Port St. Lucie High to induct four alumni into athletics hall of fame 

By Jeff Greer

The Port St. Lucie High School Athletics Hall of Fame committee voted on Monday to induct four former standouts to the hall.

Florida State baseball star Mike McGee, who won the John Olerud Two-Way College Player of the Year award this season, leads the class. McGee played third base and pitched for the Seminoles. The Diamondbacks selected him in the 41st round of this year’s Major League Baseball amateur draft. McGee graduated from Port St. Lucie in 2007.

Two other baseball players made the list: Chad Durick and Phil Rorabaugh.

Durick graduated in 1995 and was the first Port St. Lucie grad to sign a professional baseball contract. He signed with the Mets, but never made it past the rookie leagues before playing independent ball for two seasons.

Rorabaugh, a 2005 alum, pitched for two seasons at University of North Florida before signing with the Houston Astros in 2009 as an undrafted free agent. Rorabaugh played for the Gulf Coast and Greeneville Astros, both rookie-league teams, in 2009 and 2010.

And last but certainly not least, golfer Jennifer Gartin made the list. A 2007 grad, Gartin won the 2010 junior college national championship with Daytona State College.
