Steamboat baseball puts 3 on All-League team

On the baseball field, seniors Lars Johnson and Alex Wood were named to first team All-Western Slope League, and sophomore Alan Capistron was named honorable mention.

Johnson hit .474 and didn't make an error all year roaming center field.

Wood was one of the most dominant pitchers in the league. Although he had an 0-1 record, his 2.38 ERA was one of the best in the league. He also hit .393 and tied for the team lead in home runs with two.

Capistron was one of the most improved players in the league. After hitting just .230 last year, Capistron hit .422 this year. He led the team with 19 hits and tied Wood with two home runs.

"I hate to see Lars and Alex go," Steamboat manager Dave Roy said. "They'll leave a big hole in the pitching staff. But with guys like Alan coming along, we'll fill that gap pretty quickly."
