LAYTON – Baseball’s Region 1 champion Layton High School can now add a duo of First Team All-State selections to its plethora of accomplishments this season.
Quentin Marcelin and Caleb Harrop, who both played in the 5A All-Star game in Ogden last week, were voted to the 5A All-State baseball team by the coaches of the 5A class.
The results of the voting were made public after the Clipper went to press late last week.
Marcelin and Harrop, who helped the Lancers to a 17-1 Region 1 record and a 23-7 overall record, were just two of five Layton players to make the All-State team.
Brady Jewell and Rusty Wilbert also made the All-State second team, joining Davis High’s Connor Blaisdell and Viewmont High’s Isaac Evans.
Harrop, a senior, helped the Lancers on the mound by pitching to a 9-1 record and a 2.53 ERA. He also hit .332 at the plate with four doubles.
Marcelin, also a senior, led the Lancers with 14 doubles and four triples. He also hit .385 for the season and drove in 19 runs.
Jewell was tied for second on the Lancers team with seven doubles and hit two home runs during the season.
Blaisdell, a senior, was a solid all-around hitter for the Darts this season. He hit a pair of home runs, a pair of triples and three doubles at the plate in helping the Darts make the playoffs.
He was also solid on the mound, pitching to a 7-1 record in his senior season.
Evans, a senior, helped the Vikings reach the 5A playoffs after the team started with 12 straight losses.
Viewmont ultimately finished with eight region wins and made it as far as the second round before bowing out of the playoffs in their third game.
Evans himself had a stellar season for the Vikings both on the mound and at the plate. He hit four doubles and two triples and went 2-1 on the mound.
Layton’s Jayden Berensen made the honorable mention list after finishing with seven wins on the mound.
