CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Good things come in threes.

Point Pleasant landed three players on the West Virginia Sports Writers’ Association Class AA all-state baseball teams for the 2018 campaign — as voted on by a select panel of media members throughout the Mountain State.

Senior Tucker Mayes, as well as juniors Miles Williams and Carter Smith, all earned all-state selections for the first time in their respective baseball careers.

Both Mayes and Williams were named special honorable mention, while Smith was selected as an honorable mention choice.

Williams — a catcher and utility player — hit .408 and scored a team-best 28 runs while producing 31 hits, two homers and 17 RBIs.

Mayes — a utility player — hit .375 and had a team-high five homers while knocking in 27 RBIs and scoring 22 runs.

Smith — an infielder — had a team-best .494 average and scored 25 runs while producing 38 hits and 18 RBIs.

Bridgeport senior Brayden Lesher — a pitcher — was named the first team captain, while Nitro senior Mike Stone — a utility selection — was chosen as the second team captain.
