For the second consecutive season, Davenport Assumption's Trenton Wallace is the Mississippi Athletic Conference's player of the year in baseball.
Wallace, an Iowa recruit, is 9-0 on the mound with a 0.34 ERA and 92 strikeouts in 62 innings of work. At the plate, he's batting .411 with 14 extra-base hits and 30 RBIs for the league champion Knights, who open the Class 3A state tournament at 11 a.m. Tuesday against Bondurant-Farrar.
The southpaw is joined on the first team by teammates Ben Beutel (pitcher) and Luke Fennelly (utility). Beutel has a 7-0 mark with 0.73 ERA while Fennelly leads Assumption with a .455 average and league-best 38 RBIs.
North Scott also had three first-team selections in Jared Rus (second base), Adam Sacia (outfield) and Brooks Sunny (utility).
Bettendorf's Carter Bell (pitcher) and Kamrin Arons (first base) made the first team as did Pleasant Valley's Nick Acri (third base) and Josh Stivers (outfield).
There were four teams to have one first-team representative -- Davenport West's Trevor Burkhart (shortstop), Davenport Central's Bobby Magnus (outfield), Davenport North's Caleb Farnsworth (outfield) and Burlington's Nick Hagen (catcher).
Like Wallace, Burkhart and Magnus are repeat first-team selections.
Assumption's Billy Argo, who recently eclipsed 500 wins, was voted as the MAC's coach of the year for the second straight season.
