Academy at the Lakes H.S.
THIS WEEK’S FEATS:
Church and the entire Wildcats offense exploded for 21 runs during two overpowering games at the Class 2A state championships. AATL mercy-ruled Palatka Peniel Baptist Academy 10-0 before wiping out Mount Dora Christian Academy 11-0 to claim its second straight state title. Church went 6-for-8 with four RBI, two doubles, a triple and a run scored.
The freshman catcher batted .500 this season with 27 RBI, 19 runs scored and 11 doubles.
Pasco County’s never had a back-to-back state champion until AATL accomplished the feat May 23 at Historic Dodgertown in Vero Beach. Senior pitcher Lexi Kilfoyl ended her incredible high school career by tossing a no-hitter in the title game.
