Athletes of the Week 4-15-22

By Staff | Apr 15, 2022

Michael Ruse

Senior, Cape Coral High School


The Seahawk designated hitter/first baseman had a 6-RBI performance versus LaBelle, where he went 2-for-3 with a grand slam, double, three runs scored and a walk.

“I felt good going into batting practice. I was looking for the fastball most of the time. I just sat back and waited for my pitch. It was an awesome feeling.”

Ashton Devitt

Senior, Mariner High School


Devitt captured the FHSAA 2A Region 4 weightlifting championship for snatch in the 169-pound class for his 180-pound lift, a personal record. The senior is the first weightlifting regional champion in school history and will compete in the State Championships April 22.

“It feels good. It feels like work paid off. I just try to focus on what’s in front of me, block everything out, just look at the bar and pick the weight up.”
