7 Spartans Named to Deseret News All-State Teams


Emery junior Ridge Nielson was named the 2A baseball MVP by the Deseret News last week. In total, seven Spartans saw themselves on 2A All State teams.

Gavin McDermott and Dillon Wilstead joined Nielson on the first team. Junior Tyson Roper was named to the second team. Braden Burke, Marco Mota and Drexler Tanner garnered honorable mention honors.

Emery capped off the season with a second-straight 2A title May 13, beating Grand twice in the final two games to win from the loser’s bracket.


Aside from Mr. Baseball and MVP’s from each classification, All-State teams are selected by coaches.
