Baseball: Wharton P Collin Woody commits to College of Central Florida

Wharton pitcher Collin Woody committed to the College of Central Florida, a junior college in Lecanto, Fla., he said Saturday in a text message. Along with fellow senior hurler Shaun Rubin, Woody led Wharton (21-9) in its most successful season in program history as the Wildcats won their first first title and advanced to the Class 8A region final.

On the year, Woody went 9-2 with a 1.86 ERA and a team-high 77 strikeouts in 79 innings. He threw two complete games in the playoffs, going eight innings and striking out 12 in a 2-0 win over Alonso (he also hit the two-run double in the top of the eighth) and then seven innings in a 1-0, 3-hit shutout win over Durant. Additionally, he pitched seven innings in relief, striking out 11, in Wharton's 2-1 win over Sarasota Riverview in the region quarterfinals.

In addition to his pitching, Woody hit a team-high .341 with 24 runs scored, 21 RBIs, 11 doubles and four home runs.
