Another one, for next year:

The biggest bat belongs to senior shortstop Brynn McManus, who has signed with Liberty University, where she will be coached by two-time Olympic gold medalist Dot Richardson.

McManus has hit 15 home runs, putting her within reach of the state record of 21, set by Lauren Burke of Marist Catholic in 2016. McManus is batting .638 with five doubles, four triples and 46 RBIs and has scored 48 runs.

“I don't know of anybody that swings the bat better than her in the state,” Terry said. “I don't see anything getting by her. She's not afraid of anybody. She just gets after it. She hits leadoff to set the tone for us.”
