Bobcats’ Rebik makes all-conference second team
The Marshalltown baseball team ended its season on a 19-game losing streak and with a 6-31 overall record. It was a year to forget, but for four Bobcats it was a good enough season to earn honors from the CIML Iowa Conference.
On the second team, sophomore catcher/outfielder/pitcher Nick Rebik made his first appearance. Rebik had a very strong conference season at the plate, hitting .500 in 46 at-bats. He scored 22 runs and drove in seven while batting leadoff, walking nine times and striking out just three times.
Three Bobcats earned honorable mentions — freshman Tyne Weeden and seniors Carson Johnson and Jacob VanPelt.
Weeden played all over the diamond on defense, serving as a catcher, third baseman and outfielder. Weeden hit .289 in CIML play and drove in 10 runs.
Johnson was a pitcher and third baseman, pitching in five conference games and starting two. He went 0-2 with a 4.59 ERA in 10 2/3 innings. At the plate he hit .231 in conference play. Van Pelt had seven appearances as a pitcher and three starts, going 0-3.
At the plate, VanPelt had a .171 batting average and drove in five runs, scoring five runs as well.
Both Rebik and Weeden were honorable mention all-conference selections a summer ago.
