In his second start since returning from a stint with tendonitis, Glynn Academy starting pitcher Alex Colon threw a six-inning no-hitter against Brantley County Friday night, en route to the Red Terrors’ 10-0 win.
“Earlier in the year he wasn’t quite himself with some tendonitis,” said head coach Greg Roberts. “It’s good to have him back.”
Colon’s effort extents the Red Terrors’ winning streak to six games. Jace Wilder helped Glynn Academy in the slugging department with an RBI double.
