FORSYTH (WCIA) — Evan Foster is the WCIA 3 Athlete of the Week. The Maroa-Forsyth senior threw a seven inning perfect game in the Trojans’ 3-0 regional title win. Foster struck out 11, throwing 84 pitches in the victory, along with hitting a double and triple, scoring two out of his team’s three runs. Next month, Foster will head to the Naval Academy, where he will try to walk-on to the baseball team, with dreams of becoming a pilot.

“It’s a great opportunity for me, not just for baseball but academically and being able to serve my country,” Foster said. “If I were able to make the team at Navy, that would be a bonus.”

Foster is now eligible for a $1,000 scholarship we’ll give to one boy and one girl this summer. If you know a deserving high school student who should be our next weekly winner, fill out the nomination form here:
