HGP's 2021 District 1 Class 5A Championship Team 

HGP baseball to face a tough 2022 schedule

The Holy Ghost Prep baseball team, a traditional PIAA District One power, will face a top-shelf 2022 schedule this spring. The 20-game slate includes 10 games against Philadelphia Catholic League teams and four contests vs. Inter-Ac competition.

The tough 2022 schedule will certainly prepare the back-to-back PIAA District One Class 4A champion Firebirds, coached by Greg Olenski ’10, for district and possibly state playoff competition later this spring.  

“Without a doubt, we are playing the toughest schedule in the state,” says Olenski, one of the best players in HGP’s storied baseball history. “The schedule was designed to put our guys through adversity and uncomfortable situations—games vs. bigger classification schools, schools with top-ranked players, city schools and suburban schools.

“We will certainly be challenged and knocked down, but we will be more prepared than ever for district and state playoffs come late May/early June. The goal remains the same: Win championships and play into June. This schedule is a great stepping stone toward our team goal.”

This year’s edition of the Firebirds features four seniors who will officially commit to play college baseball at the school’s March 23rd signing day ceremony in Tyler McCord (Amherst College), Dillon Rooney (Clarkson University), Andrew Jones (Immaculata University), and Liam Parsons (Penn State-Abington). Senior lefty pitcher Nick Henn, who will attend Villanova University in the fall, will provide quality leadership on the mound. Henn is one of the team's tri-captains, along with Tyler McCord and Isaac Acosta. Holy Ghost Prep is also also home to some of the area’s top underclassmen, including hard-throwing junior pitcher Matt Goldenbaum (who has verbally committed to the University of South Florida) and gifted junior outfielder Aiden Robbins (a Seton Hall University commit).
