With a record of 17-6-1 (9-4 Region), the Mays High School baseball team finished 3rd in Region 6-AAAAA, qualifying for the AAAAA State Playoffs.
With a very young and gifted team; primarily sophomores and juniors, the Raiders have competed on a high level this season.
Juniors; Isaiah Lewis (SS) and Desmond Jones (OF) lead the team offensively. Lewis is hitting .412, while Jones sports a .371 batting average.
Defensively, the team has played great all season; making routine and spectacular plays at every position.
Sophomore pitcher Xzavion Curry has been extraordinary on the mound with a record of 6-3, 3 saves, 102 strikeouts while allowing only 17 runs. Senior Kristen Brewster (6-2) has also been solid on the mound.
“Coach Austin and I set some lofty goals for the 2014 season,” said Coach Michael Jennings. “We have made great strides in achieving all the goals that were established and are looking forward to playing in the AAAAA State Playoffs; where anything can happen!”
