Fully recovered from an early-season ankle injury, Alicia Brandenburg has discovered she much prefers playing to riding the pine.
But the Williamsport softball team finds her far more likeable in a sitting position.
Brandenburg's 60-mph fastball completely stymied the Wildcats' offense Friday and spurred Catoctin to a 4-0 victory in a key MVAL Antietam softball game.
"I've been feeling pretty good lately," said Brandenburg after her one-hit, 11-strikeout masterpiece. "After hurting myself and having to sit out, watching the game isn't nearly as much fun."
The Catoctin right-hander got all the offensive support she needed in the first inning without the benefit of a base hit.
