The Superconfence champion Lone Tree Lions had six players added to the all-conference list, with three on the first team.

Andrew Dodson, Logan Forbes, Jordan Quigley, Harrison Miller, Shay Hudacheck and Riley Stumpf were all nominated.

Andrew Dodson was the first selection of the first team pitchers. He threw a 1.97 ERA with 96 strikeouts and opponents hit just .141 off of him.

Logan Forbes was another first team selection for the infield. Forbes hit .357 with a triple and six doubles, and Harrison Miller was the final first team selection at utility. He hit .370 with six homeruns, three triples and seven doubles. He also had a .989 fielding percentage and pitched a 2.59 ERA with opponents hitting just .181 off of him.

Head coach Ryan Barnes says this is the most they have had all-conference in awhile, and that with this success, could come more from the younger kids.

“It’s a good stepping stone for a lot of our younger kids, we really have good numbers at our junior high right now, and for them to see the success at the upper levels is going to get them going,” Barnes said. “We our missing a few of our better athletes in the school, they’re focusing on other sports, and it would be nice to get a couple of them to come out.”

Lone Tree finished the conference 13-3.
