We were bragging on these two local kids last week and they must have heard us and said, “take a look at us now”.

If you hear about other kids doing well on college level please let us know at durhamandy@live.com. Here’s what we have this week on JP Polchinski(Ragsdale HS) and Clint Moore(Grimsley HS) up at West Point.

EASTON, Pa. – J.P. Polchinski homered twice in the first game and once in the second game and Clint Moore added three-run blasts in both contests as Army clinched a share of its second straight regular season Patriot League championship by sweeping a doubleheader from Lafayette, Sunday afternoon at Kamine Stadium.

Army won the first game by the score of 12-7, then rallied for two runs with two outs in the top of the ninth inning of the second game to secure a 12-10 victory. By winning three of four games against Lafayette over the weekend, the Black Knights tied Bucknell atop the final regular-season standings with a 13-7 league mark. Army captured at least a share of its fourth regular season Patriot League title in six years and clinched its fifth Patriot League Tournament berth during that same span.

Moore, whose three-run homer in the fourth inning of the seven-inning opener turned a 6-4 deficit into a 7-6 lead, went 4-for-7 with five runs scored and six runs batted in during the doubleheader. He tripled twice and smacked a three-run home run in the eighth inning of the second game that provided the Black Knights with what seemed to be a comfortable 10-5 lead at the time before Lafayette came storming back.

Polchinski, who ripped three home runs during the four-game weekend series, went 4-for-8 with four runs scored and four runs batted in during Sunday’s twinbill. His sharp single to left with two outs and no one on base ignited Army’s game-winning rally in the top of the ninth inning of the second game after the Leopards had tied the score at 10-10 with five runs in the bottom of the eighth.

    I remember JP playing tough at third base for Ragsdale and being a great wrestler too. Dad is as nice as they come too. Great to see JP and Clint doing well at West Point.
