JEFFERSONVILLE – New Albany incoming senior Ryan Robison and several Southern Indiana players have been selected to the Indiana High School Baseball Coaches Association All-State teams.
Robison was one of two first basemen throughout the Hoosier State to be named to the Class 4A All-State squad. He is the fifth player in New Albany history to be selected to the All-State team. Robison helped the Bulldogs post a 17-10 record last season.
Jeffersonville’s Jack Ellis and Bedford North Lawrence’s Drew Hensley earned spots on the Class 4A All-State honorable-mention list.
Providence, which advanced to the Class 2A Plainfield Semistate last season, got one player on the Class 2A All-State team. That player was standout shortstop Timmy Borden, who has given a verbal commitment to play at the University of Louisville.
Fellow Pioneers Jake Lewis and Reece Davis were 2A honorable-mention selections. Lewis, who was Providence’s ace pitcher the past few seasons, will continue his baseball career next season at Eastern Kentucky University.
Austin’s Tanner Craig joined both Providence players on the 2A honorable-mention list.
Lanesville pitcher Cameron Harvey made the Class A All-State team. The right-hander was the winning pitcher in the Eagles’ 5-1 victory over Rossville in the Class A state championship game June 17 at Victory Field in Indianapolis. It was Lanesville’s first state title in any sport.
Borden’s Lucas McNew got picked to the Class A honorable-mention list along with Trinity Lutheran’s Jake Moore and Kendall White.
