(5-21-18) SSN named its 2018 All Mercer County Baseball Team.

2018 is a season that Ft. Recovery fans will remember for a very long time. The Indians picked up their first ever MAC boys basketball championship and sharing it with neighbor St. Henry.

Named Co-MVPs are the Indians’ Nick Thwaits (Sr) and Cade Wendel (Sr), the main forces behind the MAC title run. Both will continue to pitch at the next level, Thwaits at D I Kent State and Wendel headed to D II Lake Erie College.

The two gave Ft. Recovery one of the top pitching staffs in the Stateline area, plus both had outstanding careers at the plate.

Co-Champion St. Henry places five players on the team, Rylee Deitsch, Jay Knapke, Daylon Lange, Ryan Luttmer and Parker Link.
