The Southeast Ohio District Athletic Board released the all-district team selections for Div. II, III, and IV district baseball tournament on Tuesday. Hillsboro High School, Lynchburg-Clay High School, and Whiteoak High School combined to have seven athletes selected to either the first or second all-district teams.

In Div. II the Hillsboro Indians were represented by Cayse Cameron on the first team. The Indians were also represented on the second team by Hunter Chain. Both athletes had tremendous seasons for the Indians who finished with an overall record of 16-6. Both seniors were high level contributors to the overall success of the Indians baseball program this year and both richly deserve the extra recognition for their achievements.

In Div. III the Lynchburg-Clay Mustangs were represented by Josh Wolfe and Bricen Hess on the second team. The Mustangs finished the season with a 7-9 overall record. Despite the teams lack of success Wolfe and Hess were key contributors. Hess, a senior, was exceptional on the mound for Lynchburg this season and his production will be sorely missed in the rotation. Wolfe, a sophomore, was excellent behind the plate for the Mustangs as well as being a key contributor in the offense and his ability to build on a tremendous season going forward will be key for the Lynchburg baseball program next season.

In Div. IV the Whiteoak Wildcats were represented by Traeten Hamilton and Trever Yeager on the first team. Caleb West also represented the Wildcats as a second team selection. The Wildcats finished the season at an even 11-11, the .500 record shows that the team struggled at times this season. However, Hamilton, a sophomore, and Yeager, a junior, give the Wildcats something to look forward to in the coming seasons. Both players were excellent at the plate this season as well as demonstrating a strong defensive acumen in the field. West, a senior, was also a strong contributor for Whiteoak and leaves a void at short-stop that Coach Chris Veidt will have to fill before next season.

All seven athletes performed well for their respective teams throughout the season and through their hard work, dedication, and unselfishness earned the distinction of being selected as all district performers.
