Austin Pedersen and Dylan Seacat will represent the 15-year-old Cottonwood Valley League All-Stars at a state all-star game Saturday and Sunday in Ottawa.
The two Marion players were selected because the CVL team defeated Lyons twice to win the District Four tournament in Lyons.
They are two of six players selected from District Four, which stretches from Great Bend to Buhler. Pedersen and Seacat are two of 36 players chosen from the state.
“Dylan was a natural,” Cal Ripken Commissioner David Branson said, “maybe the best shortstop in the state.”
“Austin had a terrific district tournament,” Branson added. “If it hadn’t been for him Lyons would have won.”
