Hurricane's baseball team failed to reach the state tournament this season, but the Redskins placed the most players on the Class Triple-A all-state team.
Pitcher and shortstop Arik Sikula heads the list of Hurricane
talent. He's joined on the first team by outfielder-pitcher Kyle
Blank. Center fielder Cam Dunlavy made the second team.
Sikula batted .439 with five home runs and 27 stolen bases. On
the mound he was 7-and-1 with 74 strikeouts and a
one-point-three-zero earned-run average.
Joining Sikula as first-team pitchers are Huntington's Patrick
Arnold, Jefferson's Jonathan Hash and John Marshall's Shane Pysh.
Spring Valley's Willie Bays made the first team as a utility
player for the second straight season. Other repeat first teamers
are University infielder Jedd Gyorko (JOR'-koh) and John Marshall
infielder-pitcher Cy Mozingo.
