Background Info: One of the most consistent hitters for undefeated Quaker Valley (16-0, 13-0) this season, Nelson Westwood supplied some key offensive production in back-to-back Section 1-AA games for the Quakers. Against New Brighton on May 2, the senior outfielder went 3 for 4 at the plate. Westwood followed that performance by going 4 for 4 with two triples against Avonworth on May 6.

Quotes from Quaker Valley coach Todd Goble: “Nelson has been steady all season. He runs the bases very well for us and is fast. He’s driving in big runs when we need them. He’s been a great leader this year. ”
