Ten freshman received freshman awards for their contributions to the program during their first year of high school. They were: Matt Antle, Alex Selby, Jared Coffey, Jeron Hammond, Jeremy Morgan, Taylor Hutchison, Martin Cross, Justin Roy, Cody Overby and Garrett Withers.

Junior Varsity awards went to Jordan Best for Most RBI’s and Highest Batting Average (.500). Brett Huddleston for the defensive award and Dillon Downey for most wins.
