J.P Taravella Baseball Continues With Wins Before District Playoffs


By: Matt Rothman

The J.P. Taravella baseball team is officially heading into the playoffs as the number one seed.

The Trojans continued their remarkable season with an impressive win over South Plantation High School. JPT won 9-0 and received four quality innings from Chris Scinta. Head Coach Joe Giummule turned to Dalton Juden, Colby Lipovsky, and Ryan Meekins to complete the shutout.

Offensively, freshman E.J. Burns drove in a game-high four runs with a pair of hits. Julian Garcia, Lipovsky, Edgar Marquez, and Ronald Martinez drove in runs in the win. Both Tony Sanders and Vincent Samuel had doubles, while Jassiel Valbuena scored a pair of runs.

“It was nice to secure the number one seed based on our record and strength of schedule,” Coach Giummule said. “We are taking this week’s games to fine-tune the little things.”

Up next, the Trojans baseball team plays Cooper City High School on Wednesday, April 21 at 6:30 p.m. before closing the regular season out the following day against Plantation High School.
