The Dwyer Varsity Panther’s baseball team suffered a loss Tuesday night against Belen Jesuit in a close 5-4 regional 4-7 A game. Even so, the 2015-2016 Dwyer baseball team had the most successful season in Dwyer’s history. One of the key players who contributed to Dwyer’s roster in this year’s thriving season was star pitcher Colten Rendon.

“I was sad because it was my last high school game – all the practices – it’s all over now. What’s keeping me going is the anticipation of baseball in college and hopefully beyond,” Rendon said.

Rendon pitched for the first three innings against Belen Jesuit allowing only two runs.

Rendon has committed to playing college baseball at Winthrop University in South Carolina and is looking forward to it.

“I’m excited – thankful for the opportunity for a great season – a career of high school. I’m ready for college. I’ll miss all of my friends, Sarah, and high school coaches and being able to go home every day,” Rendon said.

Rendon had a big impact to Dwyer’s 8-1 outstanding season this year and a 19-11 overall record. Rendon has been playing baseball for as long as he can remember. He was born in San Antonio, Texas where he first picked up a bat and lived there until he was 10 years old. He later moved to Jupiter, FL and continued his baseball career at JCP (Jupiter Community Park) fields.

Rendon said he will never forget his first little league coaches. “My first coach growing up was Tony Kinkade from San Antonio. He was my coach for six to seven years. He taught me the fundamentals at a young age,” Rendon said.

Rendon will now look for mentorship at Winthrop University in the fall. Until then he will enjoy his summer.
