Six SHS athletes given area baseball recognition

Six Sweetwater High School athletes — three seniors and three juniors — earned All-Big Country baseball recognition Sunday from the Abilene Reporter-News.
Senior first baseman Greg Aiken was named to the starting infield after a season in which he hit .443 with 12 doubles, three triples and 34 RBIs in 77 at-bats, along with a .990 fielding percentage. Aiken, a four-year starter, was also named District 4-3A MVP.
Senior Stephen May was named to the team as a backup outfielder. He hit .375 with six doubles, one triple and 14 RBIs in 88 at-bats. Also named to the All-BC team was junior pitcher J.P. Poe, who made the “bullpen.” But with Sweetwater, Poe was a starter and had a 1.15 ERA and 54 strikeouts and a 7-3 record with 60.2 innings of work. Earning All-BC honorable mention were senior James Clift as both a pitcher and infielder; junior Hayden Reeves as both a pitcher and catcher; junior Tyler Beasley, chosen as an infielder; and also Poe as an infielder. Beasley — who was District 4-3A’s newcomer of the year — was Sweetwater’s starting third baseman this season, while Poe was primarily a second baseman when he was not on the mound. Clift also played second base this season when he was not being used as a pitcher.
