Montrose High School center fielder Emmert Kastendieck came away with a state honor for his work on the diamond last week.
The MHS baseball player earned an All-State honorable mention nod for his work this past season.
Kastendieck, who previously named to the Southwestern League first team last month, led the SWL in stolen bases with 16. He also finished tied for first in runs scored (28).
Kastendieck additionally finished third on the team in on-base plus slugging percentage (.936), fourth in hits (25) and tied for fifth in RBIs (15).
Interestingly, Montrose’s Dustin Boone, the Southwestern League Player of the Year, was left off the All-State team. He had a batting average of .500 which led the SWL. He also ranked first league-wide in on-base percentage (.559), hits (41), doubles (11) and home runs (four).
MHS baseball coach Landon Wareham previously praised Kastendieck, Boone and his four other players selected to the All-SWL teams, saying each one deserved the honor.
