A sibling rivalry is one thing. But what Brooke Romano sees when she ponders facing her younger sister, St. Amant High pitcher Alyssa Romano, is something else entirely.
"My sister is the one pitcher I'm afraid to face," she said. "She moves all her pitches around so well and her changeup is a killer. It's a nightmare for a hitter. She's got that game face. The expression never changes. She's focused."
Plenty of other hitters understand exactly what Brooke Romano explained. As a junior, Alyssa Romano led St. Amant to its first LHSAA title since 2006. She struck out 191 batters, had a 1.34 earned run average and a 26-2 record. No longer the little sister or the young pitcher, Romano is all grown up and committed to Southeastern Louisiana University.
