WOODWARD — Postseason honors were recently bestowed on four members of the W-G baseball team as well as to five Hawk softball players.
Seniors Andrew McCune (first base) and Tyler Wiedner (pitcher) were named to the North Central All-District team in Class 1A baseball, with fellow senior Chris McConahay (pitcher) picked for the second team.
Despite their All-District status, McCune and Wiedner were only second team choices in the All-West Central Conference voting, with McConahay and junior shortstop Jake Smiley named to the All-WCC honorable mention list.
McCune hit .494 with 13 doubles and four home runs while driving in 31 runs with his 44 hits. He scored 27 runs and was 23-of-26 in stolen bases. He leaves as the school record holder for career hits (123), home runs (10), RBIs (99) and runs (85) with his 44 hits this year the most in a season by a Hawk.
Wiedner was 9-1 on the hill, the most wins in a season for a W-G pitcher in school history. He threw 61 innings with an ERA of 1.26 while allowing the opposition to hit just .179. The right hander struck out 60 batters while walking 29 and hitting three.
McConahay (5-7) set new school records for most innings pitched in a season with 81-2/3 and for lowest season ERA with a slim 1.11 mark, which was fourth best in Class 1A among hurlers throwing at least 80 frames. He finished with 76 strikeouts, 17 walks and 12 hit batsman and also departs as the school record holder in career stolen bases with 56.
In addition, McConahay earned Second Team All-State All-Academic status. Only 44 players from among all four classes statewide are chosen for the two All-Academic teams.
The W-G softball team had senior Julia Evans (infield) and freshman Dalaney Bice (catcher) earn All-WCC first team honors, with junior Alyssa Jack (outfield) named to the second team while honorable mention status was granted to sophomore Annie Webb and freshman Meagan Bandstra.
Evans hit .444 and led the team with 33 runs scored. She hit 11 doubles, two triples and one home run and drove in 31 runs.
