After helping Morrison to an unbeaten season in league play, senior Kyle Dermody was named Three Rivers Conference Player of the Year. The Mustangs’ Scott Vance was named Coach of the Year.

Dermody was one of six Morrison players selected to the all-conference first team. Senior catcher Ben Raney, senior infielder Zach Greul and junior outfielder Will Bird joined Dermody as unanimous picks, while sophomore outfielder Danny Dennehey and junior infielder Corbin Blean also were first-team players.

The Mustangs finished conference play with an 11-0 record, the same as their freshman team.

Conference runner-up Prophetstown/Erie (9-2) placed junior pitcher Eann Cox and senior outfielder Brandon Borkovec on the first team.

Junior Zach Ryder represented Fulton on the first team. The Steamers went 3-9 in conference play, then went on to win a Class 1A regional title.
