shown leadership ability at LCHS. She comes to
play every day and is an excellent person as well as a softball
player, which is very important in building a program. We hope to be
able to recruit other players from the area."

Lincoln High School coach Ken
Schweitzer said: "Kelsey is a competitor who knows the game very
well. She is a hustler, and I feel she has the ability to be a power
hitter. I think Lincoln College will be a very good place for Kelsey
to begin her college career."
As a junior, Kelsey hit .241, with four
triples and six doubles included. She caught nearly every game for
the Railers last season, and this year she will be used behind the
plate and will also play some shortstop, according to Schweitzer.

A student at LCHS. She is the daughter of Rick and Jodi Washam and
has one brother and one sister.
