The DeWitt and Portland St. Patrick baseball teams made the deepest state tournament runs of all mid-Michigan schools.
And both lead the way with two players recognized on the Michigan High School Baseball Coaches Association all-state teams.
DeWitt had a pair named first team all-state in Division 2 in senior infielder Donovan Tarn and junior outfielder Michael Stygles. Senior pitcher Travis Moyer was named first team all-state in Division 4 and junior catcher Brendan Schrauben earned second team honors for St. Patrick.
Portland St. Patrick coach Bryan Scheurer also was named the Division 4 coach of the year after guiding the Shamrocks to a school-record 34 victories and a state runner-up finish.
Tarn, Stygles, Moyer and Schrauben were among nine mid-Michigan players to earn all-state honors.
Grand Ledge senior infielder Brendan Baker was named second team in Division 1. Lakewood senior outfielder Dylan Kemp joined Tarn and Stygles on the first team in Division 2, while Haslett senior outfielder Hunter Ruhstorfer was named to the second team.
Fowler sophomore pitcher Dane Armbrustmacher and Potterville junior infielder Zach Yarger joined Moyer as Division 4 first team all-state players.
