Last week: Briggs tossed two shutouts to help the Chartiers-Houston softball team remain undefeated.
Check this out: Chartiers-Houston, which won the past two WPIAL Class A championships, moved up to Class AA this season, but the stage hasn't been too big for the Bucs or its star pitcher. Briggs, a senior, is 15-0 and ranks among the WPIAL strikeout leaders with 154. Briggs has shut out 10 of the 12 WPIAL opponents the Bucs have faced. She was named all-state last season and is a two-time all-section pick.
