With a perfect 12-0 Pheasant Conference record, leading to a conference championship, it’s only fitting that Ashby Head Baseball Coach Jared Larson and senior Jaden Norby of the Arrows were selected as Coach of the Year and Most Valuable Player in the Pheasant Conference. Hancock senior Preston Rohloff received Pitcher of the Year honors and senior Nate Moberg of Border West was named Offensive Player of the Year.
Border West recorded a 5-2 victory over the Hancock Owls in their Section 6A baseball playoff game on Tuesday. The Buccaneers added a single run in the sixth and held on for a 5-2 win, eliminating the Owls from the tournament.
The Hancock Owls scored a pair of first inning runs on Friday when they hosted Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa in their final regular season baseball game. BBE got single runs in the third and sixth to tie the game at 2-2 and the Jaguars then scored 3 runs in the top of the eleventh to clinch the victory.
