High school sports quick hits from Kosmo the all-knowing Oakland Press seer.

Monday, April 23, 2012

Last season was a disappointing one for the Auburn Hills Avondale baseball team, a squad that at the time was dominated by juniors who made solid sophomore seasons in 2010. The Yellow Jackets took a small step backwards last year, but up to this point in the season they've sure rectified that in a big way. Senior-dominated Avondale has put it all together lately, getting off to a 10-3-1 start and sweeping one of the county's top teams, Stoney Creek, in a doubleheader on Saturday. Granted, outcomes of non-league doubleheaders on a Saturday should be treated with some caution. Those are the types of twinbills where teams are more concerned about developing younger players and messing around with lineups a little more. League games are obviously taken a lot more seriously. Still, Avondale had a good league win over Bloomfield Hills Andover a couple of weeks ago and still should be credited for its play against Stoney Creek. So far, it looks like Avondale is living up to what a team with three and four-year starters should be like. - Kosmo has to give major props out to Walled Lake Central junior Cullen Prena. A discus thrower on the track team, Prena set a school record in Central's first meet and then bettered that by launching a county record throw last week of 184-4. To see a video of the throw, click here What's next, a state record throw? Kosmo certainly wouldn't put it past someone like Prena given the tear he's on right now.
