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

In deciding to leave the post Candon cited the length of her tenure and the fact there are many good young players on a team that finished this past season strong after a slow start.

“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.

The June 11 OVUHS graduation marked the end of Candon’s career at the Brandon school, but it was more than that. The longtime softball coach, gym teacher and graduation coordinator is retiring, yes, but she is also leaving the school she graduated from in 1972.
