Playing an independent schedule, La Salle Prep’s Wigwam Sox excelled on offense during the summer, as they hit .357 as a team en route to a 15-8 record.


“Offensively, we’ll do well [next high school season],” said La Salle coach Mike Reed. “How we do [in the win-loss column] will depend on how many runs we give up....

“We still have some work to do on the mound. We walked too many guys and when you walk a lot of guys, you also struggle on defense.... Our pitchers could pitch pretty good. They just walked too many people.”

The Sox had five players hit over .400. Senior-to-be Dane Maben was the top slugger for the summer, with a .500 (36/72) batting average, 34 runs scored, 23 RBI and 18 stolen bases, out of 21 attempts.

Other big sticks were: seniors to be Sam Wade (.431, 22/51, 18 RBI) and Connor Shride (.407, 13/32); and juniors-to-be Drew Conaway (.500, 7/14), Mike Duarte (.462, 12/26, 12 stolen bases) and Jacob Casey (.372, 16/43, 17 RBI).

Senior-to-be Austin Vaughn went 3-0, with a 0.40 ERA, striking out 16, walking 11 and giving up eight hits in 17-2/3 innings. Junior-to-be Ian Basile went 2-3, with a 2.16 ERA, 14 strikeouts, 11 walks allowed and 26 hits in 22-1/3 innings.

“Considering how young we were and our schedule, overall, I’d say the season was a big success,” said Reed. “We had a lot of freshmen and jayvees, and they stepped up and held their own, playing at the next level.”
