MEDFORD - Moorestown High School senior Ryan Lynch committed to North Carolina for baseball on July 26, 2022.

He accredited basketball to helping him on the diamond.

His balance and coordination as a pitcher are on also display when he pivots in the low post on the hardwood. His movement skills allow him to play under control and he also understands the importance of competitiveness.

The North Carolina baseball commit scored the go-ahead basket in the paint with 1:50 left to play as Moorestown rallied past Shawnee, 53-49, in an Olympic Conference Patriot Division showdown on Tuesday night. The Quakers improved their record to 15-6 and seized sole possession of first place in the division standings.

Lynch completed his job.
