Alex Giroux, Jake Dukart, Sam Haney lead Three Rivers League baseball all-stars
The Lake Oswego and Lakeridge baseball teams already made their marks in the 2017 spring season.
Last week, their best players were honored for the roles they played in their team's Three Rivers League seasons. In total, the Lakers had players honored in nine spots and the Pacers three.
Lake Oswego, which went 9-8 in the TRL and tied for fourth place (13-17 overall), saw sophomore Alex Giroux named Pitcher of the Year after he went 3-2 in league, with an 0.832 ERA in 39 2/3 innings, allowing 26 hits and seven walks while striking out 37.
Joining Giroux on the first team were junior shortstop Jake Dukart (.256 batting average with 14 RBIs and 22 runs scored) and junior left fielder Sam Haney (.323 with 18 RBIs and 19 runs scored).
The Lakers also had two players named to the all-TRL second team and four more to the Honorable Mention squad. Second-teamers included Dukart (1-1 in league with one save and a 0.333 ERA in 21 innings, allowing nine hits and two walks while striking out 22) at pitcher and sophomore center fielder Matt Sebolsky (.343 with 12 RBIs and 25 runs scored).
