Lynne was a starter on the 1982 and the 1983 volleyball teams that won the state championships and was voted the best defensive player on the team both years. In addition Lynne was a starter for the varsity basketball teams her junior and senior years and was a captain her senior year. On the softball field Lynne started as freshman playing left-field for the Red Knights. Sophomore year, she started as shortstop and finished her IWA softball career as a second baseman. She was voted the MVP of the team her junior year and the best offensive player her senior year. During this time the Missouri State High School Athletic Association held the girls’ softball state championships during the fall. However, all the St. Louis teams played in the spring.
