Brandon Wolski and Cody Harrel, both juniors, were named both All District in the 4A-4 and to the All State teams, head coach Darby Ulmer announced last week.
Wolski and Harrel were joined on the All District team by James Ray, Cody Simpson and Jesse Frost.
Wolski got the nod by going 7-1 as a pitcher. His 56 innings pitched were more than triple any teammate. Besides accounting for over half the team’s wins, Wolski also saved two games for the Bearcats. He struck out 113 hitters and had a 2.75 earned run average.
Wolski, who also played a variety of positions when he wasn’t pitching, including behind the plate and third base also hit third in the order on most days. He compiled a .375 average with four doubles, and two home runs. He also drove in 17 and scored 23 times.
Harrel, the shortstop and sometimes pitcher, hit leadoff and did so at a .370 clip. Harrel had three doubles, two triples and two home runs in addition to 22 runs scored and 14 runs batted in.
On the mound Harrel was 1-0 with a save and 22 strike outs.
It is ironic that Wolski and Harrel were all state for the regular season conference champions, because the two are now three-year starters because they were freshmen when ninth grade students were permitted to join the baseball team for the first time.
Frost, the only senior on the team, played third base and left field. He hit primarily in the fifth spot and fashioned a .371 average with a team best 21 RBI.
Simpson, a junior, played right field and hit .364 with three doubles and 13 RBI. Simpson scored 17 times.
Ray pitched, played third base and caught. He was 3-0 on the mound. Hitting cleanup most of the time, he led the team with a .396 average with five doubles a triple and a team best three home runs. Ray also drove in 17 and scored 20 runs.
