Thursday, June 29, 2006

Another deep postseason run for Class 1 baseball power Oran netted the Eagles three players on the recently released Missouri High School Baseball Coaches Association all-state team.

Oran junior Chase Seyer, sophomore Caleb Seyer and senior Austin Dumey each garnered all-state honors. All three players are receiving all-state honors for the second time this month, as the three players also made the Missouri Sportswriters and Sportscasters all-state team as well.

The Oran trio helped the Eagles return to the state final four this past season, the fourth trip in five years for Oran. Oran finished third.

Chase Seyer was a second-team pitcher selection following a 7-1 season in which Seyer finished with a 1.96 ERA in 50 innings. Seyer also had 32 RBIs and six home runs to go along with a .329 batting average.

Caleb Seyer made honorable mention at catcher following a stellar hitting season. Caleb Seyer scored 56 runs out of the leadoff spot and slugged five home runs to go with a .438 batting average.

Dumey, named honorable mention as a utility player, was one of the Eagles' top pitchers throughout the season. Offensively, Dumey hit .405 with 45 RBIs and 33 runs scored.

Kelly senior Caleb Daughhetee was the only other area selection, a second-team infielder pick in Class 2. Daughhetee hit .455 for the Hawks this season, with 21 RBIs, 12 doubles and three home runs. The Hawks fell to Valle Catholic in the championship of Class 2 District 2.

In the final coaches poll Oran was ranked third, while Class 1 quarterfinalist Saxony Lutheran ranked eighth.
