Rewarded for their outstanding 2017 seasons, two local players have been named to the District 14 Coaches First Team All-District squad, North Adams junior Bryant Lung in Division III and Manchester senior Colton Thornburg in Division IV.
Lung spent most of his season either behind the plate or 60 feet, 6 inches away from the dish, splitting time at pitcher and catcher for the Green Devils. He hit .422 and was 2-1 on the mound.
Thornburg handled the catching duties for the Greyhounds and had a memorable senior campaign, hitting .468 to lead the county while driving home 25 runs, averaging more than an RBI per game.

After pounding the ball at a .468 this spring, Manchester senior Colton Thornburg was rewarded with a spot on the District 14 Coaches All-District First Team.

Three more Adams County players earned All-District recognition, with Manchester’s Bryan Young (.391, 12 extra-base hits) being named to the Second Team in Division IV, while North Adams’ Elijah Young (.367) earned Second Team honors in Division III. Also in Division III, West Union senior Janson Kramer (.351) was named Honorable Mention All-District.
“Bryant and Elijah led us in most offensive categories and both had solid seasons,” said North Adams head coach Rob Meade of his two All-District honorees. “Bryant hit leadoff and had 30 hits on the season, 13 of which were for extra bases. Elijah played great on the defensive side as well. He ended the season trying to play through a knee injury that happened while diving for a ball. He had a solid offseason where he worked on his approach at the plate and hit third in our lineup most of the season.”
Also representing the Southern Hills Athletic Conference on the Coaches All-District teams were: Kevin Schmid-Eastern Brown (First Team, Div. III), Josh Wolfe-Lynchburg (Second Team, Div. III), Bricen Hess-Lynchburg (Second Team, Div. III), Traeten Hamilton-Whiteoak (First Team, Div. IV), Trever Yeager-Whiteoak (Second Team, Div. IV), and Caleb West-Whiteoak (Second Team, Div. IV).
