Overall in 2012, Lane is hitting .444 with 6 doubles, a home run, 18 RBI and 20 runs scored.

Pitcher of the Week: Trevor Taylor, Sr., Mt Si
Senior right hander Trevor Taylor is this week's winner thanks to a complete game shutout win over Mercer Island. Taylor, who is the third different Wildcat to win pitcher of the week this season, went 6 innings, allowing just 4 hits and striking out 7 in an 11-0 Mount Si victory. He needed just 80 pitches to go the distance, throwing 53 of them for strikes and not walking a single batter. Taylor has been on top of his game all season, working 30 innings and allowing just 4 earned runs - good for a 0.93 ERA.
