North Tama senior Jacob Wrage has received all-district baseball honors for the fourth year in a row, highlighting this summer's collection of 17 area preps to be named as such by the Iowa High School Baseball Coaches Association.

Wrage was twice an all-district second-team selection before receiving first-team honors his junior and senior campaigns. He helped the Redhawks achieve a 27-11 record as the leadoff hitter, batting .441 with team-highs of 56 hits, 47 runs, 16 doubles, two triples and 40 RBIs.

He went 5-5 as a starting pitcher and played either catcher or first base defensively when he wasn't on the mound.

North Tama senior Jacob Wrage pitches against BGM during their Class 1A district baseball final on July 20 in Brooklyn. Wrage, who took the loss, received all-district distinction for the fourth year in a row, rounding out a career that included 16 pitching victories.

Wrage was one of seven first-team all-Central District selections from the area in Class 1A, and one of nine first-team picks from the Marshalltown region overall. He was joined on the 1A Central District first team by teammate Dalton Hulme for the second year in a row, along with Isaac Novak and Tyler Lutes of BCLUW, Bryce Moats and Ryon Appel of Grundy Center, and AGWSR's Cody Williams.

Novak was a second-team selection a year ago for the Comets.

Six members of the 17-player 1A Central District second team were from the area as well: Brody Hulme, Brent Billerbeck and Caden Stuart of North Tama; Trevor Trunck and Joe Zimmerman of Gladbrook-Reinbeck; and Brandyn Niemeyer from Colo-NESCO.

West Marshall's Jared Riemenschneider received all-district honors for the third time in as many years, repeating as a first-team pick with his selection to the Class 2A Central District squad. He was joined on the unit by teammate Nolan Sinning, who received his first all-district honor.
