Adams, Hall named first-team all-state

From Staff, Wire Reports

South Harrison's Ben Hall and Liberty's Trey Adams were among those selected to the Class AA all-state first team released Thursday by the West Virginia Sports Writers Association.

Adams was named the first team's catcher. He batted .429 with 32 RBIs in helping lead the Mountaineers to a 24-8 record.

"Trey is very deserving of this," Liberty coach Pete Iquinto said. "He made a position change this season when we needed a catcher, and he was instrumental in the season we had. He was very coachable, and he's only going to get better when he goes to college."

Hall, a senior, was one of the three outfielders selected. He earned all-state honors for the second consecutive year after hitting .488 with seven home runs and 33 RBIs.

"It's a good feeling to be honored two years in a row," Hall said. "I just thank God for giving me the ability to play, and baseball is a great sport.

"Having two players named (to the first team) says a lot. I think this area is overlooked for the most part, but I think people around here know that there is talent."

Chapmanville, ranked in the top three throughout the season, placed two players on the Class AA all-state team. Sophomore outfielder Casey Bowling was named the team captain.

Bowling led Chapmanville, which lost to Wyoming East in its regional title game, with a .507 average. He hit seven home runs and stole 15 bases.

Bowling is another in a line of underclassmen to produce for a perennially strong Chapmanville program.

Bowling was one of 11 first-time all-staters on the team. He was joined in the outfield by Hall and Steve Iams of Magnolia.

Iams hit .458.

Bowling's teammate, junior Aaron Kelley, was named to the team as a pitcher, joining Wyoming East's Davy Harris and Weir's Rossi Gaudio.

Kelley posted an 8-2 record for the Tigers. He had a 0.98 earned run average and 81 strikeouts. Harris, a repeat first-teamer, went 6-1 with a 1.90 ERA and 74 strikeouts in 48 innings pitched for the state finalist Warriors. Gaudio was 8-0 with a 0.69 ERA.

Making up the infield are Jesse Miller and Justin Tabor of Summers County, Michael Hill of Wyoming East and Jared Sanders of Wayne.

Miller and Tabor made up the left side of the infield for state semifinalist Summers County. Miller, an all-stater a year ago as a junior, hit .494 with eight homers and 11 doubles. He drove in 43 runs and scored 45. Tabor, a junior, hit .476 with 10 home runs, 12 doubles, three triples and 28 RBIs from the leadoff position. He led the team with 50 hits and 50 runs scored.

Hill led Wyoming East in virtually every offensive category. He hit .500 and had a .657 on-base percentage. His 14 stolen bases, 39 hits and 39 runs scored also led the team.

Sanders was the leading hitter for Wayne, which was the state's top-ranked team for much of the season before being knocked off by Chapmanville in their regional tournament. He had a .427 average and .728 slugging percentage to go along with five homers, 10 doubles and 42 RBIs.

Filling the utility spots are David Ferguson of Wayne, Justin Jenkins and Josh Dolly of Frankfort and Will Hall of Tug Valley.

Ferguson had an 8-3 pitching record with a 1.35 ERA. He hit .406 with a .723 slugging percentage.

Jenkins hit .528 with 44 RBIs and stole 32 bases. As a pitcher he was 8-3 with a 2.22 ERA. Dolly hit .500 and drove in 41 runs. He was 7-2 on the mound with 103 strikeouts and a 1.80 ERA.

Hall batted .524.

Mike Honce of Bridgeport and Jerred Novotny of South Harrison were second team honorees.
