Area pitchers tops in Three Rivers

MORRISON, Ill. – Three dominating pitchers from area schools and a slugger from Amboy headline the All-Three Rivers Conference baseball team.

Fulton’s Ethan Jones was a unanimous choice on the mound and was joined on the first team by fellow juniors Bill Lee Greul of Morrison and Kenneth Cole of Erie/Prophetstown. The latter two, both left-handers, helped their teams tie for the league title with 12-2 records, then dueled in the regional final, won 1-0 by Cole and the Panthers.

Jones was one of three unanimous picks on the all-conference first team for the Steamers, who finished third in the conference with an 8-6 record. Junior Cody Huff was selected in the infield, and senior Colin Tichler was picked in the outfield.

Morrison senior infielder Danny Willis and Erie/Prophetstown senior outfielder Zach Hart also were unanimous picks on the first team, as was Amboy designated hitter/utility player Tyson Powers. Hart, Powers and Kewanee catcher Dayton Ince all repeated on the first team, with Ince earning first-team honors for the third time.

Erie/Prophetstown catcher Zach Inskeep rounded out the list of area players on the first team. Inskeep and Willis both were second-team picks a year ago.

Jason Orman of Erie/Prophetstown was named Coach of the Year, while Powers was voted Player of the Year. Powers also was a repeat performer on the first team.

Area players on the second team included Fulton senior catcher Austin Manon, Morrison senior pitcher Alex Fischbach and senior infielder Alex Volckmann and Erie/Prophetstown’s Ethan Howard, a junior pitcher; Carter Ames, a senior infielder; Owen McConnell, a junior infielder; Brandon McCullough, a senior outfielder; and Kyle Coleman, a junior designated hitter/utility player.

Fulton’s Matt Dail; Morrison’s Connor Duncan, Brock Deter, Joey Brackemyer and Andrew Connelly; and Erie/Prophetstown’s Jordan Chandler were named honorable mention.
