JHS baseball has 6 all-conference selections

Ryan Brost, a unanimous Rock Valley first-team selection, highlighted four Jefferson Eagles who were named to all-conference baseball teams, plus two other Eagles who garnered honorable-mention honors.

Brost was unanimously selected to one of the four outfield positions on the Rock Valley’s first team.

The Jefferson senior posted a .402 batting average, which included a team-high 37 hits. Brost collected 12 doubles and also recorded three triples on the season. He also scored a team-high 28 times and led Jefferson in RBIs with 23.

Junior Jared Vogel joined Brost on the first team as a pitcher. Vogel went 6-3 on the season on the mound and put up a 1.76 ERA for the year.

In the 51 2/3 innings in 2019, Vogel struck out 48 batters.

Brost and Vogel were not alone on the all-conference team, as seniors Sam Cincotta and Hunter Kroseberg both received second-team nods.

Cincotta, who earned a spot on the second-team on the infield, was third on the Eagles with 23 hits. He drove in 15 runs and scored 16 times.

Kroseberg connected on 31 hits on the season for Jefferson out of an outfield position.

He had 18 RBIs and finished with a .408 batting average.

Junior Reese Fetherston and senior Cory Kaiser both received honorable-mention nods.

Fetherston collected 22 hits and scored 20 times on the season. Kaiser recorded 21 hits on the year to go along with a .313 batting average.

Kaiser was effective on the hill, pitching 12 2/3 innings and giving up just three earned runs to make for a 1.66 ERA.

Beloit Turner won the conference with a record of 18-0. Jefferson finished the season 17-9-2 overall and 12-6 in RVC play.
