Think back to your days as a seventh-grader for just a moment. Chances are you usually were thinking about that cute boy or girl in class, or complaining about how much homework that annoying teacher assigned.
Then there is Olivia McGrath
. In addition to being a seventh-grader at Boston Latin Academy (Dorchester, Mass.)
, McGrath also is a starting pitcher for the varsity softball team. As reported by The Boston Globe
, McGrath won her second consecutive game last week, and in her two starts she has 12 strikeouts. She also had two hits in her latest victory, a 12-6 win against New Mission.
McGrath shares the pitching circle with her older sister, Sydney McGrath
, who is a junior for the Dragons.
"Olivia is our varsity pitcher and she is smooth just like her older sister," coach Rocco Zizza told the newspaper. "Both sisters have a fierce rivalry and are always competing against each other and that motivates them in practice."
