Marissa Nardone is one of the most feared hitters in the Wyoming Valley Conference, and she showed why in Pittston Area’s first game of the season.
Nardone smacked two hits and drove in the Lady Patriots only run in a loss against league powerhouse Nanticoke.
For her effort, Marissa has been named The Sunday Dispatch Pittston Area Athlete of the Week for the week April 3-9.
Nardone had two singles with her sixth-inning smash driving in a PA run.
Posters of Marissa can be seen at Tony’s Pizza in Pittston, and Smart Designs and Graphics in Wyoming, sponsors of the Pittston Area Athlete of the Week.
