A Mariner Middle School honor roll student, he will be attending Cape in the fall. When not playing for the Vikings, Luke plays the infield for the Bagel Bombers Crouch squad.

Kye Wells

This rising Sussex Tech freshman is a young man of few words, but he makes a lot of noise with his play on the baseball diamond. In 46 at bats in the playoffs with the Cape/Georgetown Junior All-Stars, Kye had 23 hits, including 15 singles, six doubles, one triple and a grand slam in a win over Connecticut. He was credited with 14 RBIs and 23 runs scored. "Kye's bat was on fire," said manager Zac Crouch. His average for the playoffs was .500 with a slugging percentage of .739 and an on-base percentage of .574. He pitched 8.2 innings too, striking out 12 batters, and had a .800 fielding percentage. He also came in from the bullpen with a man on second and one out to get the final two outs against New Jersey to preserve the win.
