La Caada’s Anna Edwards is arguably the area’s most feared power hitter. She’s batting .569 (44th in the nation among juniors) with 41 hits, 30 RBIs, nine home runs (tied for fifth in the nation among juniors), seven doubles and one triple. She homered twice three games into the season against Baldwin Park and homered took San Marino’s Michelle Floyd deep in the second meeting. In fact, Edwards has almost single handedly led the Spartans to wins over rival San Marino.
Round 1: Edwards went 2 for 2 and scored the winning run in the first to lead the Spartans to a 1-0 win.
Round 2: Edwards went 2 for 3 with two runs scored, an RBI and a solo home run to lead the Spartans to a 2-0 win.
Round 3: Edwards went 0 for 3 in the Spartans’ 2-0 loss.
In 72 at-bats, Edwards has struck out only four times and been walked 12 times. She’s stolen 14 bases in 14 attempts, and the junior leads her team in batting average, on-base percentage (.644) and slugging percentage (1.069), leaving little doubt that Edwards truly is one of the best.
