Indian Valley Storm

Souderton Area 2017 left-handed pitcher Thylar Summarell is still quite raw on the mound, but there is a lot to dream on with his 6-foot-4, 215-pound build. During a brief outing in mid-June, he worked with a low-80s fastball that touched 83 and has the potential for much more as he develops and gets more mound time (10.1 IP, 5 H, 10 BB, 17 K as a junior).

Other Storm notes
Summarell is joined on a physically imposing Souderton Area pitching staff by 2017 right-handed pitchers Noah Horas (6-foot-4, 190-pounds) and Jake Morgan (6-foot-3, 210-pounds). ... Perkiomen Valley 2017 outfielder Ryan McCourt is a 6-foot-1, 180-pound left-handed hitter who batted .316 as an everyday player for a strong Vikings squad.
