ROCKPORT—Though Rockport failed to repeat as American Legion baseball sectional champion, Tell City senior Trent Gunn can’t be blamed.
Gunn hit .500 (9 for 18) for Rockport in its four sectional games.
That raised his season batting average to a team-best .429.
In 20 games he hit four home runs and nine doubles and drove in 24 runs despite batting leadoff most of the time.
Fellow Tell Citians Trent Benningfield and Shane Weedman hit .343 and .328 for Rockport.
Weedman went 3-1 as a pitcher and Benningfield was 4-3.
