Five local players on NH All State Baseball teams
The Baseball Coaches Association of New Hampshire recently released its divisional All-State Teams for the 2018 season.
The Division I team is led by Player of the Year Grant Lavigne of Bedford, which is seeded No. 1 as the state playoffs begin today.
Only five area athletes were among the 75 first-team selections in the four divisions.
The future has to be bright considering three sophomores were among the elite quintet: Bishop Guertin’s Brett Anderson (Division I); Daniel Trzepacz of Souhegan (Division I) and Keegan Mills of Campbell (Division III).
Also earning top billing were Milford senior Ricky DeBernardo in Division II and Wilton Lyndeborough senior Jake Lavert in Division IV.
Souhegan High senior Beth Greenwood earned the BCANH scholarship for Division II.
In addition, the coaches have renamed the Division II Coach of the Year Award to the Bill Dod Award, honoring the legendary area coach, who is in the dugout for his 50th and final season this spring at Souhegan.
Here’s a look at the complete first teams for each Division along with the area players on the second and third teams.
