Completing one of baseball's most unique pitching feats, Athlete of the Week Kenny Schaedel led Cape Henry Collegiate Baseball to a TCIS Tournament Championship.
At the highest level of baseball, there have only been 112 shutouts thrown in a championship game.
On Friday night at War Memorial Stadium in Hampton, Schaedel achieved that rare feat, throwing a shutout and giving Cape Henry Collegiate its first TCIS Tournament victory in nine seasons.
On the mound, Schaedel’s performance was nothing short of remarkable, solidifying the end of one of the most dominant TCIS stretches in school history and earning him the tournament's MVP award.
With the #1 seed in this year’s DI VISAA State Tournament, the Dolphins will lean heavily on the Schaedel's talents in search of completing the 2022 trifecta.
“Kenny was outstanding,” Head Coach Tim Hummel said. “He threw a total of 94 pitches through seven innings, striking out seven to give us a shutout victory in the TCIS Championship. Kenny gave up only three hits and limited Nansemond-Suffolk Academy to a .130 batting average on the night.”
Schaedel added one hit on Friday night to tag along with one of the most commanding pitching performances of the season, throwing a total of seven innings in under 100 pitches against a talented NSA Baseball program.
With only the DI State Tournament ahead of the Dolphins, Schaedel will have a maximum of two more contests in a Cape Henry Collegiate uniform before continuing his career at Georgia Tech.
Next up for Schaedel and Cape Henry Collegiate: a return to the DI Semifinal at Shepherd Stadium against the #5 seeded Collegiate School on Friday, May 20.
