Bonalewicz powered East Lake to a district championship last week by lifting a 3-run home run in the first inning against Countryside that spotted the Eagles an early lead. She added a double later in the championship game and also went 1-for-3 with an RBI in the semifinals against Northeast.
The senior shortstop has held her batting average in the low-to-mid-.400’s throughout most of the season. Bonalewicz, who will attend St. Johns River State College next fall, is one of East Lake’s top run producers.
“I am so proud of them. They have come together as a team and they’ve played like this the past two weeks. I can’t ask for a better effort all the way around.” – East Lake coach Kristie Delk after winning the league title.
