Garver Helps Varsity Baseball Get Back on Track

After two losses to open the 2019 spring season, the Arete Prep Varsity Baseball team evened their record at 2-2 with wins over NFL Yet and Fort Thomas this past week.

Pierce Garver, a senior, pitched 16 strikeouts and gave up only four hits in 7 innings of work against the two opponents. Pierce pitched a perfect game into the third inning of the 18-3 four-inning victory against NFL YET Academy played at Cactus Yards in Gilbert on Wednesday.  On Friday at Crossroads Park, Pierce pitched a complete game 11-0 shutout with nine strikeouts against visiting Ft. Thomas. Garver also helped the Chargers offensively batting a .750 average, with 4 runs scored, 2 RBIs, 2 singles and a double in his seven plate apperances this week. For his outstanding performance, AZCentral named Garver one of HS Baseballs best from last week. 

 Pierce was recently accepted to The United States Military Academy at West Point where he will attend in the Fall.  This week, the Chargers travel to Superior on Tuesday, and to Hayden HS for a game with the Lobos on Friday.
