High School Baseball Poll - Collegiate Baseball Newspaper

PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release: Tuesday (April 20, 1999)

BARBE H.S. NO. 1 IN EASTON SPORTS COLLEGIATE BASEBALL NEWSPAPER (www.baseballnews.com) POLL

TUCSON, Ariz. — Barbe High School of Lake Charles, La. continued a remarkable season with a 29-0 record, 61 home runs and a team batting average of .380 to remain ranked No. 1 in the Easton Sports Original National High School poll.

Coach Glenn Cecchini's talented team, with a blend of fine pitching and a howitzer offense, is being sparked by a 6-foot-1, 190-pound sophomore, Austin Nagle. The centerfielder, exceedingly strong for his age, already has popped 14 homers with 45 RBIs. He is hitting .556 with 8 doubles and 2 triples. Remaining No. 2 in the Easton poll, compiled by Collegiate Baseball, is Bellaire, Tex. (25-1). Bellaire, coached by Rocky Manuel, has won 18 in a row and recently experienced its sixth no-hit victory of the season.

"In my 22 years, I've only had two no-hitters," said Manuel. "Then this season, I've already had six," added Manual whose latest no-no was hurled by southpaw Jon Gonzales against Lee H.S.

Easton Poll Notes: Barbe is getting superb results from a new philosophy by Coach Cecchini. "For the first time we're maintaining our strength program during the season, and the results have been remarkable. We've also played our toughest schedule ever this season. Our team batting average is .380 while our opponents have a combined .202 BA." Coach Rich Hofman of Westminster Academy (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) celebrated his 750th career victory as he guided his club to a 24-2 record, a big surprise to everyone since he is coaching his first team at WAHS after moving from Westminster Christian in Miami, His record now is 751-187-15. Carlsbad, N.M. belted 14 HRs in 4 games to push its record to 14-1.
