JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Providence senior outfielder Matt Fitzsimmons is our athlete of the week.
Fitzsimmons was a big part of last year's Stallions baseball team which won a state championship. That team had a dominant pitching staff, but the top three pitchers all graduated after last season.
Fitzsimmons and the Stallions went through some struggles early this season, but they've managed to get back to the Final Four where they will face Clearwater Central Catholic on Monday in Ft. Myers.
In a regional final win over Father Lopez this past weekend, Fitzsimmons had 4 RBI to lead Providence to a 7-5 win.
Matt will be playing baseball at the University of South Carolina Upstate next school year.
