Some final words/thoughts on the Oak Ridge season, courtesy of ORMA baseball coach Alan Ashkinazy:

The Oak Ridge Military Academy finished up its season at 17-12 and we played a very tough schedule. Good wins over Glenn HS and Randleman HS. Tough loses to Glenn, Davie County, Durham Jordan and Chapel Hill HS. Went 5-4 in three different Easter Tournaments includind a 5-4 extra inning loss vs. a NJ HS Team in The Beach Diamond Classic at West Brunswick HS. My seniors are getting some attention. Lashawn Brown is going to visit Brunswick CC (Ranked 8th) next week as well as GTCC. Nick Taylor and Edwin Soto are on a visit right now to Pfieffer and Nick is also being pursued by Catawba. Tyler Webb is going to Guilford College. It was a very enjoyable year for me. As like all the teams I coach, we started off slow, but as the kids buy in to what I’m trying to do, they get better and better.

Thanks to all my guys for playing so hard ALL YEAR!


  • nice job said,

    Not many will give him credit but Alan did a good job with that team.

  • John Barrow said,

    Al does a great job with every team he coaches- kids know the game after playing for him. That’s why a lot of his kids go places afterwards. Great job as always, Al!

    Also a side note- Nick Taylor will also be visiting GTCC!
