Hawk hardballers earn accolades

W-G senior Race Brant beat out this infield single to tie the school record for career hits at 123. He finished with 135 hits.

GRANGER — Three Woodward-Granger baseball players earned all-conference honors and two were selected for the all-district teams recently.

Senior outfielder Race Brant was named to the All-WCC First Team, with sophomore first baseman Cole Theisen and eighth grade pitcher Brandon Worley both selected for Honorable Mention recognition.

Brant hit .385 and had a .500 on-base percentage while scoring 20 runs and driving in 10 in WCC action. He had a double, two triples and two home runs among his 20 hits in conference play.

Theisen batted .357 with a .481 OBP. He had 14 RBIs and scored 17 times, with four doubles and a home run part of his 15 hits.

Worley had an impressive debut as a short reliever. He threw 15 innings in WCC play, finishing 3-0 with one save. He allowed eight hits and was touched only for one unearned run. Worley walked two batters and hit one while striking out 12 and allowing the opposition to hit just .143.

Brant, who was an INA Third Team All-State pick last year, repeated as an All-District First Team choice. His overall numbers included 36 hits and 31 runs with 14 RBIs from his lead-off spot in the lineup. He had four doubles, three triples and three home runs while batting .434 with a .530 OBP and was safe on 21-of-24 stolen base attempts. Brant is the W-G school record holder for career hits (135), runs (105) and steals (83).

Junior second baseman Marcus McConahay had the rare distinction of being named to the All-District Second Team after not being chosen for All-WCC honors. He hit .341 with a .432 OBP. McConahay had a double and a triple among his 28 hits while scoring 24 runs and driving in 16. He was safe on all 18 of his stolen base attempts.

W-G finished 15-12 overall and were third in the conference with a 12-6 WCC mark.
