Ava Nunez shines in Immokalee loss

Ava Nunez battled one of the nation’s top rated high school pitching prospects in a pitchers’ duel between Immokalee and Naples that lasted nine innings on March 1.

Naples won, 2-1.

Nunez pitched all nine innings and scattered seven hits with seven strikeouts and three walks. She held Naples scoreless until the Golden Eagles tied the game at 1-1 in the sixth.

Immokalee’s lone run came in the first inning.

Macy Miles, a University of Central Florida signee, delivered a no-hit shutout with 16 strikeouts. Miles was ranked the 72nd top pitching prospect in the class of 2022 by Extra Innings Baseball. She is the daughter of Les Miles, who coached LSU to a national football championship.

The following week Nunez fanned 10 batters in seven innings as she led Immokalee to a 3-1 win against Barron Collier.

As of late March, Nunez had a 3-2 record with 32 strikeouts.
