He was the Daily Sun’s Golden Circle Most Valuable Player of the Year for 2013.

He was the District 19-1A Offensive Player of the Year after batting .603 with 12 extra base hits. He drove in 32 runs.

Frost pitcher Jacob Stroder was named to the 1A all-state third team and five other Golden Circle players made the honorable mention list, including four from Dawson.

Stroder was a Golden Circle first-team player and the District 14-1A Player of the Year. He went 5-2 with a 1.80 ERA and had 80 strikeouts in just 37 innings.

Dawson’s Trent Underwood, a junior pitcher, catcher Mark Martinez, a senior, Jarod Grat, a sophomore shortstop, and Louis Lachney, a senior third baseman, were all named to the honorable mention list. Kerens’ D.J. Kamp, a junior second baseman who was the Golden Circle Defensive Player of the Year, also made the honorable mention list.

  • GC Basketball/Baseball: Mildred's Connor Hill sees life clearly

    There was never any doubt for Connor Hill, never any question about what he would do or how he would do it.
    Sure, there was that meeting with his mother and father and talks with the doctor when he was 10, talks and meetings that came accompanied with worry and concern.
    But never from Connor.
    He just never dwelled on the fact he played sports with one eye. He didn't worry or talk about it when he was 10 and he never talked about it at Mildred High, where Hill emerged as a star on the basketball court and baseball diamond.

    Minutes after Navarro split a doubleheader with Paris on Wednesday, Navarro softball Coach Jessica Karenke was told her Bulldogs had just been nationally ranked and are now No. 16 in the NJCAA national softball poll.
    She had no idea.
    And she didn't care.
    Karenke is worried about what happens on the diamond, and she had some concerns after Navarro made four errors in the second game that opened the door for Paris to pull off a 7-2 win after the Bulldogs and Ciara Luna controlled the first game with a 4-1 win.
