Some outstanding individual performances highlighted the spring sports season for me this year.
At the top of my list is the courage and pain threshold shown by Aly Stanley. Stanley injured the posterior cruciate ligament in her knee while the Lady Cats’ softball team was on their spring break trip to Florida. She sat out a couple of games because of the injury and then resumed playing, although for a time she only pitched.
Eventually, she went back into the batter’s box, too, but was replaced by a courtesy runner when she reached base.
