State College High School baseball player Calvin Sichler is the Centre Daily Times Male Athlete of the Week.
Sichler drove in the winning runs in State College’s 6-5 victory over Central Mountain to capture the District 6 Class AAAA championship last Tuesday.
With one out and the Little Lions trailing 5-4, Sichler was unable to get down a bunt, but made up for it with runners at second and third. The senior smacked a two-run single down the left-field line to plate teammates Caleb Walls and Derek Van Horn as the Little Lions won their second consecutive district crown in walk-off fashion.
State College faces Red Land in the opening round of the PIAA playoffs at 4 p.m. Monday at Penn State Altoona.
