Athlete of the Issue: Jack Winnay ’22

The Belmont Hill baseball team has had a remarkable turnaround season this year. A team is a particular group of players, but captain Jack Winnay ‘22 holds the pack together. As a freshman at Belmont Hill, Jack was a part of an ISL championship team in 2019. “My sophomore year was cut extremely short due to Covid-19. Junior year was nothing special, as the team struggled to win ballgames and the season was never fully put together due to Covid.” Jack’s senior year, this season, is only the second real ISL season Jack has played in, and it has not disappointed. Jack leads the team in batting average and quality at-bat percentage, fighting in every single at-bat. The Wake Forest baseball commit is more than just a great baseball player. Jack is a great leader in the locker room, cracking jokes as he says his go-to lines, “I have that as tuff,” or “I don’t hate that,” and having fun with his younger teammates. Overall, Jack is a great teammate in the locker room, and his play on the field reflects it. Jack ended the interview with, “It was awesome to play with such a fun group of guys and compete with them. I love the direction that this team is headed.”
