Hinsdale South's Buonavolanto catches attention of college scouts
Don Buonavolanto keeps family name alive for Hinsdale South baseball
DARIEN — Don Buonavolanto got plunked on the knee with a baseball and sat out Hinsdale South’s baseball doubleheader with Leyden last weekend as a precaution.
“We’re pretty solid as a group defensively, so we probably missed him more at the plate,” Hinsdale South coach Paul Hoel said. “Not that he’s not a great defender, too, but it was one of those days with the wind blowing in and you knew it was going to be tough to score runs, and without him it was even tougher.”
Buonavolanto returned to action with a vengeance Monday, going 3-for-4 with three RBIs as the Hornets topped Leyden 4-1 to sweep the three-game West Suburban Gold series. The Hornets won the first two games of the series 2-1 and 1-0. The three-game sweep lifted the Hornets record to 10-3 overall, 7-2 in the Gold.
