San Antonio – Emily Brittain has won plenty of Heartland Conference awards, but even this honor is new to St. Mary’s decorated young pitcher.
Brittain, a sophomore from Corpus Christi, Texas, has been selected to the Daktronics Softball All-South Central Region Team, it was announced Tuesday.
Brittain, the two-time reigning Heartland Conference Pitcher of the Year, went 16-5 with a 1.85 ERA and 88 strikeouts this season. Most notably, her season included a perfect game against Texas-Permian Basin on March 23 and a no-hitter against Texas A&M-Kingsville on Feb. 21.
With Brittain leading the way, St. Mary’s claimed the Heartland’s regular-season championship – the Rattlers’ 11th title in the past 12 years – and narrowly missed out on qualifying for the South Central Regional Tournament.
St. Mary’s finished the year 34-19.
