Owasso’s Allene Dennis – Character Counts Presented by Summit Physical Therapy

It was at the age of six when Allene Dennis first stepped onto the softball field. Little did anyone know, Dennis would spend the next ten plus years of her life in the dirt and loving every minute of it. An outfielder for the Owasso Lady Rams, Dennis enjoys playing the position that allows her to use her strengths.

“I like playing outfield because of the range I have and I get to show off my speed,” said Dennis.

The Lady Rams are coming off a 25-10 season under head coach Shane Eicher and with 13 seniors on the roster, coach Eicher is confident his players will get it done.

“You can expect something special and a fun time,” said Dennis on the upcoming season. “I have a lot of close friends on the team and we all make a lot of fun memories.”

As a student-athlete, Dennis has always focused on her grades. She was once part of the Leadership Council at school and is always looking for new activities.

“Academics are super important to me and I prioritize it over softball. After I graduate I’m going to play at Mid America Christian University to manage in Sports Management,” said Dennis.

With her future goals in mind, Dennis is looking forward to the new season and she is thankful to have the support of her parents.

“My parents and my brother have been my biggest influence and I’ve always looked up to them,” said Dennis.

Allene Dennis is an excellent example of what it means to be a good teammate and student for Owasso High School.
