FULTON – ICC softball coach Chad Case added more firepower to the defending North Division Champion Lady Indians’ roster for next season with the addition of Saltillo High School standout Lindsay Richardson.

“I came to ICC because I got an awesome opportunity to play softball for Coach Case and it’s a really good opportunity to open new doors, to meet new friends, and experience college life,” said Richardson. “I look forward to helping the team because I can play anywhere they need me and I look forward to being at ICC.”

The multi-sport athlete batted .394 with 33 runs scored and 14 driven in on 26 hits with four doubles, three triples, and one home run while leading the Lady Tigers with a .591 slugging percentage and 30 stolen bases for Coach Lee Buse last season.

“We are very fortunate to get a player like Lindsay here at ICC,” said Case. “She is someone that can do a lot of things very well. We look forward to her having an immediate impact on our team next season.”

Richardson won best offensive and defensive awards in softball while earning spots on the Northeast Mississippi Softball Coaches Association and the Mississippi Association of Coaches all-star teams, but her commitment to excellence isn’t limited to the diamond.

Along with softball, Richardson played soccer and was a member of the cheerleader team and despite the full athletic slate she was able to maintain high standards in the classroom to garner numerous leadership and academic honors while at Saltillo High School.

Lindsey is the daughter of Tami and Jody Richardson of Saltillo.
