BRANDON — After 33 years, Otter Valley Union High School softball coach Pattie Candon has stepped down, a decision she announced last week.

“I just feel this program is in a good place, and 33 years is a long time,” said Candon, who waited until after the season to tell her athletes about a decision she said she had made earlier.
