Pasco Athlete of the Week
J.W. Mitchell H.S. Baseball/Senior
THIS WEEK'S FEATS:
McCormick went on a tear during Mitchell's championship effort at this week's Northeast Spring Break Tournament, extending his hitting streak to five games. From the plate he went 6-for-13 in three games, with three doubles, two RBIs, seven runs scored and a walk. He struck out 12 and allowed only three hits and three runs (one earned) over six innings in a semifinal win over Clearwater.
The senior shortstop/pitcher is leading the Mustangs with 23 runs scored and 13 walks. He's recorded 11 RBIs, six doubles and a home run while carrying a .339 average. McCormick is 5-0 on the mound and holds a team-low 1.49 ERA for starting pitchers.
Mitchell (15-3) is locked into the No. 2 seed behind rival Land O' Lakes come District 6A-10 tournament time. The Mustangs are looking to get back to the postseason after missing out last year.
