Robin Mowatt, Baseball

Though the baseball team fields seven seniors on its roster, its most consistent performer may be a junior. Robin Mowatt, who pitches and plays shortstop for the Wildcats, has taken on a leadership role despite being one of the youngest players on the team. According to baseball coach Kim Ahearn, Mowatt sets a standard for his teammates to match.


“He is one of those young players that lead by example,” said Ahearn. “He is always working extremely hard and thinking about ways to improve.”

Not only does Mowatt bring leadership to the team, he also puts up statistics that speak for themselves. At the plate, Mowatt leads the Wildcats with twenty hits, ten runs, five doubles and three triples. He has only struck out one time in 38 at-bats, and his .435 batting average is among the best in the county.

This is Mowatt’s second full season on the varsity squad after spending his freshman campaign with the JV team. He has also gained experience by playing on numerous club and travel teams. Still, the chemistry that accompanies this year’s team is unparalleled by any other club Mowatt has been a part of.

“This team is one of the closest teams I’ve been on,” he said. “All of us love to play and we are all good friends, even off the field.”

If all goes according to plan, this chemistry will help propel the team into the playoffs with momentum, and poise them for a run.

“I believe we have the potential to beat any team as long as we produce when we need to,” said Mowatt. “I can see us doing very well if the team gets on track and stays there.”
