Here are this week’s
American Family Insurance All-Northeast Ohio Top 5 Performances of the Week.
Number 5: This week’s fifth-best performance
comes from the final meeting between the Midpark and Berea baseball teams. The 51st matchup between the two squads came down to
a big fourth inning by Midpark, which scored eight runs to take a 9-1 lead and
added two more in the fifth inning to run-rule the Braves, 11-1. The base paths were busy all day. In the photo, Midpark’s Kyle Kronen steals third base.
Number 4: This week’s fourth-best performance
comes from the softball diamond, as Revere traveled to Tallmadge. This photo
shows the effort and hustle of both the base runner and the infielder covering first base, as
they dive for the bag.
Number 3: This week’s third-best performance
comes from the baseball game between Stow-Munroe Falls and Twinsburg. In the photo, the Twinsburg runner dives
back to second base, taking out the infielder in the process. Twinsburg would go on to win, 9-5.
Number 2: This week’s second-best performance
comes from the baseball game between Brookside and Lake Ridge Academy at Palmer Fields.
The game got away from Lake Ridge fairly quickly. In the photo, Brookside
junior captain Mathew Seekins blasts a three-run homer over the 305-yard marker
on the fence.
Number 1: This week’s top spot pays tribute to a great feat accomplished by a local prep hoops team on the hardwood this March. The Villa Angela – St. Joseph boys basketball team won the program’s sixth state title in school history when it captured the Division IV state championship. On April 19,
the school hung a banner commemorating the feat.
Those were the American
