CENTER OF ATTENTION

South Boston News
It’s been an epic, rollercoaster week for Mecklenburg County's Odicci Alexander, who rocketed to fame in the U.S. and around the world with an unforgettable performance in the NCAA Division 1 Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City. Alexander led the James Madison Dukes to one of the biggest upsets in college sports history, a 4-3 takedown of perennial powerhouse and no. 1 ranked Oklahoma, in the first round of the WCWS on Thursday. The three-sport standout at Park View High School bullt on that the next day with a game-saving dive at home plate to catch an Oklahoma State runner trying to score on a squeeze bunt in the seventh inning of JMU’s 2-1 victory. Alexander pitched a complete game against no. 5 OSU, but the bang-bang play at the plate had everyone buzzing — earning the Top Play of the Day on ESPN’s Sportscenter. JMU later bowed out of the championship tournament with a pair of losses to Oklahoma, but Alexander sealed her place as a college sports icon. (Photo by JMU Sports Information)
