Wow, Fran really has a juggernaut rolling this year. Steam rolled Laughyette and didn’t even allow a run in three games! This might be one of the best teams ever. We had a few in the past that relied heavily on one or two players to carry/pitch the load, but this group seems more like a well oiled machine with a lot of contributing parts.
I caught a pair of the Lafayette games. This team is based on great pitching, the 2 best in the league by far, and speed. Don’y count on this juggernaut ending anytime soon. Next year’s recruiting class, at least on paper, rivals the current year’s junior class.
Fran will be bringing in 3 career .500 hitters in Brianna Gerhardt, Ashley Quidolit and Jenn Stoll. The biggest catch however may be Emily Sorem, who is currently 6-0, allowing no runs to date. She has a no-hitter with 14 Ks, a one hitter with 16 Ks and just recently threw a 2 hitter with 16 Ks against the defending State 6A champs.
