    SHALLOTTE - West Brunswick softball assistant coach Amanda Fields set several individual pitching records during her time pitching for the Trojans.

    If she hangs around much longer, she might have to watch as Morgan Beeler shatters those marks.

    Beeler set yet another personal best ledger with 17 strikeouts against North Brunswick in a 5-0 win on Thursday, March 29, in Shallotte.

    The junior right-hander yielded just three hits and one walk in seven innings as the Trojans seized an early lead and never looked back in the shutout victory.
