A four-year starter, Canami is leading the team in nine offensive categories. In wins over North East, Perryville and then-No. 2 Archbishop Spalding, she batted .667 (8 for 12) with eight RBIs, six runs scored and two stolen bases. Canami enjoyed perfect games at the plate in the wins over North East and Perryville ¿ going a combined 7-for-7, driving in seven runs and scoring four more ¿ before getting one hit, two RBIs and scoring the game-winning run in the upset win over Spalding. Among other statistics, Canami leads the team this season in batting average (.542), RBIs (11), runs scored (10), and slugging percentage (.792). She plans to play softball and soccer at York (Pa.)
