Savannah makes a Triple Play Friday in NCAA Baseball NCAA Division I Baseball Championships

Benedictine Military School has two Cadets marching into two different regionals, and both are true freshman who got some key innings pitched for their respective schools.

Powers appeared in seventeen games on the season and started 5, had an earned run average of 3.69, a 1-1 record, and struck out 23 batters in 31 innings pitched.
