Fairland’s Yancey Lett was named the most valuable player of the Lucky 7 Conference.
“Yancey has definitely been an asset to our team,” Fairland coach Jerry Johnson said. “He has come into several clutch situations this year and more often than not has come out on top.”
Lett hit .488 and won 7 of his 10 decisions for the Owls, who came within two wins of the Class 2A state baseball tournament.
“We always felt confident that if he was on the mound, he was going to throw strikes,” Johnson said. “He has also been a very dependable hitter these last couple of years and driven in a lot of runs for us.”
Lett collected 41 hits in 84 at-bats, including 10 double and seven home runs. He had a .857 slugging percentage and a .609 on-base percentage.
Lett drove in 42 runs and scored 42 times. He stole 14 bases.
On the mound, he went 7-3 with a 1.90 earned run average. Lett struck out 65 and walked 27.
Opposing batters had only 47 hits off Lett, including three home runs. Two of those were by Oktaha in the winners’ bracket final at the Class 2A regional last weekend in Ketchum.
