Recognizing the Lake Braddock Secondary School Baseball Team for winning the Virginia State Championships

Madame Chairman:

We would like to congratulate the Lake Braddock Secondary School Baseball Team for capturing the State Championship on Saturday, June 9 at Westfield High School. Led by the strong pitching of Thomas Rogers, Lake Braddock was able to capture the first state championship title in program history with a 4-0 victory over the Kellam Knights. Rogers, who is in his junior year, played an excellent game striking out 10 players, and hitting a solo home run in the top of the third inning. 

This win is especially significant to Lake Braddock after three hard fought attempts in 1997, 1993, and 1988 to win the State Championship title. Finishing their season with a record of 26 and 3, Lake Braddock is the only team in the Washington DC metro area to be ranked by ESPN’s FAB 50, where they are currently ranked No. 42.

Athletics help to teach us the value of teamwork, dedication, and the power of setting and meeting goals. These young men are an excellent example of the outstanding student athletes that we are fortunate to have in Fairfax County Public Schools. 

Madame Chairman, we ask that the Board of Supervisors congratulate the Lake Braddock Baseball Team for their tremendous accomplishment in winning the State Championship and invite them before the Board at a date to be determined to be formally recognized.
