Amity pitcher Grace Whitman had some big shoes to fill after Katie Koshes and Morgan Perry graduated last year, but she has some chops and is making a name for herself this year.
Whitman had 5 strikeouts in Monday’s game.
The Lady Spartans took an early lead with four runs in the first inning, followed by two in the second, while Branford didn’t get on the scoreboard until the fourth inning with two runs. Amity kept forging ahead with four runs in the fourth and five runs in the fifth inning.
Whitman works well with catcher Rachel Crow.
Records: Amity 3-0; Branford 0-2
