Jason Hellwig, who helped lead Medina to the Niagara-Orleans League baseball title this spring, has earned honorable mention on the annual All-Western New York squad.

A three year varsity starter who earned first team N-O All-League honors this spring, Hellwig sparked Medina both on the mound and at the plate.

On the mound, he posted an overall record of 8-1 with an earned run average of 2.09. He hurled nine complete games and struck out 94 batters and held opposing hitters with a .207 batting average.

At the plate, he hit .329 with 15 RBI, 15 stolen bases and 26 runs scored.

Hellwig will be attending Pace University this fall where he will be playing football.
