Fuquay-Varina’s Garrett Suggs was named Tri-9 baseball player of the year, as voted on by league coaches.
The center fielder, pitcher and leadoff batter set new school records in runs scored in a season and career.
Suggs, who will play baseball at N.C. State next year, has been a six-time all-conference selection – three in baseball, three in football.
Fuquay had four selections in all – Suggs, Brett Daniels, D.J. Burt and Lucas Scott – plus its coach Milton Senter was voted as the league’s coach of the year.
Green Hope had the most selections of any team with five. Luca Scelsi, Eric Gilbert and Jonathan Newbold were second-team selections while Thomas Yoder and Daniel Weygandt were on the first team.
Holly Springs pitcher/first basemen Andy Wantz and Brian Fortier made the first team while infielder Mike Sconzo was on the second team.
Lee County’s Chase Arrington made his fourth Tri-9 all-conference team (twice in football, twice in baseball).
While Suggs was the only three-time all-conference selection in baseball, Yoder, Weygandt, Sholar, Scelsi and Arrington were all returning from last year’s first or second teams.
