Posted on June 21, 2014 at 3:47 p.m.

If there was a Triple Crown for high school hitters in The Elkhart Truth area, Penn senior Colin McNamara would have come very close during the 2014 baseball season.

Based on statistics provided by coaches from schools covered by the The Elkhart Truth, McNamara led in batting average at .521 and home runs at six and was second in runs batted in with 40. He also paced the area with four triples.

Concord senior Nick DeFreese hit .500 with several other players over .400.

With five each, Concord junior Brenden Curry and Elkhart Christian senior Tanner Watson were tied for second in the area among home runs leaders.

Fairfield senior Tony Zook led the area with 44 RBI.

Hitting the most doubles was NorthWood senior Will Kirkwood with 16, followed by Zook with 12.

Penn senior Cole Harlacher scored an area-pacing 41 runs. Penn senior C.J. Banashak and Fairfield senior Forrest Glogouski tallied 39 runs each.

The area stolen base king was Concord senior Duncan Boone with 21. Elkhart Christian senior Kenny Bearss and Northridge junior Payton Carson were close behind with 20 swipes apiece.

On the pitching side of things, Penn senior Jake Thoma and Elkhart Memorial senior Jake Tucker tied for the lead in victories with nine each. Fairfield junior Andrew Bobeck won eight games.

Three area pitchers — DeFreese, Harlacher and Elkhart Christian junior Drew Overmyer — tied for three most saves with three apiece.

Tucker's 1.15 earned run average was the lowest based on a minimum of 33 innings pitched. Westview freshman Houston Haney was second at 1.21.

Jimtown junior Nick Floyd racked up an area-leading 78 strikeouts, followed by Curry with 69 and DeFreese with 68.
