Ally Brown strong despite tough week for G-A
It's been a weird season - or lack thereof - for Greencastle-Antrim's softball team.
First, the Blue Devils didn't actually take the field until April 2, nine days after the official start of the spring sports season.
They then had another unexpected nine-day vacation before taking the field again Monday against East Pennsboro.
Despite not actually doing any varsity pitching for the first 18 days of the season, Ally Brown looked well-polished.
"She looked just fine; she hasn't thrown ... at all," G-A coach Mark DeCarli said following the game versus the Panthers. "Her changeup looked really good."
Although Brown took the loss, she had an impressive outing. She allowed just six hits and none of the three runs scored by East Penn were earned. Brown struck out nine Panthers while not giving up a free pass.
To go along with her pitching, Brown also had a hit and scored one of the Blue Devils' two runs. Her offensive numbers continued to impress in a 14-13 loss to Waynesboro. She racked up three hits, including a pair of doubles, and drove in two runs.
Greencastle has played just three games to this point and is 1-2. It has had four games either cancelled or postponed so far.
