Sun Prairie senior catcher Zach Fairchild has been named to the Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Association All-District 5 team, which was released earlier this week.

Fairchild was an All-District honorable mention selection last year. A Bradley University recruit, he is a four-year starter for the defending state champion Cardinals who will meet Stevens Point in the Division 1 title game Wednesday night.

Edgerton senior infielder Evan Deegan and Potosi senior outfielder Tim Fritz are returning all-district first-team selections. Barneveld junior catcher Carson Carmody is a second-team pick after earning first-team honors last year.

River Valley senior infielder Carter Hoffman earned first-team honors after being named to the second team a year ago. Madison West senior outfielder Alex Brown, the Big Eight Conference Player of the Year, earned first-team recognition after receiving honorable mention honors as a junior.

The District 3 teams included players from the Northern and Southern Badger, Big Eight, Northern and Southern Capitol, Northern Rock Valley, Six Rivers, Southern Wisconsin Activities League, and Southwest Wisconsin Conferences.

Congratulations Zach! As a plate umpire in one of your games this year (can't say which one) I was impressed with your poise, class and ability. Good luck in this evening's championship game and in all your future endeavors.
