Wisconsin Sports Network is proud to showcase the WSN Senior Baseball Awards.
The pre-season watch list has been trimmed down to five finalists. Winners are announced the week of the spring baseball state tournament.
WSN Senior Baseball Awards -- Pitcher Finalists:
Brendon Bille, Waupun -- Bille is a three-year varsity standout for the Warriors with more than 20 career victories on the mound. This season he is 7-0 with a 0.45 ERA and 6 strikeouts, as opponents are batting just .124 against him.
Jack Brown, Eau Claire Memorial -- Brown has been the ace of the staff the last couple seasons for the Old Abes. After earning eight wins as a junior, he's been a key part of the team's success this season as well, receiving Pitcher of the Year honors in the Big Rivers. He tossed a no-hitter two weeks ago against Menomonie in a 1-0 victory.
Blake Thiesse, G-E-T -- Thiesse helped the Redhawks to a share of the Coulee Conference title this season. A returning First Team All-Conference choice, he has an 8-1 record with 0.64 ERA and 79 strikeouts in 10 starts this season.
Trevor Tietz, Watertown -- Tietz stepped up in a big way as a senior, becoming one of the dominant pitchers in the state. The Badger-South Player of the Year has an 8-1 record with 0.74 ERA and 96 strikeouts.
