THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JON ACKERMAN, FEATURING GRACE LYONS & RYLIE BOONE
Grace Lyons is an All-American shortstop with the Oklahoma softball team. She was a leader on the 2021 and 2022 national championship squads, in addition to being a 2022 first-team All-American, 2021 second-team All-American, the 2022 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, and a member of the 2022 USA Softball national team.
Rylie Boone is an outfielder with Oklahoma who also was a leader on the ’21 and ’22 Women’s College World Series-winning teams. She was named to the 2022 WCWS All-Tournament Team and voted a first-team Academic All-Big 12 member in 2021 and 2022.
Today on the podcast, we continue a series of interviews Sports Spectrum did in Norman with members of Oklahoma’s softball program. First, Jon Ackerman talks to Grace Lyons about being the spiritual leader for the Sooners and her desire to disciple and mentor those who can carry the torch after she finishes up her playing career. Then he talks with Rylie Boone about growing in her faith and when Jesus became real to her.
