The untimely passing of Brush junior Alec Kornet in February rocked the entire Arcs community, especially the teammates he played with on the soccer, hockey and baseball teams.
When Tony Maniglia’s team began its season with four games in Tampa, Fla., a pall still hung over the Arcs. Then, in Brush’s first game against New York’s Trinity School, Alec’s younger brother, sophomore Michael, stepped to the plate in the seventh inning of a tie game.
Kornet’s single sent Evan Mularo home and the Arcs walked off winners after a moment Maniglia couldn’t have scripted any better.
“It was enlightening,” Maniglia said. “It really was. Everybody was down and here comes the brother to win the game.”
