The accolades are rolling in for the Kingwood High School baseball team. The Mustangs won the 2017 District 21-6A championship with a league mark of 12-2 on their way to an area round playoff run and a final record of 26-6.
Eight players from that team were named to the 21-6A All-District team. Seven of those were selected to the first team.
Freshman Masyn Winn was an unanimous selection as the district’s Newcomer of the Year. He was also unanimously chosen as a first team all-district pitcher as well. Winn was a big reason for Kingwood’s success this season, winning nine of its first 10 games, then 11 of its next 12 and 16 of 18 heading into the area round of the playoffs, where they were defeated in the best-of-three series by Clear Springs.
The 5’-9,” 155-pounder was clocked at 86 mph on his fastball at the 2017 Perfect Game East MLK Championship in January at the 5-Plex -Player Development Complex in Fort Myers, Fla.
In addition, Kingwood pitcher Cody Lancaster also earned a spot on the 21-6A All-District First Team. The junior turned in an outstanding season, culminating in a complete-game shutout of Pasadena Dobie to finish off a sweep of that bi-district playoff series.
Also garnering first-team all-district recognition were junior catcher Austin Flematti, senior first baseman Alec Gilman, freshman shortstop Tre Richardson, senior outfielder Evan Loyka and sophomore outfielder Carter Amarantos, who was also an unanimous selection.
Junior outfielder Ben Cegelski was named to the all-district second team.
Further recognition went to both Flematti and Gilman, who have been selected to play in the 2017 Houston Area Baseball Coaches Association (HABCA) All-Star Games, June 20 at the University of Houston.
