Luke Metzler, RHP, Myers Park HS. 2021
FB/SL mix, fastball has late run down and in. Threw both pitches for strikes in any count, induced lots of weak contact. 4Ks/2BBs across 6 innings, gave up one unearned run in the bottom of the 4th. Metzler also went 1-4 at the plate with a run scored.




Carrington Williams, OF, Durham Jordan HS, 2021
Chowan commit.  Strong LHH with speed out of the batter's box. Hit three balls on the barrel, including a rocket double to the right field fence in the first inning.  Finished 2-4 on the night.




Daniel Shuta, OF, Myers Park HS, 2023
Athletic 6-foot-1, 190 pounds.  2-4 on the night, but 4 barrels to the pull side including a two-run home run in the 2nd inning.  Added a double in the top of the 5th.

Luke Barbaryka - OF, Myers Park HS. 2021
Physical 6-foot-3, 215 pounds.  Right handed hitter.  1-2 with a long HR to follow Shuta's. Lots of strength with an aggressive approach, looks to do damage early in counts.

Brandon Garcia, IF/P, Durham Jordan HS, 2022
Patient left handed bat with a good contact tool. 2-2 on the day with two singles and a walk, comfortable hitting the ball to all fields.
