Lukas Colton anxiously awaits the arrival of the perfect pitch.

Lukas Colton has been named the Male Athlete of the Week for the week ending on April 15th, 2023. Lukas has steadily contributed to the Warrior Baseball team’s offense and defense. Against Harmony, Lukas hit two home runs and added another home run against Claysburg Kimmel. Lukas has not only been essential on the offensive side but has also been huge defensively for the Warriors, whether on the mound or at shortstop. 

Junior teammate Isaac Tirracorda stated, “Lukas contributes a lot, his home runs have led us to beating teams by big margins. When he gets his curveball working almost nobody can touch him on the mound.” Colton is currently batting at 0.308 and has 6 RBIs on the season. He has contributed by pitching in four games this season and expects to pitch in several more games.
