Fluco boys shoot for strong post-season

By Duncan Nixon

The Fluco baseball team is having a super season. Their record currently stands at an amazing 20-1 overall and 5-0 in Region play. Their pitching staff has recorded six consecutive shutouts. 

Region play starts Thursday (May 23), with the Flucos hosting a regional opponent at home with a start time of 5:30 p.m. Attendance at Fluco games has been good this season. A large and highly enthusiastic crowd is expected on Thursday night, to cheer on a team that has State champion aspirations. 

The Fluco boys track and field team is also moving into the post-season with high hopes. Their performance at the Region qualifying meet held May 15 at Monticello High was impressive. The following athletes qualified in field events: Eli Hartzog, Alden Custer and Josh Elliot in shotput and discus, Christian and Cameron Holland and Colby Martin in the triple jump, the Hollands in the long jump, and Ethan Yancey and Jariq Henson in pole vault. 

The Flucos also qualified a host of athletes in the track events. These included: Ledric Reid, Jared Newman and Eric White in the 110 hurdles and the 300 hurdles, Dante Eddings and Kaiden Posati in the 100-meter dash, Aiden Girard in the 400-meter, Rocco Calderone in the 800-meter and Eddings and Martin in the 200-meter. Two relay teams also qualified for the Region meet: the 4X100 relay team of Prophett Harris, Christian Holland, Eddings and Martin, and the 4X400 relay team of Newman, White, Martin and Girard. As a result of all these qualifications the Fluco team under Coach Steve Szarmach is hoping for very strong Region showing.
