Lockwood hit 42 home runs and had 175 RBIs during her collegiate career.

In addition to her on-field talents, Lockwood was named an academic all-American and an NFCA Scholar Athlete. She was awarded an NCAA postgraduate scholarship and is currently working on her master’s degree through University of Northern Colorado.

In addition to coaching softball at Skyline High School, Lockwood served as a special education teacher at Skyline. She also volunteered as a coach at Arizona State during the 2015 and 2016 seasons and has been a personal hitting instructor since 2009.
