Heinzman, Swinehart lead quartet of players with post-season prizes
Cooper Heinzman was selected first team All Conference and All District. Cooper, a Junior, was our leadoff hitter and batted .451 for the season and .528 in league play. Cooper was equally impressive in the field where he only committed one error all season.
“Cooper is a team leader who never takes an at bat off. When Cooper gets on base, we score and he did that 25 times this year. Cooper is a tough player who sells his body out”. ~Coach Bomay
Connor Swinehart was selected first team All Conference and All District and All District. Connor, a sophomore, batted 333 overall and 317 in league play. Pitching Connor had 2 wins and 3 and an ERA of 2.000.
“Connor was moved around in the line up a lot until he finally found his spot at number two in the batting order. Being number 2 in the line-up gave Connor lots of opportunity to drive in Cooper which he did. Connor lead the team with 18 RBIs. “Connor has a potent bat, a live arm and plenty of speed.” ~Coach Bomay
Hunter Lay was selected Honorable Mention All Conference. Hunter, a senior, batted 267 overall and 333 in league. Hunter on defense had a 958 fielding percentage.
“Hunter is a player who just makes contact and only had 11 strikeouts this year. Being a lefty he gave us many opportunities to hit and run. Hunter took ownership of first base this and worked on his defense on his own every day. Hunters off season training consisted of getting in the cage 4-5 times a week. He set the bar high for young guys coming up” ~Coach Bomay
Jarred Heideman was selected as an All District pitcher. Jarred, a Junior, was 8-4 on the season with a 2.500 ERA.
“Jarred is a pitcher that keeps us in every game he pitches. When Jarred is on the mound we have a great chance of winning” ~Coach Bomay
