Sanderson’s Connor Baldy and Daniel Dulaney helped lead the Spartans to the Cap Eight title this season.

Baldy, a Pfeiffer recruit, hit .465 to earn Conference Player of the Year honors. Dulaney, a UNC-Greensboro recruit, was named Pitcher of the Year after going 8-1 from the mound with a 0.72 ERA.

Leesville Road’s Ryan Sande was named Newcomer of the Year.

Sanderson’s late-season surge helped the Spartans surpass Millbrook for the conference championship, but Millbrook made a deep playoff run to a three-game regional finals series.

The teams’ coaches, Sanderson’s Todd Laughlin and Millbrook’s Austin James, shared Cap Eight Coach of the Year honors.
