Senior Luke Foley spun a three-inning perfect game while picking up three hits at the plate, and Hilton Head Prep baseball delivered a spectacular performance in all phases Friday, annihilating a solid Colleton Prep squad 23-0 on the road.
The Dolphins jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the first inning before piling up 11 more runs in the second. HHP tacked on four more in the third inning, and Foley closed out the perfecto on the mound in the bottom half to complete the three-inning run-rule rout.
Foley was phenomenal on the mound and at the plate, striking out eight of nine batters while going 3-for-4 with a trio of RBIs. Jaiden Hrobar, Phoenix Betancourt, and Connor McDonnell also collected three hits apiece, and both McDonnell and Tommy Stauffer drove in four runs. The Dolphins were simply unstoppable at the plate, racking up an incredible 23 runs on 18 hits.
“The offense jumped on ‘em early and stayed relentless, and Luke’s performance was dominant,” HHP coach Chris Wells said. “He’s worked so hard and I was so happy for him tonight. We’ve got a lot of baseball ahead of us but we’ve come out of the gates well so far.”
In its first five games of the season, Hilton Head Prep has recorded three shutouts while allowing just four total runs.
HHP (5-0, 3-0) looks to keep the scorching start going Saturday at Northwood Academy.
Colleton Prep (3-4, 2-1) hosts Thomas Heyward on Tuesday.
