Name: Brianna Dobson
Background info: In her first start at pitcher, Shaler freshman Brianna Dobson introduced herself to the WPIAL while introducing Fox Chapel to the Class AAAA Section3. Dobson struck out 12 in a Shaler 9-3 win over the Foxes on Monday afternoon. With the graduation of two senior pitchers including starter Sydney Smyers, Shaler coach Skip Palmer was forced to break in a new pitcher with no innings of varsity experience. Dobson was making her debut against Fox Chapel, a Section 3 newcomer last season. Fox Chapel was 6-6 in Section 2 last season before making the move.
