SPASH’s Wright, Schultz named to Baseball All-State Team
Stevens Point Area Senior High School (SPASH) senior third baseman Cole Wright and junior pitcher JD Schultz were both named to the Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Association (WBCA) All-State Team.
Wright was named Second Team All-State and Schultz was Honorable Mention All-State, after they helped SPASH reach the WIAA Division 1 Sectional Finals this season.
A NCAA Division II Winona State University (Minn.) recruit as a defensive tackle for football, Wright was a force on offense for the Wisconsin Valley Conference (WVC) Champion SPASH baseball team this season.
Wright led the WVC in home runs (three), RBI (20) and doubles (eight) during conference play, and finished second in batting average (.452) and hits (19), and tied for third in runs scored (12). He also only struck out five times to go along with five walks.
Schultz spent time as a starter and a reliever, and went 6-0 and finished second in the WVC with a 1.35 ERA this season. During conference play, he struck out 27, walked 11 and allowed 18 hits in 26 innings pitched.
Sixth-ranked SPASH finished 21-3 this season after a 5-2 loss to fourth-ranked Eau Claire North in the Sectional Finals.
