Kenneth Moore, a 2019 graduate, along with seniors-to-be Peyton Roberts and Drake Henderson were selected by Region 7-4A coaches to the All-Region Team. Henderson earned the additional honor of being named to the Class 4A All-State Second Team.
Moore, who will continue his career and education at Holmes Community College beginning this fall, led the Wildcats at the plate during his senior season with 35 hits and 25 RBIs. He was second on the squad with a .368 batting average and 24 runs scored, and was tied for the team lead in home runs (with two) and tied for first for doubles (with seven). Moore played shortstop and third base for Coach Nick Chatham’s team and also provided 26.1 innings of work on the mound, finishing the year with a 1.2 record and 3.7 ERA.
As a junior middle infielder, Roberts served as the Cats’ leadoff hitter throughout the year and led the team with 110 at-bats. He finished the 2019 campaign with a .300 batting average and was the team leader with 25 runs scored and tied for first with seven doubles and nine stolen bases.
Henderson had an excellent season on the mound for GCHS and is garnering a lot of attention from collegiate scouts. He led the Wildcats with 73.2 innings pitched and posted a strong 1.33 ERA along the way. He finished his junior season with 102 strikeouts, compared to 31 free bases (21 walks and 10 hit batters).
