Hitting, pitching, defense, base-running.
Right now, Ella Andrews is doing it all for the Annville-Cleona softball team. But perhaps the most important thing she is doing is leading.
This week, Andrews, A-C’s lone senior, continued to lead, and the Little Dutchmen continued to surprise. Andrews helped Annville-Cleona to two impressive victories, over Columbia and Lancaster Catholic.
“Ella Andrews is setting the tone for the whole team right now,” said Annville-Cleona head coach Tim Bowen of her play.
On Friday, Andrews and the Little Dutchmen shaded Lancaster Catholic 11-2. Two days prior, Annville-Cleona had registered a 12-2, six-inning victory over Columbia.
In that contest, Andrews pitched and hit the Little Dutchmen to the decisive triumph.
On the mound, Andrews went the distance on a seven-hitter, struck out three and walked two. At the dish, she drove home three runs with a pair of hits.
