BROCKTON, Mass. -- Following the conclusion of tonight's MIAA Division 1A State Championship "Super Eight" Tournament, ESPNBoston.com and its High Schools staff recognized Scott Creedon, junior righthanded pitcher and shortstop of the Braintree High Wamps, as the Most Valuable Player of the Super 8.
This is the second year ESPNBoston.com has given out a Super 8 MVP award. Last year, Newton North's Dylan Sbordone took home the honors after leading the Tigers to the inaugural Division 1A state title.
Creedon picked up his second win of the tournament with a five-strikeout, complete-game effort, allowing two earned runs and issuing no walks as the Wamps beat St. John's Prep, 7-2, in the winner-take-all second game of the Division 1A State Final. In three starts in the Super 8, Creedon notched 17 strikeouts, second only to St. John's Prep's Justin Foley for the tournament. He also recorded five RBI at the plate for the Wamps over their five tournament games.
