For more than 15 seasons the leaders in Cape-Atlantic League stats in football and basketball have been posted at PrimeEvents.net. This spring we started additional coverage - listing the leaders in baseball, softball and lacrosse.
In baseball, Dom Boselli of Holy Spirit was the leading hitter with a .511 average. He also led the league in hits and doubles. Egg Harbor Township sophomore Jordan Sweeney led in home runs (9) and RBIs (46). Tony Santa Maria of Atlantic Tech had the most stolen bases (25).
In softball, junior Faith Hegh of Mainland led hitters with a .600 average. Her teammate - Meredith Miller - was close behind, followed by a pair of Wildwood Catholic sophomores. Hegh also led the CAL in RBIs (37) and was second to Millville's Rian Eigenmann in total hits. Absegami's Becca Roesch was the leader in triples and home runs.
On the softball mound, Tahtiyanna Camba of Wildwood Catholic won an extremely close contest with Egg Harbor Township's Tori Szrom and Millville freshman Mahogany Wheeler for the CAL's best ERA. Camba was 7-0 on the mound, second to Millville's Sydney Shannon (9-0). Shannon allowed the fewest hits per seven innings, Szrom the fewest walks and Atlantic City's Megan Master averaged 10.47 strikeouts per seven innings to lead all pitchers.
In girls lacrosse, Bridget Ruskey of Middle Township won a tight battle with Millville's Abby Daigle and Mainland's Meghan McIntyre-Bozzi for the goal scoring lead. Allison Hunter of Middle led the CAL by a big margin in assists. Ruskey set a state career goal record and Hunter a NJ career assist record this year. Shannon O'Reilly of Ocean City had the most ground balls and Lower Cape May's Mel Amador led goalies in total saves and save percentage..
