The shortstop, a Wichita State signee, is hitting .439 with 26 RBIs.

Hunter Harrison, Hilldale

Harrison is 7-1 with a 1.73 ERA. He's also hitting. 327 with 26 RBIs.

Connor Patton, Tecumseh

Patton put together a pair of dominating performances on the mound to help the Savages to their first state tournament appearance since 1987.

Barry J. Sanders, Heritage Hall

Speed is one of the Changers' biggest strengths, and Sanders, the Stanford football signee, is one of their top threats on the bases.


Blake Battenfield, Verdigris

Battenfield was 10-2 with a 1.30 ERA for last year's state champs and has put together another solid season as a junior.

Blake Campo, Plainview

The infielder and pitcher left a mark both on the mound and at the plate in regionals, clinching an opening run-rule win with a home run and throwing effectively later in the tournament.

Michael Lowe, Jones

Lowe is hitting .495 with 13 home runs and 52 RBIs.


Evan Anderson, Dale

As a sophomore last year, the left-hander belted three home runs in the Pirates' opening-round win over Frederick.

Brady Baugh, Hennessey

The senior shortstop hit better than .500 last season and is a big reason why the Eagles are in the field.

C.J. Gregory, Tushka

The senior is both one of Tushka's top hitters and one of its top arms.
