Pinellas Athlete of the Week

Troy Strominger

East Lake H.S.
Baseball/Senior

THIS WEEK’S FEATS:

Strominger came through in the clutch during East Lake’s first-round playoff game against Wharton High. Facing a full count with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning, Strominger broke a scoreless tie by lining the game-winning base hit into left field.

FAST FACT:

Strominger and the Eagles attempted to move past the region semifinals on Tuesday for the third time in program history. Go to www.SuncoastNews.com to see how East Lake fared against Durant High.

QUOTABLES:

“I made the last out of the Dunedin Tournament championship game in that same situation, so that was in the back of my mind a little bit. I wanted some payback.” – Strominger on recording his game-winning hit.
