Williston Red Devils- Dalton Vonderstrasse and Logan Head
Vonderstrasse is a senior and is back from a team last season that advanced to the state tournament. He still remains as an essential piece to the Red Devils this season. So far, he has a batting average of .250 and is one of three players to have at least one RBI on the team. Head is only a sophomore on the team, but he can become one of the leaders for the Red Devils. His batting average is at .500 with one hit and one run. He’s also the player with the most stolen bases totaling to three and has no errors on the field so far during the season.
Wildwood Wildcats- James Cochran and Trevon Welcome
Cochran is showing off his potential at Wildwood. He is a senior with a batting average of .429 with three hits and two RBI for the Wildcats. If Cochran stays focused he can become a potential threat to the teams that play against Wildwood. Welcome is also a senior and has a batting average of .500. He is currently the only player on the team that has not been struck out. Welcome has four RBIs and three hits and is a player that can help the Wildcats succeed during this season.
