Local youths play in NCAA regional baseball tournament


Two Ponte Vedra High School graduates played in the NCAA regional baseball tournaments last week, contributing to their teams’ efforts.

Walker Sheller pitched for Stetson University, closing four games to bring home the trophy in the Atlantic Sun tournament for Stetson. The team was later eliminated June 4 at the Coral Gables Regional Championships after falling to Florida Atlantic.

Max Miller, meanwhile, played for Duke University before the team lost to University of South Carolina Saturday.

Both Sheller and Miller played on the Ponte Vedra baseball team that won the state tournament in 2013.
