Cintron and Bucek Record Their 100th Career Hits


BRIDGEWATER, NJ - As the spring sports season comes to a close, two Somerset County Vocational & Technical High School students have made school history by each reaching their 100th career hits. 

Giannie Cintron, of Bound Brook, a member of the softball team and Sam Bucek, of Bridgewater, a member of the baseball team, both reached the mark, making it the first time a member of both teams accomplished the historic feat in the same year.

Even more remarkable, for the first time in school history, a member of the varsity softball team has reached the 100 hit mark. Senior Cintron only needed one game and four at bats into her senior season to set the new school record.

“After recording forty three hits in her freshman year, I felt she had a great shot at one hundred,” said softball Coach Jack O’Neill. “Giannie is one of the captains is completely respected by all.” 

Cintron ended her high school career with 121 hits.

Also reaching the milestone this year is senior Bucek who recorded his 100th hit in his final high school game to become the fourth baseball player in SCVTHS history to record 100 hits. 

Bucek connected for his 100th hit in his first at bat during Senior Day, and then followed it up with another hit later in the game to end his high school career with 101 hits.  

“Sam’s success is truly a result of his hard work and dedication,” said Head Baseball Coach James Strickhart.
