Former baseball players from the Savannah area, Jay Wetherington of Calvary Day School and Justin Thomas of Benedictine Military School were a hit in college baseball recently.

Jay Wetherington, a senior outfielder at Presbyterian College and former standout athlete at Calvary Day, played a significant role in their extra-inning loss to Georgia Tech on April 2, 2024. He went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI. 






Meanwhile, Justin Thomas, a sophomore outfielder at Florida SouthWestern and former star athlete at Benedictine Military School, helped clinch a come-from-behind victory for his team against the Daytona State Falcons in a Citrus Conference doubleheader on March 30, 2024. Thomas's game-winning walk-off hit in the ninth inning of the second game sealed the win for the Florida SouthWestern Buccaneers with a score of 10-9.
