BRANDON — A school could get used to this: Otter Valley Union High School pitcher Brett Patterson threw a one-hitter in the No. 2 Otters’ 6-0 win over visiting No. 7 Lake Region in a Division II quarterfinals on Thursday.
A model of efficiency, Patterson threw just 67 pitches, struck out nine and walked none in just an hour and 20 minutes to send Lake Region packing. And the senior hurler and co-ace Justin Owen have been consistently on their pitching all season, helping the Otters to a 17-1 record.
