Holliday lands numerous District 8-3A honors

Blake Lindemann, District 8-3A MVP.  

The Holliday Eagles went undefeated in District 8-3A. They also won a thrilling Bi-district series against Paradise. In the Area round they swept Jim Ned before bowing out to Breckenridge in the Region 1 Quarterfinal round after forcing a third game in the best of three series.

A major factor in Holliday’s success was senior third baseman Blake Lindemann, named District 8-3AMVP. The coaches selections also named Bowie’s senior pitching ace, Payton Price, as Co-MVP. Lindemann hit .394 for the season with an average in district competition of .514.

Junior catcher, Logan Whitling, was named Offensive MVP. He hit a team leading six home runs with a batting average of .405 while accounting for 34 RBIs. Whenever the Eagles needed a big hit or a rally starter it was often Whitling who provided the spark.

Sophomore Eagle, Hadley Harrigal, was tabbed as Pitcher of the Year with a 5-0 district record with a 2.85 ERA. Connor Cox was named Defensive MVP.

First year Head Coach Brad Blassingame and his staff including Ryan Menasco and Kevin Brown was selected Coaching Staff of the Year for District 8-3A.
