Earlier this week, we sent out a cheer to Rock Hill's boys soccer team for cracking the top 15 coaches poll put out by scsoccer.com.
Today's cheer goes to York Comprehensive baseball player Zac Fuesser, who had a great game this week in a 9-0 win over Nation Ford.
Fuesser, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound senior southpaw, pitched a no-hitter. He struck out nine in raising his record to 2-0. In those games, he has struck out 13 and allowed only three hits.
A diving play by second baseman Aaron Wutrick with two outs in the bottom of the seventh preserved the no-hitter. Several players provided offensive support with two or more hits.

Fuesser is getting lots of interest from Major League Baseball and could be picked in this spring's draft.
"We have had several scouts visit scrimmages and games,'' York coach Scot Kiggans said. "We get phone calls and e-mails weekly about when Zac is pitching from almost every MLB team.''
