Poll: YAIAA boys' Athlete of the Week | April 6-11

No hitters have been in abundance at the outset of the high school baseball season.

First it was Kennard-Dale’s Ryan Vipperman, who fired one in a 9-2 win over New Oxford - Vipperman struck out 10 while walking 11 in the complete-game effort.

Last week, however, the trend continued.

Dallastown’s Avery Strayer kept it going in a 15-0, five-inning win for the Wildcats over Dover. Strayer struck out five while walking just one.

Then Beau Burris pulled the feat in Central York’s 11-0 win over Kennard-Dale. Burris recorded double-digit strikeouts - 11 total - in the contest.

Although it wasn’t of the no-hit variety, Spring Grove’s Anthony Reed tossed a gem nonetheless last week as well. Reed went the distance in a 2-0 win over New Oxford, surrendering just three hits while striking out nine and walking none.

New Oxford’s Alex Smith wasn’t going to be outdone, either, firing a one-hitter in the Colonials' 10-0 victory over Hanover. Smith threw all five innings of the shortened game, giving up one hit while striking out nine.

And at Eastern York, Colby Shimmel earned a complete-game victory while striking out 11 in an 11-1 win over Hanover.
