It was a great day for the Monarch High School baseball team after picking up their first win of the season on Tuesday.
The baseball team defeated Everglades High School 12-2 in the opening round of the BCAA Tournament. The Knights scored nine runs in the first inning behind an RBI triple and two-run double from Hunter Nelson. Adriel Gonzalez, Vinny Mercado, Colin Aube, and Lyonel Barthelemy also drove in runs for Monarch in the first.
The Knights added two more in the second on a two-run double from Aube, scoring Jake Mirarotanda and Jake Ramaglia. Giovanni Mastrorosa knocked in the final run with an RBI double. Mercado won on the mound, while Josh Stevens and Andrew Hernandez pitched the final 2.2 innings.
The rest of the team consists of Dominic Guzman, Sebastian Mayfield, Jael Hernandez, Brayden Slade, Tanner Gibson, Jack Goodman, Jason DeVries, Diego Rojas, Alex Hernandez, Alejandro Cruanas, Alex Fogel, Nick Dematteo, Jose Guevara, Aidan White, and Daniel Ophime.
“We are off to a really good start,” said Head Coach Mike Ramaglia. “We are hitting one through nine through the lineup and are deep off the bench as well. We had two preseason wins plus a big win in our opener, where everyone contributed. I love how aggressive we’ve been at the plate and how we are barreling balls up.”
The Knights will play Pompano Beach High School in the Semifinals on Wednesday, Feb. 22, at 6 p.m. The Eagle went 12-11 last year and played South Plantation High School in their first game.
