Mabel-Canton senior Drew Wyffels, for the third straight season, has received Honorable Mention on the Post Bulletin All-Area Baseball Team.

Wyffels was previously named All-Section, honored as a four-time All-Conference selection and a three-time Cougar Most Valuable Player and three-time Mabel-Canton Male Athlete of the Year.

He is one of only a few Class A players to earn All-Area acclaim. On the first and second teams were five Class AAAA selections and 12 Class AA players, including Player of the Year Hayden Brown of Rochester Lourdes and a pair of Caledonia neighbors — Casey Storlie and Tate Meiners.

The three Class A honorees (first and second teams) were Riley Gora of Schaeffer Academy, Carter Bratland of Spring Grove and Easton Fritcher of Hayfield.

Other neighbors receiving Honorable Mention were Spring Grove's Alex Folz and Chandler Bergrud plus Caledonia seniors Eric Augedahl and Payton Schott.
