Sinclair has once again received the most All-Conference selections after winning their 4th straight OCCAC Title. The following players were named to the OCCAC All-Conference Team:

Austin Downing 2B Middletown, Ohio .360BA 27H 16RBI’s

Joe Ford SS Grove City, Ohio .333BA .427OB% 1.000FLD%

Corey Johnson RHP Tipp City, Ohio 5-0 1.25 ERA

Jon Thacker RHP Bellbrook, Ohio 5-0 1.86 ERA

Drew Williams OF Pickerington, Ohio .440BA .660SLG% 15RBI’s

“All five of these players are very deserving of being on the All-Conference team,” said Dintaman. “The entire team put together one of the most impressive runs ever in the conference, winning twenty-one games.”

Corey Johnson also picked up the Pitcher of the Year Award and Coach Steve Dintaman picked up his 5th straight Coach of the Year Award.

“Our conference ERA for the year was in the low 2’s and Corey was a big part of that. In the six starts that he made, every one of them was a quality performance. His season was highlighted when he throw a no-hitter at Lakeland in early April.”

“Coaches never win awards by themselves and there is no way that this program can run without the help of our assistants. I feel very blessed to be able to coach with such great group of coaches that I consider personal friends. From our top assistant to the manager, they make this program work. Special thanks to Tom Bell, Rick Castle, Dylin Fowler, Trace Fowler, Mike Parr, Brendan Loiacono, Jamey MeWhinney, Joel Eilerman and Taylor Hargrove.”
