Pusch Ridge stickout to play ball, study at Idaho school

A Pusch Ridge Christian Academy standout is going to play baseball and study at Northwest Nazarene University.

Aaron Vaughn, a 5-11, 170-pound pitcher and infielder, was the 2A Southern Region Player-of-the-Year as a senior.

He posted a 9-0 record on the mound, striking out 58 batters in 36 innings pitched with a 1.94 ERA. Vaughn hit .580 with an on-base percentage of .663 as he drove in 34 runs and collected 17 extra base hits.

"Aaron had a great spring in all facets of the game," said Tom Onofrei, coach at the Nampa, Idaho, school. "His velocity has climbed to 88 mph and he put up some really impressive numbers at the plate."

Vaughn posted a 3.4 GPA at Pusch Ridge Christian Academy.

Sports camp at Green Fields

Students entering grades 4-8 can participate in the Summer Sports Camp at Green Fields Country Day School July 13, 15 and 16.

The three-day camp "focuses on the fundamental skills needed to play after-school sports," among them baseball, basketball, volleyball, soccer, tennis and swimming, a release said.

Camp is on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday morning from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. The cost is $50.

Green Fields Coach Angela Vande Mheen leads the camp. To register, people may call 360-1817 or e-mail avandemheen@greenfields.org.
