PLAYERS TO WATCH
Dawson Robbins – Broken Bow
A three-year starter at catcher and pitcher, Robbins is a very hard-working young man.
Brat Hallman – Clayton
A top-level performer as shortstop and as a catcher, Brat continues to make spectacular plays look routine with his arm strength and range. He swung the bat to produce a .667 average while using his speed to steal 20 bases last fall and is anxious for the spring season to begin.
Zack Marsh – Haworth
Senior catcher leads the team in batting average and on-base percentage.
Trenyce Noah – Battiest
Trenyce is always working to get better. Besides practice, she puts in hours of extra work. She is an outstanding athlete and teammate.
Kinley Barron – Whitesboro
Kinley is a leader for the underclassman on the team. She has led the team in batting average for the past three years. She is a solid all-around player on offense as well as defense. Her work ethic goes above and beyond what is expected of her. She is absolutely clutch in big-game situations.
UNDERCLASSMEN TO WATCH
Trenton Shomo – Broken Bow
Shomo is a talented baseball player that works hard and continues to get better.
Tayton Qualls – Haworth
A great kid, Tayton will look to have a big role on the team this season.
Gracie Tohnika – Battiest
Gracie looks to help the Lady Panthers as a utility player who may be called on to play multiple positions.
Madison Grogan – Whitesboro
Madison hits with power and will make a big impact on this season. She hit several home runs as an eighth-grader and she is expected to do the same this season. Madison is a lefty that throws with a lot of velocity and accuracy. She can play infield or outfield very well.
Jagger Smith – Broken Bow
He is a hard worker that goes out of his way to help the team whenever he can.
Tyler Dicketts – Haworth
Dicketts may not be the star of the team, but he is a solid everyday player.
Kaeleigh Brown – Battiest
Kaeleigh started in slowpitch and fastpitch at second base for four years. Kaeleigh was among the team leaders in hitting percentage last slowpitch season.
Kayleigh Walker – Whitesboro
Kayleigh has worked hard and vastly improved her game over the past few years. She plays outfield and is quick enough to catch anything remotely close to her. With two outs in the state tournament, she hit a walk-off grand slam. She hit around 13 grand slams last season. So even though she doesn’t have the best batting average, she is clutch in big-game situations.
