CCHS baseball team honors players for season

CROSSVILLE — "It has been a year of ups and downs, and it has been a little frustrating. The seniors went through a lot of adversity this season. Today, there are just five seniors left from that (year's) freshmen class. You showed up to work everyday, regardless of the circumstances," said Jet baseball coach David Prichard Sunday afternoon at the annual banquet at Chuckles.

He also thanked the school adminstration, his coaching staff and the booster club for all of their support during the season.

The Hustle Award went to Bobby Uebelacker, who batted .193 with three doubles and five RBIs and led the team with a .972 fielding average (153 putouts, 22 assists) and was part of five double plays.

Dylan Fehr had the Best Teammate Award. The senior first baseman batted .227 with three doubles and eight RBIs, and had a fielding percentage of .908 (104 putouts and 12 assists). He was part of five double plays.

"Dylan had his ups and downs this year," said Prichard.

Wesley Hall was the District 6AAA Manager of the Year.

"He was the only manager to get tossed from a game. He is a pure baseball guy," added Prichard.

Matt Ledbetter set a school record for stolen bases with 28, while batting .292 with three doubles, one triple, three home runs and 14 RBIs, and posted a 1-8 record with one save, a 5.25 ERA, 37 walks, 47 strikeouts and eight hitbatsmen to earn All-District honors.
