South star shines for the Valley

Harlingen High School South junior Zach Flores was recently named 5A First Team All-State Second Baseman by the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association.  Zach was also named 31-5A 1st team All-District this season and 1st Team All-Valley.

Zach hit .505 with 10 doubles, 3 triples, 47 RBI, and 31 runs.  Zach set a school record for batting average (.505) and was within 5 RBI of setting a school record set by Michael Johnson in 2007 (52).

Zach was also named to the 2nd Team All-State, 2nd Team All-Valley, and 31-5A 2nd Team All-District after the 2010 season.

“It’s a huge honor for Zach to not only represent himself and his family, but also Harlingen South, Harlingen School district, and the entire Rio Grande Valley,” Coach Tony Leal said. “It is an honor that is very difficult to reach, but Zach has worked hard to receive this prestigious recognition.”

“Zach has really improved during his time here at Harlingen South,” Leal said.  “His improvement has come from his hard work both on and off the playing field.  Both his strength and speed have really improved because of his dedication.”
