Renaissance High sophomore pitcher Kabria Arnold struck out eight while throwing a complete-game, two-hit 3-0 shutout against Cass Tech in the Detroit Public School League Division I girls’ softball championship game at University of Detroit Mercy and has been named the PSL Proud Strong Learner of the Week.
“KaBria has been working very hard this year,” Lady Phoenix coach Garrard Taylor said.
“She has become a really good control pitcher and she’s been getting some key hits for us batting fourth in the lineup. She’s also been working hard to keep her grades up. We’re very proud of her.”
For the week, Arnold had a 3-0 record with 18 strikeouts and a 1.00 ERA. She also batted .500 (5-for-10) with four RBI.
The Detroit Public School League Proud Strong Learner of the Week award is representative of the league’s top boys’ and girls’ athletes. The award is presented by the DPS Office of Athletics and is sponsored by Detroit-area McDonald’s owner-operators.
