Three area baseball players named all-state
East Ridge's Luke Ringhofer and New Life Academy's Sam Horner and John Horner were named All-State this week by the Minnesota High School Baseball Coaches Association.
Ringhofer, a senior, was named to the 3A All-State team after he led the Raptors to the 4A sectional final this season. Ringhofer will play baseball for the Jackrabbits of South Dakota State starting in the fall.
John Horner, a senior, and his younger brother Sam Horner, a junior, were both named to the 1A All-State team. The two Horners represented a large chunk of the Eagles pitching rotation this season, as the two accounted for all 22 innings pitched during New Life's state tournament run, which ended in the program's first state championship Monday. Both John and Sam were also dynamic players at the plate, as well.
