After a season that resulted in a co-district championship and bi-district playoff victory, the Farmersville baseball team was well-represented in the all-district awards.
The Farmers (9-3, 17-16) had two superlative winners at the District 13-4A awards voting, led by the District Pitcher of the Year Cooper Strawn. He was the ace on the mound, leading the team in wins and strikeouts while helping the Farmers have a district-best 3.17 ERA.
He was also paired with Jason Gomez, the Farmers’ top hitter who won the District 13-4A Offensive Player of the Year. Gomez led the team in hits and batting average for the season, as he was also selected to play in the THSBCA All-Star game in Round Rock on June 18.
Farmersville also had three first-team all-district players and four second-team players this season. Pitchers Caden Norman and Collin Berry helped man the rotation with Strawn and were named to the first team. They were also joined by starting catcher, Brady Gray, who came up with multiple clutch hits for the Farmers on their district championship run.
Logan Dale, Aiden Marquez, Mason Erwin and Luke Wilson made the second-team all-district for the Farmers, while Aidan Gray was an honorable mention. The team will return six of its ten all-district players next season, as Gomez, Marquez, Wilson and Aidan Gray were the only seniors on the team.
Along with the on-the-field accolades, the Farmers got it done in the classroom as well. Gomez, Marquez, Hudson Gray, Jaron Johnson, Jordan Herring and Aiden Marquez were named to the academic all-state team. Gomez made the elite team among that group.
