The Greenbrier East Spartans baseball team felt they greatly underachieved after being upset by Oak Hill in the sectional finals, but even then, still managed to place four players on the all-state teams.
Jordan Mize and Noah Hanna made the second team while Caleb Thomas and Darris Boswell got honorable mention honors.
Mize, on his way to Glenville State next season, hit .382 on the season with a home run and 20 RBI’s. He also scored 25 runs and tied for the team lead with eight doubles.
Hanna hit .338 with 24 RBI’s — tied for the team lead. He also scored 20 runs and had eight doubles. Hanna will play for Allegany College of Maryland next spring.
Thomas excelled on the pitcher’s mound all year and finished with a 5-1 record and a team-leading 0.90 ERA. He also had 54 strikeouts and will take his talents to Bluefield State.
Boswell was the lone underclassman to be recognized. He had a team-best .438 average and knocked in 18 runs. His 38 runs scored led the team by a wide margin. Boswell will return to the Spartans next year with a lot of hype surrounding him.
