A Tale Of King High
When the Iona Gaels and Canisius Golden Griffins take the field Saturday to decide the Champion of the MAAC, the students of Martin Luther King High School in Riverside, California may have conflicting feelings about which team to root for.
You see, two of King's 2009 star players will be playing for that Championship---but on opposite sides of the field.
Amanda Baun, Canisius
18-11, 1.89 ERA, 7 shutouts
Jodi Petersen, Iona
.368, 8 homers, 30 RBIs
And how have the two freshmen done in this week's tournament?
Jodi hit the game winning homer in the 9th inning of Iona's win over Niagara.
Amanda pitched a one hit shutout in Canisius' win over Niagara.
Not bad for a pair who traveled thousands of miles to play college ball!
