First baseman honored
Valley Falls Dragons first baseman Kyle Glissman was featured as the Athlete of the Week recently on the MSC Sports website. The senior was cited for a .567 batting average with 25 RBIs and two homeruns at that point in the season. Glissman led the team effort against McLouth with a 5-9 day, tallying four doubles and eight RBIs in two contests. Against Doniphan West he went 2-3 with three RBIs.
Dragons head coach Jeff Schneider commented about Glissman’s remarkable season and added, “Kyle’s biggest asset to our team would not only be that he is a great leader but that he leads by example.” The Dragons’ goal is to return to the state tournament, a trip they’ve made four times in the last five seasons.
