Red-hot at the plate, Sewickley Academy duo has Panthers in title talks

SEWICKLEY — At this point in the 2022 season in WPIAL baseball, it’s very rare that a team has one player hitting over .600 at the plate, let alone two. Yet that’s exactly what the red-hot Sewickley Academy Panthers’ baseball team has at its disposal this spring with junior Adin Zorn and sophomore Jordan Smith.

Zorn, a Penn State commit, is hitting .676 — up from .571 a year ago — along with a .733 on-base percentage and a 1.162 slugging percentage on the year, increasing his numbers across the board after a dominant sophomore season that put the Panthers’ star on the WPIAL map. Not to be outdone, Smith is enjoying a massive breakout sophomore season for the Panthers, hitting .600 on the year with a .689 on-base percentage and a .628 slugging percentage.
