Perry standout sophomore Will Whiton was named to the Class 3A All-State Second Team outfield by the Iowa Newspaper Association recently. The teams are selected by a statewide group of sportswriters; full details of the three All-State teams from all four classes can be found at

Whiton is one of the fastest athletes in Class 3A and his speed paid dividends on the diamond throughout the season, as he was 10th among all classes and led 3A in stolen bases with 41 on 42 attempts. He was fourth in 3A with a .480 batting average and had 47 hits that included 12 doubles and two triples. He scored 33 runs, drove in 22 runs and drew 17 walks while striking out just nine times in 34 games.
