Notes: First-team All-MAPL selection.
Quotes: Mercersburg coach Karl Reisner said, "He was our Mr. Clutch. He led the team in RBIs, was tremendous at third base and he was our closer. We counted on him and John Olszewski for leadership. They were our only two seniors coming back with real experience. He gave us that and he really matured as a leader and a player."
ASHTIN BYERS, So., DH, Greencastle-Antrim
Statistics: .406 (26-64), 22 RBIs, 1 HR, 4 3B, 3 2B, 16 runs, 5 SB, .444 OBP
Notes: Mid Penn Colonial Division first team
Quotes: G-A coach Eric Shaner said, "Ashtin is just a wrecking ball in the middle of the order. He drove in over 20 runs as a sophomore and hit over .400. We lost some big bats from the middle of last year's team and he helped make up for that. He had some huge RBIs for us in huge spots ... just a great run producer in the No. 4 hole. We expect big things from him."

Quotes: Mercersburg coach Karl Reisner said, "He's just an incredibly talented player. He's a five-tool kid. He made maybe one error this year and gets to balls other kids wouldn't. He's a tremendous defensive player. And he did a great job in the two hole.
HUNTER SZAFLARSKI, Jr., SS, Greencastle-Antrim
Statistics: .367 (22-60), 10 RBIs, 1 HR, 1 3B, 1 2B, 23 runs, 6 SB, .493 OBP
Notes: Mid Penn Colonial Division first team Last year, Szaflarski batted just .204.
Quotes: "Hunter was somebody we challenged, because we really needed a leadoff hitter," Blue Devil coach Eric Shaner said. "And he was second in on-base percentage in the top five in batting. He was hesitant last year, but he challenged himself in the offseason in Legion and the Keystone Games and he changed."
LOGAN STONESIFER, Jr., LF, Chambersburg
Statistics: .381 (24-63), 17 RBIs, 1 3B, 2 2B, 16-for-17 in SB, 12 runs, .487 OBP

JEREMY MUSSER, Sr., CF, Shippensburg

Notes: Mid Penn Colonial Division first team ... He will play next year at Millersville.
Quotes: Shippensburg coach Dan Watkins said, "If you get a player with an on-base percentage like that, that's huge. And with his speed he made things happen. Having him in centerfield was like having two outfielders out there. He'll be missed very much next year."

Statistics: .324 (22-68), 4 RBIs, 3 3B, 3 2B, 29-for-32 in SB, 22 runs, .446 OBP
Notes: Mid Penn Commonwealth Division first team
Quotes: "His strength was his base-running," Chambersburg coach Bob Thomas said. "He had the third-most steals in school history. He definitely played better in the second half of the season than in the first, which is one reason why we started winning. In his last eight games, I believe he hit something like .596, so he really came around."
TANNER PROPST, Sr., P/SS, Cumb. Valley Christian
Statistics: Batted .500 with 22 hits, 20 runs, 12 RBIs, 7 doubles and 2 triples ... 2.73 ERA, 96 strikeouts, 21 walks and 55 hits in 64 innings pitched.
Notes: First team All-MDCC selection.
Quotes: CVC coach Keith Propst said, "He meant a lot to us this year. He was a leader. He challenged the other boys to hit as well as him this year and they stepped their game up, too. Being a captain, he played into that role on and off the field real well. He's meant a lot to the team the last few years, but this year he really stepped it up."

Notes: Mid Penn Colonial Division first team Warrenfeltz broke a school record with 7 triples.
Quotes: Indians coach Greg Chandler said, "We had to make a tough call, but we moved him to second base six games in and he played unbelieveable there, so it paid dividends for us. He had a great year. He did a lot of good for us both on offense and on defense."
JESSE SWOPE, Jr., P/2B, McConnellsburg
Statistics: Batted .436 with a .506 OBP, 34 hits, 18 RBIs, 26 runs, 7 doubles, 1 triple and 10 walks.
Notes: First team Sideling Hill League and ICC selection.
Quotes: McConnellsburg coach Tim Fowler said, "He's just a tough kid. He never says a word. He lets his game speak for him. He really squared the ball up this year and hit the ball well. He's just downright a tough kid and I'm looking forward to having him back again next year. He's old school. If I had nine kids like him, we'd be in pretty good shape."
TRISTAN DOUGLAS, So., 3B, Southern Fulton
Statistics: Batted .500 with a .634 OBP, 25 hits, 23 runs, 11 RBIs, 4 doubles, 3 home runs, 15 walks, 5 strikeouts and 17 steals.
Notes: First team Sideling Hill League and ICC selection.
Quotes: Southern Fulton coach Dustin Fischer said, "Whenever he was up to bat, if the game was on the line, that's who we'd want up at the plate. If he didn't get a hit, he walked. A lot of teams pitched around him and he's very selective. He knows where the strike zone is. Hitting-wise, he's good and he's young."
