HomeTeam Hot Shots
A spotlight on the Times’ bay area players of the week. 
Female Hot Shot: Bobbi LaBrant, Indian Rocks Christian
Sport: Track and field 
Skinny: The junior had never finished higher than 10th at state in the pole vault her previous two seasons. At last week’s Class A meet, LaBrant was dominant in the event, winning her first state title by clearing 10 feet despite windy and wet conditions. “It took a little while, but it’s now starting to sink in that I’m a state champion,” she said. “It’s such a great feeling.” LaBrant also was sixth in the 800 (2:20.34) and teamed with Alex Buchanan, Mia Gillespie and Alexis Gates to take sixth in the 4x400 (4:08.21). “I’ve always been a runner, and that’s something I want to do in college,” LaBrant said. “But I think I might have to add the pole vault in there.”
Male Hot Shot: Dante Bosnic, Berkeley Prep 
Sport: Baseball
Skinny: The Berkeley Prep senior allowed back-to-back hits in the first inning of the Bucs’ 7-0 region quarterfinal win against Lakeland McKeel on Thursday. But those were the only ones he’d give up all night, as he threw 47 pitches — 37 for strikes — in five innings of work. Bosnic, who struck out three batters on nine pitches in the fifth frame, also came up big at the plate, starting a four-run third inning for the Bucs with a triple. Bosnic, a Brown commit, owns a .284 batting average, second highest on the team.
