Jim Franz/Beloit Daily News Tyler Statler of HHS fanned 89 batters.

ROCKTON - Several Hononegah Indians and a current member of the St. Louis Cardinals organization were recently honored by the NIC-10 conference's baseball coaches.

The Indians, who finished 17-1 on the season, placed four players on the NIC-10 First Team and another earned Special Mention.

To no one's surprise, Tyler Statler earned league MVP honors after going 5-2 with a 1.33 ERA on the mound and hitting .281 with three home runs at the plate.

Statler, a 13th-round selection of the Cardinals in the recent MLB Player Draft, struck out 89 batters in 52 2-3 innings for the Indians.

Statler, still just 17 years old, departs for the Cardinals' rookie-league team in Jupiter, Fla., on Tuesday.

Joining Statler on the First Team were freshman outfielder Bryce Goodwine, junior pitcher/infielder Payton Mather and sophomore outfielder Braden Sayles.

Senior pitcher Will Hissong earned Special Mention, while Matt Simpson earned Coach of the Year.

Goodwine finished his first season with a .359 average and a team-best 12 stolen bases.

Mather was a terrific dual threat, hitting .373 with a team-best 31 RBI's, and going 7-3 with a 1.70 ERA on the mound.

Sayles hit a team-best .413 with 11 doubles, three triples and a home run. He stole eight bases and drove in 19 runs, finishing with a .529 on-base percentage.

Hissong went 7-0 with a 1.92 ERA, striking out 45 batters in 47 1-3 innings.
