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.

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.

  • Thoughts for this holy time of Easter

    The first performance of George Friderick Handel's masterpiece, "Messiah," was given in Dublin, Ireland, on April 13, 1742, where it was well received. When it was performed in England there were criticisms of the music, performers and location of the performance. It was held that the subject matter was too exalted to perform in an opera house, but rather it should be performed in church. Wouldn't it be interesting if we knew how many times this magnificent music has been performed in the past 272 years?
