FALMOUTH HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT-ATHLETE NAMED
GATORADE MAINE BASEBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR
CHICAGO (May 30, 2017) — In its 32nd year of honoring the nation’s best high school athletes, The Gatorade Company, today announced Cam Guarino of Falmouth High School as its 2016-17 Gatorade Maine Baseball Player of the Year. Guarino is the first Gatorade Maine Baseball Player of the Year to be chosen from Falmouth High School.

The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field, distinguishes Guarino as Maine’s best high school baseball player. Now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Baseball Player of the Year, Guarino joins an elite alumni association of past state award-winners in 12 sports, including Derek Jeter (1991-92, Kalamazoo High School, Mich.), Jon Lester (2001-02, Bellarmine Preparatory School, Wash.), David Price (2003-04, Blackman High School, Tenn.), Clayton Kershaw (2005-06, Highland Park High School, Texas), Rick Porcello (2006-2007, Seaton Hall Preparatory School, N.J.) and Kris Bryant (2009-10, Bonanza High School,
Nev.).

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound senior left-handed pitcher had led the Yachtsmen to a 13-0 record at the time of his selection. Guarino owned a 6-0 record with a 0.18 ERA through 13 games, striking out 50 with just four walks in 38.1 innings pitched. A three-time First Team All-Conference honoree, he was also named to the Maine Sunday Telegram All-State Team and has compiled a 28-2 record in his varsity career.

Guarino has volunteered locally on behalf of youth baseball leagues, the Big Buddy program, an animal shelter and the Garbage to Garden curbside composting initiative. “Guarino isn’t a big kid physically, but he has a commanding presence on the mound,” said Brad Smith, head coach at Gray-New Gloucester High. “He’s got good stuff, he mixes speeds and he really knows how to pitch. He’s got all the tools.”

Guarino has maintained an A average in the classroom. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to play baseball on scholarship at the University of New Haven this fall....
