“It was a great season and it’s great for our kids to be recognized,” Whiteford coach Terry Pant said. “They were very deserving.”

Tammerine, a freshman, hit .390 with five homeruns and 33 RBIs. He also scored 31 times.

“He’s a very impressive player,” Blissfield coach Larry Tuttle said. “He handles himself very well at third and swings a good bat.”

Giesige his .287 with 33 hits. On the mound, he went 7-2 with a 2.12 ERA and 96 strikeouts in just 59.1 innings.
