The Archbishop Murphy baseball nine this spring features a talented dynamic duo. So who are these two young guns? They would be senior pitcher/1st sacker Levi MaVorhis and Junior shortstop Trever Morrison. The exhilarating pair have the Wildcats off to nice 7-0 start on the hardball season.
The fireballing MaVorhis was a 1st team All-Cascade Conference choice, as well as MVP runner-up a season ago. As a Junior Levi was 6-1 with a tidy 1.72 e.r.a. on the bump for Murphy. He batted .396 with 4 long balls, 8 doubles and 16 runs batted in.
MaVorhis plays Summer ball with the Seattle Bombers U18 wood bat ball club. Last summer he batted .366 and had a 2.66 earned run average on the mound for the Bombers. Levi MaVorhis is a 6'3" 215 pounder who has signed with Bellevue Community College, but is still looking for bigger and better things.
So far this season, MaVorhis is 3-0 with a 2.33 e.r.a. as a pitcher and is roping the ball at a .400 clip with 7 ribbie's through 7 games.
Trever Morrison is a slick fielding shortstop with a booming bat to match. The 5'11" 165 pounder is off to a torrid start this season. Morrison is batting .609 with 14 runs scored, 3 doubles, 5 r.b.i.'s and 7 stolen bases.
Last spring as a super Sophomore Morrison was a 1st team All-Cascade Conference selection as well as a 2nd team All-State 2A pick. The table setting Morrison batted .381 with 2 homer's and 26 runs batted in. He also scored 23 runs and swiped 14 bags in 16 attempts.
So does Morrison play summer ball you may ask? Oh yes he does. He hones his craft in the summer with state American Legion powerhouse Seattle Chaffey baseball club.
Last season the Wildcats finished 17-0 in league and 19-3 overall, getting knocked out in state 2A regional action.
This season with the M&M crew of MaVorhis and Morrison leading the charge, Murphy has bigger and better things in mind.
