Pinellas Athlete of the Week

Andrew Monahan
East Lake H.S.
Baseball/Junior
THIS WEEK’S FEATS:
Monahan has stepped up at the perfect time to experience a power surge at the plate for East Lake. The junior has two home runs in as many days, including Friday’s grand slam that essentially sealed the Eagles’ nine-inning 7-3 Class 7A region final win at Melbourne.
OFFENSIVE OUTBURST:
After entering the postseason struggling to score runs, East Lake has recorded 16 in the past two on its way to the state semifinals.
FAST FACT:
This will be the Eagles’ second trip to states in school history. The first came in 2002 when East Lake was edged 8-7 in the Class 5A state championship game by Lynn Haven Mosley.
