Portland junior Jess Brown was named Monday as Maine’s Gatorade Softball Player of the Year, becoming the first Bulldog to even earn the honor. Brown went 9-1 in the regular season with a 1.66 earned run average and 101 strikeouts in 72 innings of work. Brown, Portland’s 2016 Spring Female Athlete of the Year, has a 102.2 average in the classroom, is member of the National Honor Society, the Girl Scouts of America and the Math Club and is an accomplished pianist. Brown and her second-ranked Bulldogs teammates host a quarterfinal round playoff game Thursday.
