Baseball 2017 Review

The baseball team registered an 18-10-1 record and repeated as sectional champions, despite graduating 10 seniors from last year’s state championship squad. The Rebels defeated Perry Meridian (6-0) and Southport (5-1) to win the program’s 13th sectional title. Prior to this season, the last time the Rebels won consecutive sectional titles was in 1998 and 1999. The Rebels defeated Avon (6-2) in the regional semifinal before falling 5-2 to Cathedral, the eventual undefeated state champion, in the regional final. The Rebels also advanced to the final of the Marion County Tournament.

Sophomore outfielder Tommy Hansen entered the national high school record books on April 7. In a game played in Louisville against Metamora Township from Illinois, Hansen became the first player in national high school history to hit a grand slam in three straight plate appearances. He finished the game 3-for-3 and drove in all 12 runs in a 12-1 Roncalli victory.

Junior outfielder/pitcher Nick Schnell was named Marion County player of the year and earned a spot on the American Family Insurance All-USA Indy-area baseball Super Team. He was also selected to the inaugural All-Circle City Conference team. Hansen and junior infielders Hayden Harper and Harrison Koppenhofer joined Schnell on the all-conference team. Harper and Hansen were also picked for the all-county squad.
