For Lee, this marks the second straight year he has earned Gatorade POY honors. The shortstop also helped St. John’s defend its title as Washington Catholic Athletic Conference champions by rallying the Cadets past DeMatha in the three-game series.
Committed to play at Maryland, Lee has posted a 7-0 mark on the mound with a 0.43 ERA and 58 strikeouts. At the plate, the senior batted. 388 with 34 runs scored and 22 RBI.
Newsome’s award comes on the heels of his lights-out performance in the Maryland 3A championship, when he struck out 17 batters and allowed only one hit to lead the Braves to a 1-0 win against Mount Hebron. The outcome marked Newsome’s 10th win on the season and ran his season strikeout total to 111.
The senior righty, who led the No. 9 Braves to a 22-1 mark has yet to decide where he will play collegiate baseball.
