Cobras snake-bitten in tough region but can return 15 lettermen for 2018

SUMMERVILLECane Bay High School’s baseball team placed fifth in a tough region this spring, finishing behind three postseason district winners.

The Cobras were 12-10 and 4-6 in Region 8-AAA. Hilton Head, Colleton County and Beaufort all advanced to the Lower State final four and the Cobras were competitive with all three.

Fifteen varsity lettermen can return in 2018 for Cane Bay, which should mean good things for next spring.

“We feel pretty good with the players we have but some will need to put forth more of a commitment to the program to continue in the program,” CBHS coach Shane Todd said. “We feel we have a good foundation of talent but we now need to start performing to meet our potential.”

Three seniors will leave the program, including North-South all-star pick John Sendziak.

Sendziak, a Spartanburg Methodist signee, will represent the Cobras in Lexington May 23-25. 

Sendziak batted .328 with a team-high 19 RBIs, two home runs and a .500 on-base percentage. From the bump, he recorded a 5-2 mark with 66 strikeouts in 53 innings. He had a 1.72 earned-run average.

Junior southpaw Dylan Harley (2-5, 1.88 ERA), southpaw Braydon Craven (3-2, 4.15 ERA) and righty Kristofer Blanco (2-0, 4.31 ERA) will be the most experienced pitchers coming back.

Harley fanned 64 batters in 41 innings and should have been rewarded with a better record.

Catcher Luke Page batted .324 with 11 RBIs and scored a team-high 22 runs to lead the way at the plate.

Infielder Steven Dutton hit .300 with seven RBIs and a .500 on-base percentage.

Blanco posted a .275 batting average and swiped a team-high eight stolen bases and 20 runs scored. Outfielder Brad Harrel batted .250.

Other regulars that can return are shortstop Trey Thacker (20 runs, seven stolen bases), outfielder Jacob Rose (.241, 12 RBIs), infielder Keith Christensen (13 RBIs) and infielder Aaron Winn.
