The Gant Daily Athlete of the Week for April 9 through April 15 is Curwensville softball player Holly Lansberry.
All Lansberry did in a 13-0 win over Sheffield was throw a no-hitter with 9 strikeouts, get 3 hits, and score 3 runs. Lansberry ran her record on the year to 3-0.
The continued winter weather just about wiped out another week of spring ball, but a couple of other players had big games in limited action:
Another Curwensville pitcher stayed \”hot\” – Ben McGary threw 9 innings of shut out ball to lead the Tide to a 1-0 win over the previously unbeaten Brookville Raiders.
Helping Lansberry in that 13-0 whitewashing of Sheffield was Lady Tide 2-sport star Dani Struble. Struble had three hits, including a homerun, scored 3 times, and drove in 4 runs.
On the collegiate scene, former Clearfielder Brandon Baughman has been starring for Geneva College of late.
This past week, Baughman threw a shut out against Notre Dame College of Ohio. Baughman has only given up 1 run in his last 13 innings pitched.
