Player Profile



POLAND OH- Poland has something special in the water. They have consistently brought fantastic athletes through their sports program. The latest player to show off their talents in every sports season is current junior Mary Brant. Whether it is being a captain on the soccer pitch, one of the leading scorers on the basketball, or now as one of the big sources of power in the softball lineup.  Mary seems to shine at everything she does. From the outsider who watches her play, it may seem effortless.  But behind the scenes Brant puts in more work than anyone to get herself where her team needs her to be.  Her work ethic is what makes her the player she is. She doesn’t rest on her talents.

When it comes to softball, Mary put a lot of work into her swing in the off-season. She was able to notice some holes in her swings, and then make the proper moves to correct them. That has elevated her game from a good hitter, to one of the most dangerous hitters in the area.  Her glove doesn’t slouch on the field either.  As the shortstop, Mary commands the middle of the infield making every play look easy.

Brant is currently hitting .549 at the plate for Poland.  Her power has been huge for the Bulldogs lineup.  With 11 doubles, 6 HR and 27 RBI she is one of the most productive hitters in the conference.  In fact, 17 of her 39 total hits have been of the extra base variety.  In 71 at bats Brant has only struck out 7 times this season.  As a fielder, Mary has only made 2 errors all season.  That gives her a fielding percentage of .974.

Brant was kind enough to talk with YSN’s Anthony Hartwig about her season. She also talks about the work she put in heading into this year, how she has handled being more of a leader as an upperclassman, and so much more. Check out the latest Poland Softball Player Profile only on YSN.
