Biglerville’s Orner and Brewer headline YAIAA baseball coaching all-star teams | Sports
Biglerville seniors Connor Orner and Logan Brewer headlined a collection of Times Area players named to YAIAA Baseball Coaching All-Star Teams.
Orner was named Division 4 Player of the Year after batting .411 with 23 hits, 20 RBIs and 24 runs scored in 20 games. Orner had four doubles and four home runs, posting a .696 slugging percentage and .570 on-base percentage. In addition to his base hits, the Salem University tackle drew a dozen walks and was hit by the pitch 10 times.
Brewer, an infielder by trade, put himself ahead of Canner’s staff and won pitcher of the year honors. The right-hander went 4-2 with 41 strikeouts and a 2.97 ERA in 33 innings pitched, helping Biglerville earn a third straight division title and a District 3 3A playoff bid.
Brewer will continue his career next season at Lebanon Valley College.
Southwestern junior Josh Berzonski earned Division 1 pitcher of the year honors. Berzonski was a workaholic, logging 60 innings as he compiled a 7-1 record. The southpaw racked up 89 strikeouts against 15 walks, posting a tiny 0.583 ERA.
Berzonski launched the Mustangs into the District 3 5A playoffs, where they upset No. 5 Waynesboro on the back of his two hitters.
Berzonski’s drum mate, junior Ty Cromer, was selected as the Division 1 top receiver.
Gettysburg landed three players on the Division 2 team, including seniors Marshall Mott (pitcher) and Alex Meckley (infield), and second Bryce Rudisill (utility/DH). This trio helped Gettysburg make the D3-5A playoffs.
The Warriors were joined by New Oxford standouts Jesse Bitzer (pitcher) and Mason Weaver (infielder) as stars.
In Division 3, a trio of Bermudian Springs players picked up All-Star honors. Seniors Dalton Reinert and Brock Carpenter were among the infielders chosen while Carter Stuart was given the go-ahead in the utility/DH position.
Littlestown, another area playoff team, saw senior ace Andrew Olvera land one of the pitching spots. The Bolts’ staff will be in good hands for years to come with first-year wide receiver Ryan Jones behind the plate.
Brewer and Orner had company on the Y-4 team with junior outfielder Ben Angstadt.
Delone Catholic (11-9), who reached the Class 2A semifinals, was well represented with four players on the squad. Junior pitcher Jake Sherdel and senior receiver Wyatt Schussler were honored for their respective seasons, as were juniors Avery Kuntz (infielder) and Tyler Hillson (outfielder).
The Squires’ Dave Neumayer was named co-coach of the year with Fritz Allison, who led Hannover to the playoffs with a late push. Allison saw three of her sophomores pass the milestone, including Chase Roberts (pitcher), Justus Feeser (outfielder) and Mason Smith (utility/DH).
Fairfield junior stars Jake Myers and Cody Valentine earned two of four on-court spots on the all-star roster.
