SUMMIT, NJ - Andrew Miller acted like it was 'BP' when he and his Maroon and White teammates took on 'OP'.

The senior went 3-4 with a double and a three-bagger, and junior Mike Competiello threw 4 2/3 innings of two-hit ball and struck out seven while walking none, as the Summit High School Boys Varsity Baseball Team evened its record at 10-10-1 on the season with a 10-7 over the 500-or-so-yards-away Rams from Oratory Prep.

The 'Summit Diamond Derby' was played under the lights on Summit High School's Upper Turf Field and served as both Senior Night and as a fundraiser for local luminary LeRoy Horn, a cherished former athlete, current youth coach, and friend to many who is facing some health-related challenges.

The Hilltoppers got off to a 'flyer', plating four runs in the bottom of the first, but trailed soon thereafter when Oratory scored five runs in the top of the third. Summit responded with three runs of its own in the bottom of the inning to take a 7-5 lead.

The Rams weren't done, however, and tied it in their next at-bat, pushing across two runs in the top of the fifth to tie the game at 7-7.

Competiello shut the door the rest of the way, and the Hilltoppers got three runs in the bottom of the fifth to earn the 'W'.

Speaking post-game about his seniors, Summit Head Coach Kevin Zaleski said, "They've done a great job of leading our guys by example, showing them how to do things the right way. That leadership will serve us well with the state tournament coming up."

Summit now makes the uber-short trip to New Providence to take on the Pioneers May 17. First pitch is set for 4 p.m.
