Winning back-to-back state championships in Class 2-A, you could say it was a great year. In addition to team accolades, 2019 graduate Allen Hernandez was chosen for this year’s Cleveland Indians MLB team while 2016 alumnus Orlando Tribal was drafted by the Washington Nationals.

Adding to the honors, MCS Head Baseball Coach Chris Cuadra was selected to coach the Miami Dade Private Schools team in the HSBN/Miami Marlins Senior All-Star Game. MCS Seniors, Jason Garcia, Jason Marono, Adrian Rodriguez and Arnold Ruiz were chosen as players. The Miami Dade team, under Coach Chris, beat the Broward Private School’s Team 14-3.

Of course, there were lots of scholarship offers for team members as well.

• Jason Garcia was offered baseball scholarships to Arizona Christian University, Shorter University, and Alabama A & M University;
• Jason Marono was offered baseball scholarships to Arizona Christian University, Judson University, Shorter University, and Alabama A & M University;
• Adrian Rodriguez signed with Montreat University to play baseball; and
• Arnold Ruiz was offered baseball scholarships to Alabama A & M University, Bellevue University, Florida National University, Judson University, Shorter University, and Stetson University.

The female athletes were not to be outdone, and also received scholarship offers for the upcoming 2019-20 school year:

• MCS Senior Maria Catalina Alonso was accepted to and offered scholarships to Barry University, Grand Canyon University, Palm Beach Atlantic University, and Trinidad State. She will be playing basketball next year.
• MCS Senior Laura Torres Moreno was accepted to and offered scholarships, including basketball, to Lynn University, Miami Dade College, Nova Southeastern University, and St. Thomas University.
