Our last 2022 State Games kicks off this weekend in Melbourne as top 2025s will rep their region at the Sophomore State Games. Today we will preview who will be in attendance this weekend. We will start first with the regions in Session 1 on Saturday, North and East.


The North Region features 2025 grads from all across North Florida cities like Jacksonville, Gainesville, Daytona, and up to the Panhandle. Pitching for the North Region will be right-handers Ethan Drumm and Dominick Patruno as well as southpaw Austin Stratmann.

Behind the plate will be Patruno as well as Gabe Gonzalez and Nick Gates. The infield will feature Stratmann and Wade Surber at first, and Christian Zediker and Kolby Batten at third. 

Up the middle will be Luke Anderson, Grady Hartman, Noah Prudencio, Thatcher Harley, Dallas Rasmussen, and Diego Rosario. Finally, the outfield features Michael Bysheim, Levi Pietschker, and Aaron Rowell.

The North looks to repeat as the reigning Sophomore State Games Champions.


The East Region brings a talented group from Central and East Florida with players from Orlando, Lakeland, Vero Beach, and Melbourne areas. Pitching for the East are three southpaws in Kai Lwin, Brennan Confreda, and Ismael Rivera.

Behind the plate is Hunter Anderson, Hunter Demetree, and Reese Ainsworth. The infield features Confreda, Keegan Cusick, and Aidan McMahon at the corners. 

The middle infield is Ty Kennedy, Taggert Cameron, Tristan Lopez, Carlos Rubio, Christopher Padilla, and Cam Medina. Rounding out the roster is the outfield featuring Lwin and Dominic Leoni.

The East always features a tough team to beat and seems to be the same this time around.
