‘Clones to avenge ‘07

SHORTSTOP - LIZA ACEVEDO, Lincoln

Acevedo has played a great shortstop for Lincoln; while she has got it done in the field, she has also got the job done in the batter’s box, posting a .532 BA and driving-in 19 runs. Comment.
Borough-wide

SHORTSTOP - JAMES WONG, Madison

Madison’s secret weapon in the infield. Not only was he clutch in the playoffs by hitting a double that broke open game three of the semifinals, but Wong flashes the best glove in the borough. Comment.
Borough-wide

SECOND BASE - ASHLEY MAWAD, Midwood

The most improved player on Midwood in her freshman season, she batted only .190; this season, Mawad skyrocketed to a .537 BA and a .756 slugging percentage while having 22 hits. Comment.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR - KAYLA HILL, Madison

The future is extremely bright for Madison as Hill has emerged as the key pitcher for the Lady Knights. In her first season on the varsity level, Kayla has only allowed five earned runs while fanning 56 opposing batters in 46 innings tossed. Not only has she done the job on the mound, Hill’s bat is lethal as she has batted to the tune of .373 BA, 4 HR, and 14 RBI. Hill has stepped up to be one of the borough’s most terrific stars as she still has three more years to dazzle fans and scouts while frustrating opponents. Comment.

PITCHER- MARIE ONETO, Madison

Simply touted as the ace of Brooklyn, Oneto was unhittable as she tossed 46 shutout innings en route to a spotless 6-0 regular season record. In the playoffs, the ace struck out 14 batters in 15 frames tossed. Comment.
Borough-wide

PITCHER - DANIEL PERRI, Tele

In only his first season as a starter, Perri has powered Telecommunications’ starting rotation with a 5-1 record. But the freshman’s most impressive statistic was that he only surrended six earned runs in 29.2 innings pitched. Comment.
Borough-wide

OUTFIELD - STEVEN DEVALLE, Tele

In only his second season on the varsity level, Devalle went from batting .297 in 2007 to a solid .500 in 2008. The junior posted up 11 RBI and 28 hits. Comment.
Borough-wide

OUTFIELD - KRISTINA BERMUDEZ, Lincoln

While she is not at the hot corner, Bermudez roams the Lincoln outfield. The freshman stole 24 bases in only her first season on the varsity level. Comment.
Borough-wide

OUTFIELD - KEVIN LAIDLAW, Madison

Madison’s biggest outfield threat. Kevin has laid the law with a .440 BA while slugging at .500 for his final season roaming the Knights’ outfield. Comment.
Borough-wide

OUTFIELD - JENNIFER GABAY, Madison

Gabay has been a terrific outfield anchor for the Lady Knights as her glove is one of the best in Brooklyn. Her .429 BA and 24 RBI offensive output is among the top on Madison and in the division. Comment.
Borough-wide

OUTFIELD - GEENA BELL, Midwood

The leading offensive player for a team that struggled this season, Bell rung up opposing pitching for a .467 BA, .867 slugging percentage and produced a team-high 18 RBI and 21 hits. Comment.
Borough-wide

OUTFIELD - ALEXANDER WARDEN, New Utrecht

Warden has charted New Utrecht’s course into battle with a solid 2008 campaign (.308 BA and 13 RBI). His RBI total is tied for the team lead. Comment.
Borough-wide

FIRST BASE - RICHARD ADAMES, Tele

After finishing 2007, hopes were high for Adames to put up the same numbers (.413 and 13 RBI) as he did in a down year for Tele. But in a year when they won the division, Adames went out with a bang, batting .333 with 17 RBI. Comment.
Borough-wide

FIRST BASE - NIKKI PANARO, Madison

Madison’s slugger, Panaro plays a terrific first baseman and is the anchor on the Lady Knights’ infield. Additionally, her numbers solidify her position as that slugger (.474 BA, 27 H, and 27 RBI). Comment.
Borough-wide

DESIGNATED HITTER - JON PIERRE GARCIA, Tele

Although his natural position is behind the dish, Garcia has been the sparkplug for the Yellow Jackets’ offense. The slugging DH has batted to the tune of .455 BA, 2 HR and 19 RBI. Comment.
Borough-wide

CATCHER - LISA MORRO, New Utrecht

When she is not toting the hill, Morro has played a superb backstop and has posted terrific offensive numbers (.545 BA, 23 R and 23 RBI) for her final season as a Ute. Comment.
Borough-wide

CATCHER - JASON GALEANO, Tele

The best offensive backstop in the borough (.366 BA and 18 RBI), and it was only his first season as a Jacket. The freshman has proven to be a superb addition to the Telecommunications’ infield. Comment.
