WYANDOTTE — For the second straight year, Wyandotte will be represented in the Oklahoma Coaches Association all-state baseball game.
Jordon Burney was selected as an infielder on the Small East squad.
Braxton Douthit, now at NJCAA Division II-bound Northern Oklahoma-Enid, represented the Bears last year.
Burney, who has signed with Westminster College of Fulton, Missouri, was the most valuable middle infielder in the Lucky 7 Conference.
He hit .488 while collecting 40 hits in 82 at bats. He had 33 RBIs and scored 30 times.
Burney had 10 doubles, five triples and two home runs. He’s struck out just seven times in 82 total plate appearances.
As a pitcher, he was 7-4 in 11 starts. Burney had a 3.52 earned run average over 53.2 innings and has struck out 71 and walked 15.
Ketchum pitcher Noah Edwards, the MVP of the Lucky 7, also was named to the Small East team.
Three players from state championship teams were selected — first baseman Trevor Bailey of 2A champ Silo and infielder Josh Lewis and outfielder Conner Priest of A champ Roff.
“He deserves it, no question,” Wyandotte coach Kendall Young said. “It’s hard to do on our side. All the small schools on our side are Silo, Dale, Red Oak, Calera — all the good ones. It’s a lot easier to make it on the west.”
The all-state games will be Tuesday, July 24 at J.L. Johnson Stadium on the campus of Oral Roberts University.
The Bears’ Ryan Cooper made the 2A all-star by class team.
