Hawks second baseball season comes to a close
In its second season, the Hawks baseball program made great strides, improving its season record to 9-12-1 from the inaugural season's record of 3-15. The Hawks play a grueling 22-game schedule against schools with the best baseball program in Florida.
 
On the season, the Team finished with a winning record against 6 schools:  Marathon, Ransom Everglades, Westwood Christian, Miami Country Day, Palmer Trinity, and Sagemont.
 
The Hawks achieved many firsts: first shoutout, complete game (Charlie Calli) in a 6-0 win over Ransom Everglades; a one hit, complete game shutout (Jackson Carney) in a 3-0 win over Palmer Trinity; another one hit complete game (Charli Calli) in a 6-4 win over Sagemont; the first mercy rule win- 13-3 win over Marathon; first sweep of doubleheader against Marathon; another mercy rule win - 11-1 over Miami Country Day; second sweep of a doubleheader against Miami Country Day; two no hitters - first combined no hitter (Chaz Royo pitched 5 innings and Charlie Calli 1 inning) against talented Doral Academy; second no hitter (Chaz Royo 3 innings, Camrin 2/3 of an inning, Charlie 1/3 of an inning) against Westwood Christian - won 7-2; first home runs: Chaz Royo (4), Loren Kretzschmar (1), Jackson Carney (1); first 3-game win streak/4 game unbeaten streak (Ransom Everglades tie, Marathon DH sweep, Ransom Everglades win); a second 3-game win streak (Westwood Christian, Miami Country Day doubleheader sweep).
 
Seven players finished the season with a batting average of .240 or higher:
Chaz Royo:           .512
Antonio Longa       .364
Jackson Carney     .362
Charlie Calli           .298
Loren Kretzschmar .269
Michael Michot       .268
Dominic Tirado       .238
 
Sixteen of the seventeen players on the roster scored at least one run this season with Chaz Royo logging 22 runs scored, Camrin Thompson, the best leadoff man in South Florida, crossing the plate 13 times, followed by Jack Carney with 11 runs, Charlie Calli with 8, Mike Michot and Dom Tirado with 6 each, Loren Kretzschmar and Reza Pedram with 5 each, Anthony Sinclair and Antonio Longa with 4 each, Seve Leoni with 3, Ken Brown, Brian Brooks, Liam Magee and Kai Kawachika with 2 each, and Ethan Bustard with 1.  Fifteen players had at least one RBI.
 
On the mound, Charlie Calli finished with a record of 5 wins and 5 losses and had 85 strikeouts.  Chaz Royo had 74 strikeouts. Camrin Thompson had 15 strikeouts.  Jackson Carney had 7 strikeouts and Mike Michot had 3 strikeouts.
 
The program thanks Michael Michot, Liam Magee, Kai Kawachika, and their families, as those players have been instrumental in helping to build the program for two years.
 
The baseball program is here to stay and this year's sixth grade class will help ensure success for years to come.  The returning seventh and eighth grade layers provided leadership that helped move the team to success.  In 2017, the Hawks will add a Junior Varsity program to compliment the middle school team.
