Sanderson junior Kim Brunson is having a record-setting season.
Through 13 games, she has 10 home runs, which puts her in elite company.
Only six other softball players have hit 10 or more homers in one year, per NCHSAA records. None of those six were from Wake County, which would place Brunson atop the county's all-time list.
The state record is 18, set by Leah Jones of (Fayetteville's) Cape Fear High just a year ago. She's the only player with more than 15, and one of two with more than 12.
And the Spartans have at least 10 more games to go this regular season.
Brunson is hitting .644, which would be good enough for the sixth-highest batting average in one season in NCHSAA history, if it stands. She's slugging 1.400 with a .686 on base percentage.
