Congratulations to this week’s KAUS Overby Orthodontics Prep Athlete of the Week, Mac Nelson of the Lyle/Pacelli Athletics baseball team!
Nelson, a senior infielder and pitcher for the Athletics who has been a leader this season for a squad currently ranked No. 2 in the state in Class A stepped up his game even further this week, as with the Athletics in a stretch of seven games in six days, Nelson belted a two-RBI triple in a nine-run bottom of the 5th inning of a 10-0 win over St. Clair at Marcusen Park Monday, he then went 2 for 3 with four RBI’s and five runs scored in a 33-4 Athletics rout of Glenville-Emmons/Alden-Conger in the first game of a doubleheader Tuesday, and in Game 2, Nelson went 2 for 4 with a home run, a double, two RBI’s and two runs scored in a 9-6 LP win. Nelson continued his hot streak at the plate versus Wabasha-Kellogg Wednesday, as he went 3 for 4 with two doubles, two RBI’s and two runs scored in a 9-3 win, and in a matchup in Spring Valley Thursday with GMLOK, Nelson was a one-man wrecking crew as he smacked another home run in a 2 for 3 performance with three RBI’s and three runs scored, plus he pitched a complete game with 10 strikeouts and no walks in a 9-4 Lyle/Pacelli win, the club’s 15th of the season.
