Baseball Highlights

Baseball Doubles Up on Championships

After claiming the MAC regular season title, Potomac's varsity baseball team showcased their exceptional skill and determination in the MAC Tournament semi-finals, defeating Flint Hill with a dominant 11-1 victory. Their next challenge was the championship game against Sidwell Friends School, with whom they had split victories in the regular season.

With the coveted MAC tournament championship on the line, Potomac's players unleashed their full potential. The team had a solid offensive outing, securing seven hits and five walks, resulting in 3 crucial runs. On the defensive end, they displayed their prowess by giving up only a single hit throughout the game.

Congratulations to Panther Baseball on hoisting the MAC regular season and tournament championship trophies!

Baseball Tied for First in MAC

The varsity baseball team enters the final week of the regular season with a record of 16-4, and is tied for first in the MAC with a 8-2 conference record. Over the past two weeks, the Panthers had three mercy-rule wins over St. Andrew's (twice) and St. James, as well as a 6-3 win over cross-town rival Flint Hill. Davide Bertuzzi '23, Paul Witkop '24, Jack Graham '24, and David Boehm '24 all delivered strong performances on the mound, with Witkop and Graham throwing complete games in their starts. 

On the offensive side, the top of the lineup set the tone, as Marcus Burrell '23, Kelly Crittenberger '23, Owen Peterson '24, and Witkop combined for 22 hits and 25 RBI across the four games, and there were additional contributions from everyone on the roster. Coming up Friday, the Panthers will take on Sidwell Friends on senior night in a matchup that will likely decide the MAC regular season title.

Varsity Baseball to Play at Capital One Park

On Friday, April 7 at 4:30 pm, the Panthers take on Maret at the new Capital One Park, located just down Route 123 in Tysons. All families are invited to cheer on the team.

The Panthers are now 8-2 overall and 1-0 in the Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference. On the strength of four home runs, one a grand slam, the team continued their strong start to the baseball season with a recent 9-3 victory over the Flint Hill Huskies.

Varsity Baseball Wins Spring Break Tournament

The varsity baseball team played their way to a 6-1 record last week, including winning their Spring Break tournament in Florida, going 4-0. Marcus Burrell '23 was named tournament MVP for his performance at the plate and in center field throughout the week.

On Monday, the team won two games, including an epic 5-run rally in extra innings of the nightcap, finished off by a walk-off single from Wyatt Pence '25. Tuesday brought another exciting finish as the Panthers scored six runs in the final innings to come back once again, with this rally capped by a walk-off single from Burrell. Their 3-0 record in pool play earned them a spot in the tournament championship against Key West High School, the team with the most state championships in Florida history. Unfazed, Colby Bohnen '25 delivered a strong start in his first varsity appearance on the mound, and a great team effort on both sides of the ball earned them a 5-3 victory. 

After a tough loss to a very good Georgetown Prep team, the Panthers rebounded on Saturday with another doubleheader sweep, this time over Steward and St. Christopher's, two VISAA foes. Potomac beat Steward 18-3 thanks to home runs from Paul Witkop '24 and Owen Peterson '24, along with contributions up and down the roster. It was followed up with a 12-2 victory over perennial powerhouse St. Christopher's. Kelly Crittenberger '23 provided a timely grand slam and the team came together once again to get a very important win.

BASEBALL ADVANCES TO MAC SEMIFINALS

Following a coin flip tiebreaker to determine the seeding, the Panthers (#4 seed) played GDS (#5 seed) on Tuesday night. Potomac got on the board early, with Marcus Burrell ’23 and Kelly Crittenberger ’23 scoring the first two runs of the game with the help of a sac-fly from Owen Peterson ’24. On the mound, Jack Graham ’24 held GDS to one run in 4 ⅔ innings, giving up only one hit in a stellar performance. Going 3-4, Drew Turner ’23 led the Panthers in hits, with two doubles and a solo home run. Trailing 7-4 going into the bottom of the seventh inning, the top of the Panthers lineup was able to get runners on base, with Turner walking it off, hitting a two-run double off the fence. Varsity baseball moves on to the semifinals of the MAC tournament, going on the road to face rival Flint Hill today (Thursday) at 5:30 pm.
