Connor Hurst, OF, 2015
Michael Albright, OF, 2015
Ben Madison, C, 2015

Mason Hiser.
The Barton County CC commit dialed in a 5-2 record with a miniscule 1.06 ERA and 64 strikeouts in 46 innings for the Orioles earning KABC 4A-I All-State and AVCTL-IV honors at season’s end.

2015 OUTLOOK:  
Augusta looks to take a step forward in 2015 with the return of seven everyday starters and three pitchers with significant innings from last spring. Leading the way will be a strong senior class that includes KABC 4A-I All-State right-hander Mason Hise; speedy centerfielder Connor Hurst who also earned KABC 4A-I First Team All-State honors after hitting .423 with, 19 runs scored, eight triples and 14 stolen bases last spring; all-League outfielder Michael Albright; as well as catcher Ben Madison and utility player Dustyn McEachern.
