A great friendship makes for great battery mates; Jefferson, Voshell conclude great prep careers

Friendship combined with athletic teamwork together makes an awesome power.

An impressive proof of this point is the solid alliance formed by the best of friends and stellar Clermont Northeastern baseball players, Michael Jefferson and Trace Voshell.

Jefferson is a left hand pitcher who dominated the Southern Buckeye Conference baseball scene for the past four seasons. This year he earned a record of 7-2 with a 0.96 earned run average and struck out 80 opponents in 50 innings pitched. His junior year he was 5-2 with a 1.40 earned run average striking out 72 adversaries in 50 innings pitched.

Voshell has been the Rockets’ catcher for four seasons. For the campaign that just ended he hit .500 and had three home runs and batted in 45 runs. As a junior he hit .494 with one home run and 33 runs batted in. For his entire varsity career he threw out 80 percent of those foolish enough to attempt to steal a base on him.
