The Land O’ Lakes High baseball team is sending one player and has committed another to the collegiate level. Catcher Cameron Hilgenberg has signed with Ave Maria University and outfielder Connor Stephens has verbally committed to Jacksonville University, Gators coach Calvin Baisley said.
Hilgenberg, a 2014 graduate, batted .229 for the Gators with 13 RBIs and three homers on 16 hits. Hilgenberg was also a standout swimmer at Land O’ Lakes.
Stephens, an upcoming senior this school year, had team highs in average (.381), hits (37), runs scored (29) and triples (6). He also drove in 17.
