Kathy Davis won a state softball title while at Keller High School, but she may have topped that accomplishment in her first year at Friends University in Wichita, Kansas.

During halftime of a basketball game, Davis hit a one-handed half-court shot as the buzzer sounded to win Chick-fil-A for a year.

Davis, who’s been playing softball most of her life, was selected thanks to a teammate. She had one minute to make a layup, free throw, 3-pointer and half-court shot.

“I decided that my softball throw would work best because I could actually get it there,” said Davis, who went from two hands to one hand on the final attempt.

Davis said she made the layup in one attempt before sinking the free throw on the fourth try. She made a 3-pointer in three attempts before draining the buzzer beater on her seventh.

The Indians won back-to-back 6A state championships in 2016 and 2017. They finished 31-3-1 last season with a trip to the regional final, a fourth-straight appearance.

Davis signed with Friends last year as a senior. Friends went 26-24 and 15-7 in conference play last season.
