Toni Nino recently completed a very successful season at Silverado high school in Victorville, California, helping lead the Hawks to the Desert Sky League championship, and a berth in the CIF Southern Section playoffs where the team made it to the quarterfinals. Toni was named to the Desert Sky first team after hitting .515 and leading the team with 52 runs scored. The speedy outfielder/infielder also led the Hawks in stolen bases, stealing a perfect 47 bases in 47 attempts, this in just 27 games.
Toni is projected by coach Carroll to play in the outfield at Rider, and probably will eventually be the Broncs' leadoff hitter. Toni will play travel ball with the SoCal Wicked before joining Rider in the fall.
