Peninsula Premier Admin

Former Santa Catalina slap-hitter Marissa Bruno saw her senior softball season at Portland State cut short last March because of the pandemic.

Granted another year of eligibility by the NCAA, the left-handed swinging Bruno will be back in the outfield to finish what she started for the Vikings this spring.

Last year Bruno started all 24 games for Portland State, hitting a collegiate career high .384, with 14 of her 28 hits going for extra bases.

A three-time member of The Herald’s All-County softball team at Santa Catalina, Bruno led the Big Sky Conference in triples (5) in 2020, scoring 19 runs and driving in 15.

A .322 career hitter at Portland State, Bruno has scored 78 runs in 156 career games, with 141 hits and 27 doubles. She has driven in 49 runs and sports a career .978 fielding percentage.

Portland State opens its season on Feb. 26.
