LEOPOLD—With deeper than ever pitching and strong infielders returning, Perry Central’s girls softball team is aiming for its first PLAC title.
Sophomore Miranda Claise has moved up to the No. 1 pitcher after working with a pitching coach all winter.
She went 1-3 as the No. 2 pitcher for the 4-13 Commodores last year. But now “she throws 53 to 55 miles per hour, she’s picked up a screwball and a curveball, and her change-up’s pretty good,” said Coach Mark Rothgerber.
