The Lakelands Baseball Club honored four players with Player of the Week awards Sunday afternoon at Grace Community Church in the organization’s monthly meeting.

Dixie pitcher Chandler Thompson earned Player of the Week honors, due in large part to his performance on March 4th against Crescent, when he spun a perfect game, striking out 14 batters. Offensively, Thompson was 3-5 during the week, with one double.

Emerald’s Bradley Dixon was recognized for his offensive outburst. During the week he was selected, Dixon hit a scorching .727, going 8-11 with one home run, five runs scored, two doubles, two triples, and two stolen bases.

McCormick’s Trey Houston was awarded for his all-around stellar play, tossing a complete game no-hitter, while leading the Chiefs offensively, hitting .666 with one home run, one triple, two RBI, and three stolen bases in a week of play.

The fourth player honored came via Brady Smith, who turned in a sensational performance in two starts during the week he was chosen. In two starts, the Ware Shoals Hornet junior allowed just four hits, one earned run, and tallied ten strikeouts versus Saluda.

Lakelands Baseball Club President Mark Davis explained that the foursome’s performance during this past month helps illustrate the overall talent throughout the area.

“I think it shows the overall depth of baseball talent in our area,” Davis said. “From 1A to 4A, there are a lot of very good players in the Lakelands. A lot of these kids play showcase and travel ball over the summer, and as you can tell from the numbers they have put up, they have definitely translated that play into school ball.”

The next Lakelands Baseball Meeting will be held on Sunday, April 28th, at Tranquil United Methodist Church.
