Lowe, DeJesus are all-state
The Diboll Lumberjacks had a great run through the 2013 baseball playoffs, falling just one win short of a trip to the state tournament.
Two reasons for that success were recognized recently by being named to the Collin Street Bakery/Texas Sports Writer’s Assoc. Class 3A All-State baseball team.
Graduating senior Jay Lowe earned the honor for his play at first base, and senior-to-be Eric Dejesus earned the honor for his play at shortstop.
Lowe will continue his baseball career at Texas College.
Hudson was represented by two players on the third team — senior pitcher Riley Smith and senior third baseman Micah Ellison.
La Grange pitcher/third baseman Logan Vinklarek was the state’s Player of the Year. He went 9-2 with a 1.71 ERA and batted .366 with 32 RBIs, helping La Grange to the state title.
La Grange’s Brad Harbors, who retired after the season, is the Coach of the Year.
