Each week, WIAA coaches around the state submit to us their nominations for the PBR Wisconsin Player of the Week honor. On Wednesday, we awarded the sixth POTW of the year, representing Week 7, to OF/LHP Logan Dunn (Wautoma, 2023), who exploded for 11 hits, which included two doubles, a pair of triples and two home runs, finishing the week with six RBIs. Dunn also earned a win on the mound for Wautoma and struck out 14. 

Inside of this Diamond Notes piece, we acknowledge the performances that fell short of that POTW honor, but are still deserving of some recognition here.
