Dawson Netz '19 Breaks CIF-SS Pitching Record

Congratulations to Varsity baseball pitcher Dawson Netz '19 for breaking a new CIF-SS record and counting.
On Tuesday, May 1, against Cerritos Valley Christian, Dawson broke a CIF-SS record by going 48 consecutive innings without giving up a run, a number he doesn’t plan to have end there. Dawson said, “I feel like the six days I’ve been taking off between games really helps me recharge and makes it possible to be ready for each start. I also enjoy playing out in the field and hitting. I am happy with the streak we’re on as a team, and I’ve felt really confident on the mound. I always go out there thinking I need to be on my ‘A game’ to help give us the best chance of winning. We’re going to work hard to get better each day in the hopes of winning a league and CIF championship.”

Dawson is now 8-0 with a 0.10 ERA, and has struck out 88 batters in 56 innings. Maranatha’s Varsity baseball coach Matt Shupper said, “Dawson has been on fire and has done so much to put us in a great position to try and win an Olympic League championship. He’s mixing all his pitches well and is hitting his spots. We have won 12 consecutive games, but there are many things we need to work on. Overall, though, we’re obviously very happy where we’re at as a team.”

Maranatha looks to wrap up Olympic League play with a league championship and a perfect 12-0 season this week when they take on Village Christian.
