Kamp, Anderson lead strong Kerens contention on 19-1A all-district baseball team

Corsicana — It was a banner year for Kerens baseball, and the District 19-1A all-district team provided one final push for the Bobcats.

Senior DJ Kamp is going out with the district’s Defensive Player of the Year award, and junior Brett Anderson was named Offensive Player of the Year. For good measure, coach Jayson Engel was named Coach of the Year.

The Bobcats (19-7) spent some of the year ranked in the Top 10, and won the school’s first baseball playoff series in 32 years.

Kamp made only one error all season anchoring the Bobcats’ defense at second base. Offensively, he hit .412 and had a .537 on-base percentage.

Anderson, meanwhile, struck out only once all year. He hit .603 with 32 RBIs and 12 extra basehits. He was also 6-2 on the mound with a 1.58 ERA, 77 strikeouts and held opponents to a .168 batting average.

The Bobcats had nine other players dot the all-district team’s landscape.

Senior Michael Kline was a first-team pitcher, and senior Dylan Woods was named first-team utility. A pair of sophomores made first-team, with Zach Duncan an infield choice, and Jeremy Gould an outfield pick.

Junior Justin Jock landed on the second-team as a pitcher, along with infielder Ian Salas and outfielder Kevin Towensel, both seniors. Junior Shelton Sayles was the second-team utility player.

Freshman Tanner Davis was an honorable mention choice.
