Recent Decatur graduate and Texas signee Bryce Elder added another honor.
The Eagles ace was named the relief pitcher on the 4A Texas Sportswriters Association team.
Elder went 7-2 with a minuscule ERA of 0.603 in 69.2 innings. He threw a pair of no-hitters in the playoffs, while leading the Eagles to their second region finals appearance.
Against teams ranked in the top 10 in 4A – Argyle and Texarkana Pleasant Grove – Elder had three no decisions and allowed only two earned runs in 18-plus innings.
Elder was the Wise County MVP and 9-4A Pitcher of the Year.
Northwest shortstop Tanner Tredaway earned honorable mention on the 5A squad. Tredaway, the 6-5A MVP, batted .474 and drove in 20 runs for the league champions.
Chico’s Cameron Weatherly and Jerod Blanks received honorable mention on the 2A team. The 10-2A Offensive Player of the Year hit .512 with an on-base plus slugging percentage (OPS) of 1.54. Blanks batted .500 with 12 RBIs.
