Amanda Freed

Pacifica, Senior; Softball/Pitcher

Freed has been the dominant pitcher in the county for so long that sometimes her excellence is overlooked. Last week in the playoffs, when the competition is supposed to get tougher, she shined again, leading the Mariners into the Division III semifinals by pitching two no-hitters. She struck out 14 in a 2-0 victory over El Modena in the quarterfinals.
