June 09, 2010 - Despite a busy week of final exams, picnics, prom and graduation, Phil Price has seen his seniors Chris Mocerino and Tyle Scarlett put their attention on the diamond.

"It's nice to see seniors really busting their butt and focus," said the boys varsity baseball head coach. "It's a tough time of the year. It's nice to see seniors step up."

Both have been three year starters on the team and have aided the team offensively and defensively.

"Mocerino has solidified our team defensively. He has done a tremendous job for us. Offensively he has come into his own. He has hit the ball all over the field," said Price.

"Scarlett is a hitting machine and he has helped us pitching recently," Price continued. "He has been our closer a few games and has been hitting the cover off the ball."

Both felt good about winning the district final on Saturday afternoon but admit all the credit goes to the team.

"The team is more together," said Scarlett. "Everyone has each other's back."

"We are closer," Mocerino added.
