Six members of Glenbrook's MAIS Class A State Championship baseball team were recently honored with spots on the MAIS District 7A All-District teams.
Connor Clark, Logan Clark, Spencer White, Jacob White, Austin Palmier and Conner Copeland were all voted to the teams by the district's coaches.
"These guys all did great jobs this year," Glenbrook head coach Jonathan Hardy said. "And their efforts, along with the rest of the team got us the state championship."
First Team Players
Connor Clark was the Apaches starting catcher, and led the team in batting average, on base percentage, hits and RBIs.
"Connor played very well defensively behind the plate," Hardy said. "And he led us in four offensive categories."
Logan Clark played center field and pitched for Glenbrook. He led the team in stolen bases with 28, and struck out 77 batters in 44 innings while sporting a 1.14 ERA.
"Logan was our best defensive outfielder and made a number of great plays," Hardy said. "And on the mound he was very consistent for us. He won plenty of huge games for us this year, including the South State Championship Game. We also used him as our closer a lot this year."
Austin Palmier played second and shortstop as well as pitched in a number of games for the Apaches this season.
"Austin was a good senior leader for us," Hardy said. "He played both middle infield positions for us. He's also taking part in the MAIS All-Star game this Friday."
Jacob White was Glenbrook's starting left fielder for most of the season.
"Jacob was very consistant for us," Hardy said. "He played very good defense for us in the outfield and got a number of key hits for us down the stretch. He was also very dangerous on the base paths."
Spencer White went 9-2 for the Apaches on the mound. He struck out 56 batters in 61 innings. His ERA for the year was 1.38.
"Spencer was one of our go-to pitchers,' Hardy said. "We knew we could count on him if he was in there, and he was the winning pitcher in the State Championship Game."
Conner Copeland played third base and pitched for the Apaches.
"He went 4-0 on the mound and played solid defense at third base," Hardy said. "He had a lot of key hits for us this year. I know in the State Championship game he had a double that put us up 4-2. I'm expecting even more from him over the next two years."
