Weekend Baseball and Track Action
La Salle has long owned one of the Catholic League's upper-echelon baseball programs. In fact, the Explorers have not posted a losing league record since 1995 (5-9).
We mention that nugget because PC varsity baseball visited La Salle for a morning scrimmage on Saturday . . . and rolled to an 8-1 victory.
The primary highight turned out to be three steals of home – one apiece by juniors Steve Lorenz, Dom Toso and Adam Holland. Also, junior Mike Siani stroked two hits and senior Kenny Bergmann collected two RBI.
Siani (three innings), junior Brendan Cellucci and senior Harrison Timberlake (two apiece) divided the pitching duties. Each allowed one hit while Siani/Timberlake halved 10 strikeouts.
Also Saturday, the varsity track teams competed in a multi-school event at Plymouth-Whitemarsh.
In the boys portion, two juniors won their events while achieving personal bests. Akeem Blake uncorked an effort of 44 feet, 10 inches in the triple jump. Dylan Burnett clocked 15.08 seconds in the 100-meter high hurdles.
The girls were represented by senior Emily Smith. She placed fourth in the 800 at 2:26.
