Owasso pitchers Nate Wohlgemuth and Nate Ackenhausen were named to the Oklahoma Baseball Coaches Association’s All-State Large East team announced Thursday.
Wohlgemuth, an Arkansas signee, was 2-0 with a 1.62 ERA for the 9-0 Rams before the 2020 season ended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He had 21 strikeouts in 8⅔ innings.
Ackenhausen, an Eastern signee, was 2-0 with a 1.00 ERA. He had 24 strikeouts in 14 innings.
Both also were offensive standouts. Wohlgemuth batted .435 and Ackenhausen .375. Each scored a team-high 12 runs. Ackenhausen was second on the team with 13 RBIs and Wohlgemuth had a team-high 10 hits.
The other pitching slot went to Tahlequah’s Seth Stacey, who was 6-3 with a 0.91 ERA last year.
Bishop Kelley was the only other school with two selections for the Large East — first baseman Cooper McMurray and utilityman Doyle Gehring. McMurray is a Kansas signee, and Gehring is an Air Force signee.
Large East coaches Jim Sherl of Claremore and Steve Irvine of Sapulpa each had their catcher selected — Claremore’s Trevor Janzen and Sapulpa’s Gage Williams.
Berryhill, Metro Christian and Verdigris had two representatives each on the Middle East team. Berryhill’s Brian Hailey was selected as a coach along with Vian’s John Brockman. All World football defensive player of the year finalist Price Allman of Metro was selected as a Middle East infielder.
Oklahoma signee Cade Horton of Norman, announced earlier Thursday as Gatorade’s state player of the year, was selected as the Large West’s utilityman. Horton had career totals of a .420 batting average, 140 hits, 128 runs, 87 RBIs and 34 doubles. This year he was 1-0 as a pitcher and had a .375 batting average in five games.
The OBCA has discussed playing its All-State Games in July if conditions allow.
”Just waiting to make the right decision for everyone,” Tuttle coach Breck Draper said. “We want to try and do something if possible.”
