Ten From Texan Baseball Named to All-District Team
June 6, 2022
Ten members of the Wimberley HS baseball team were named to the District 28-4A All-District team for the 2022 season. The Texans finished the season with a 16-12 overall record and were the third-place finisher in District 28-4A. They advanced to the area round of the playoffs, defeating Navarro HS two games to one in the bi-district playoff series, before losing to state-qualifying Sinton HS 13-1 and 9-8 in the area series. The Texans played Sinton tough in the series despite the outcome, scoring the second-most runs against the 34-1 Pirates all year long. On its way to qualifying for the state tournament, Sinton outscored its opponents 84-11, with Wimberley scoring 9 of the 11 runs.
Of its 10 All-District honorees, the Texans had five on the First-Team: pitcher Ruger Riojas, catcher Kyler Lai, second-baseman Lane Patek, left-fielder Josh Prado and center-fielder Dylan Kincaid. First-baseman Ethan Lancaster, third-baseman Will Norris, shortstop Hagen Donley, and right-fielder Chase Carson were named to the Second-Team. Pitcher Landon Gary rounded out the selections as an Honorable Mention pick.
Seven of the honorees were seniors for the Texans and led the team in various categories:
Riojas led the team in triples, strikeouts thrown, and earned run average.
Prado led the team in doubles, runs, and walks.
Kincaid led the team in homeruns.
Lancaster led the team in runs batted in.
Norris led the team in hard-hit balls.
Donley led the team in hits and stolen bases.
The Texan baseball team was led by head coach Stephen Wisdom and assistants Dean Bagby and Michael Houser.
