MVP Split Between Three For 2019

Issue Date: June 20, 2019

The 2019 All-Conference voting has been released for the M&O and it seems there is a three way tie amongst the top. This year not one or two but three MVP's earned the honor of the season's best. they were Crivitz's Jaden Werner for his Infield play, Wausaukee's Andrew Schroeder for his mound performance this season and Landen Kaldor who also earned it for his play on the infield of the Badgers.

Wausaukee posted the second largest group of guys to the list, getting three the Rangers certainly were represented for a great season on the area diamonds.

This year the Rangers added Andrew Schroeder to the Tri-MVP list. Schroeder put up some good number sthis year ending the season with a .583 batting average.

"Andrew has always been good for us," said Wausaukee head coach Jon Betts," but this season he really stepped up. We knew the MVP voting was going to be tough because there were so many deserving players this year, but Andy did just about everything he needed to earn it. Over the past year from late season Schroeder really improved his control on the mound. He has always thrown hard but I saw him really reign in that power this year, he kept himself out of trouble all season long pitching for us."

Joining Schroeder on the list was Kyle Struve.

For Struve in his 2019 season he was able to post a .333 batting average.

"Kyle was absolutely solid at the plate for us this season, said Betts. " as out lead off hitter he just about always got the ball in play for us and gave our guys something to work with. He made smart baserunning decisions all season long and was very strong in the field for us. Not much got by him. His versatility will be missed next year. We put him at short stop this season for the first time and he did an amazing job. He also was a pitcher for us, doing very well there too. He's going to be tough to replace."

Tyler Gruszynski also earned a spot on the first team list this season as he posted a .313 batting average.

"Tyler has been one our best assets in the outfield, said Betts. "The kid can run down just about anything. And at the plate he improved so much from his junior year, he really made the difference out there."

Coach Jon Betts took time to speak on behalf of his team.

"I was overall very happy with the voting. It was so nice to see a pitcher, outfielder and infielder all get honored on the list from our team. But this team was a great group of kids. It was nice having a mix of sophomores, juniors and seniors out there as well. But this group never had any drama amongst them and just played the game. They stayed level headed throughout the season and just showed that they were there to play ball."

The Coleman Cougars, though not represented in the MVP voting were well represented amongst the first team list this season with the selection of four of thier stellar ball players.

Heading up the list of Cougars was a tough senior by the name of Mason Risner.

"Mason was our only senior this year," said Coleman head Coach Kent Casper. " Was outrCaptain and I just can't say enough about how great of a leader he was on the field. We moved him to shortstop which he has never played before, and he did everything we asked of him and more. One of the best leaders I have ever coached. You never like to see a guy like this leave. He really has been this teams leader. What made him so outstanding during the season was how versatile he was, whereever we needed him to be he would do everything he needed to do for the team."

Brandon Engels joined Risner on the list.

"Brandon is just an outstanding player and did a great job for us out there this season,: said Casper. In my opinion he is the best outfielder in the conference. We put him in right field this season, which is where he has been since a freshman and his experience there showed. The guy can cover alot of ground out there which is important. You can't do well as a team without a solid outfield. Especially right field because of the way the ball comes off the bat into the field. It can be tricky but Engels was always on point. He has some great speed which also worked well for him on the bases where he was very dangerous, he stole 15 bases this season as well as getting a .390 batting average.

Now any team that played the Cougars this season knows that one of the main reasons they were so tough was because of what was coming off the mound and this year's ace, Seth Seefeldt surely didn't disappoint.

"Seth was one of the best pitchers this season, said Casper. "He was the only undefeated pitcher and really faced some tough competition out there. Especially when compared to some of the best this season like Werner from Crivitz and Hansen from Niagara. But he always did his job out there.

Hunter Woulf rounded off the list of first teamers for the Cougars.

"Hunter was just fantastic behind the plate for us this season," said Casper. He handled the pitching staff very well while also blocking anything that wanted to get past him. His Hitting was also very important this year. He was our number three hitter and did a great job bringing in runs for us. This guy did everything we asked of him."

Coach Casper went on to say a little about his team as a whole, "I'm very proud of this season's team, We had alot of expectations going into the season being that we had some spots to fill from last year, we lost six from las tyears squad. The guys were young and we had some injuries. But the boys stepped up and met the challenge. I couldn't be more proud of the way they played this year."

The Crivitz Wolverines were represented this year by two of thier best, Jaden Werner, Tri-MVP and Dawson Andrist.

Jaden was also first team all-district and honorable mention all-state as an infielder to add to his Conference POY accolades.

On the year Werner was tough at the plate getting a .471 batting average. he hit in 33 RBIs had two home runs and scored 27 times.

On the mound Werner played 10 games in which he allowed 35 hits and struck out 104 hitters

"Kids like Jaden don't come around too often, said Crivitz head coach Jeff Dorschner. "He's a guy that has invested a lot of time and effort into baseball and his play speaks for itself. He led our team in nearly every offensive category and was our staff ace. We had a chance to win every time he took the mound. He was a guy that his teammates looked up to and is just an exciting player to watch. He has really grown over the last three years and his love of the game is what I enjoy most about him."

Dawson Andrist also gave his Wolverines something to cheer about with a second spot for the guys in yello and gold for the season.

At the plate Andrist eneded the season with a .342 batting average and gave his team31 runs scored. he also swatted in nine RBIs as well as using his quickness to steal 13 bases.

"Dawson had to move to the leadoff spot this year and really did a nice job of setting the tone for our offense. He has great baserunning instincts and really has become one of the better defensive outfielders in the area. He started off offensively a little slow, but picked things up by mid season and had a nice year for us."

Dorschner made note of what makes these guys truley amazing,its not just thier baeball play but thier other sports efforts as well.

"The thing I like about both kids is that they were 1st Team All-Conference performers in football, basketball, and baseball. They are guys that really embrace the spirit of competition. We tied a program record for wins in a season and with only losing one senior off this year's roster, hopefully our returning experience combined with some solid numbers coming in next spring will give us a chance to be pretty competitive."

Also making the list for this years first team selctions were Niagara's Landen Kaldro and Josh Weber who were part of a post season push that saw them get two games away from going to the state tournemant.
