Shawn Jones was named to the 4A’s all-state first team and Gonzalo Pinchardo was a second-team selection. Jones played centerfielder for the 5-16 Braves this year, batting .439 with 25 hits and 15 runs batted in.
Pinchardo, who was Bonner Springs’ starting catcher, batted .408 with 20 hits and 18 runs batted in. As all-state selections, the two received invites to the 2012 Kansas Association of Baseball Coaches All-Star game on Wednesday at Kansas State University’s Tointon Stadium.
