Below are some notes taken for this weekend, and a few noteworthy performances that were sent into to us.

+ St. Thomas Aquinas RHP Alex Egan (2018) was extremely impressive against John Curtis on Friday. He went 6 innings, giving up 3 hits, 1 BB, 0 runs and struck out 7.

+ Baton Rouge CC commit and John Curtis OF Mason Matherne (2016) made an outstanding catch crashing into the wall, and also put several good swings together. A physical, strong athlete Matherne paired with, Daniel Cabrera, in the John Curtis outfield makes that unit very strong, as Cabrera showed plus defensive ability in centerfield making a couple extremely difficult plays on Friday.
