Peltier leads Eagles on the diamond


Ryan Peltier has never been one to shy away from the spotlight. He’s been the starting quarterback for the CJ Eagles since his sophomore year, but the junior saves his best for the baseball field.

“Football, you only get that one chance on Friday nights to prove yourself,” Peltier said. “With baseball you get multiple chances in a week to get wins and play good and have fun.”

Peltier is making the most of his chances this season, he’s the Eagles shortstop and hits third in the line-up. He’s also CJ’s best pitcher with a 7-0 record, and an ERA of 0.92 with 40 strikeouts in 38 innings.

He completely knows the game, he’s a very competitive person,” Eagles Head Coach Mike Barhorst said. “He always wants to get better and does not like losing, he’s going to do anything he can to win a ball game.”

Peltier is also solid at the plate, he’s hitting .375 with 19 RBI and 22 runs scored.

The Eagles will face off against Badin in the Division II sectional finals next Thursday at Miamisburg High School. The Rams are were state runners-up a year ago but CJ beat them twice in five days last month.

Ryan Peltier is the 7 Sports/Jeff Schmitt Auto Group Student Athlete of the Week.
