Freshman pitcher Braelyn Boykin of Mize has been outstanding in the circle in her last two starts, helping the Lady Warrior softball team defeat No. 6 Gulf Coast and also a very strong Southwest Lady Bear team. Against Gulf Coast on April 3, she gave up just four hits as East Central beat the Bulldogs 4-3. In her next outing at Southwest on April 9, she again pitched a no-hitter and needed just 83 pitches in a 2-1 win. She has now won seven games in the circle this season.
