Whitman junior Alex Cladouhos pitched five shutout innings in the Vikings’ 10-0 win over Paint Branch.

BETHESDA, Md. — The Walt Whitman High School baseball team got a shutout pitching performance from Alex Cladouhos and used a six-run fifth inning to put an early end to their matchup with visiting Paint Branch on Saturday, beating the Panthers 10-0.

Paint Branch starting pitcher Eric Lowe matched Caldouhos through the first two innings, but he issued three walks and hit a batter in a three-run third-inning meltdown that gave the Vikings control of the game. Whitman added a single run off Lowe in the fourth before closing out the mercy-rule win with a six-run outburst against Drew Jacobs in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Cladouhos allowed four hits and two walks with no strikeouts in five innings to get the win. Andrew Castagnetti had two hits, a run scored and three RBI for the Vikings, while catcher Nick Bode was 2-for-2 with two doubles, two RBI and a walk.

Mark Meyer swimmingBy Eric Meany

In 2008, recent Walt Whitman High School graduate Mark Meyer had his trip to the U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials cut short by obligations to his new school.

So after finishing third in his preliminary heat and 36th overall in the men’s 200-meter butterfly at the trials in Omaha, Nebraska, Meyer traveled directly to Annapolis early the next morning to participate in Induction Day.

This year’s trials begin on Monday, and with his time at the Naval Academy behind him Meyer hopes to enjoy the experience more than he was able to four years ago.
