District 15-5A did not have much of a sample to select last school year’s All-District Baseball Team. All six district team’s had only played one district game, one out of a planned 15, when the UIL suspected all athletic competition on March 16 due to concerns of coronavirus.
The district’s coaches decided to name all of the district senior players on each team to the All-District Team. A total of 12 SSHS Wildcats made the team. They are Jaxon Chaney, Austin Crouse, Jake Davis, Jace Evans, Kolson Hale, Jaden Janway, Reagan Kesting, Brenden Lynn, Alex Medina, Jerrod Ratliff, Will Sims and Aidan Walker.
Wildcats Baseball Coach Jerrod Hammack said this was one of the largest senior classes Sulphur Springs has ever had. He added it was a pleasure to coach these guys and, he said, after such a tremendous start, it was a shame that they were not able to continue.
Led by very strong pitching and some timely hitting, the Wildcats had compiled a season record of 9-3-2 when play was suspended. That included a win by the Wildcats over Royse City in the only district game they were able to play.
