As the first week of a full slate of YAIAA spring sports comes to a close, York County Tech's Nathan Chronister put in an all-around effort to help his team secure a 7-2 win over Columbia. The performance earned him the top-performer spot from Wednesday evening.
Chronister picked up his first win of the season on the mound, pitching a complete-game with eight strikeouts, without surrendering an earned run. He also did damage as York County Tech's leadoff hitter, collecting two hits in three at bats with three runs scored, one RBI and three stolen bases.
Game of the Night
The Bermudian Springs baseball team erased a 5-0 deficit with six runs in the final three innings in an 8-7 win over Dover. Colby Smith provided some of the heroics with a clutch two-run double with two outs in the top of the seventh, giving the Eagles an 8-6 lead.
After walking in a run to bring the Eagles to within one in the bottom half of the inning, Tanner Byers recorded a strikeout and a ground out with the bases loaded to seal the win for Bermudian.
Here is a look at the rest of the top performers from around the YAIAA:
