Three baseball players named to All-State teams

Three Federal Way baseball players were named to the Washington State Baseball Coaches Association “All-State” teams, with Scott Sunitsch from Todd Beamer and Decatur’s Jake Kolterman and Taylor Havlicek getting the nods to the prestigious teams.

Sunitsch was named to the 4A 2nd Team. The Beamer senior finished his high school career strong, posting a 2.20 ERA, striking out 53 batters across 41 innings of work during 2014. Sunitsch, a first-team SPSL selection and SPSL All-Star and State All-Star game participant, was also incredibly strong on the offensive side of the ball.

For 2014, Sunitsch posted a .643 slugging percentage, while knocking in 23 runs and posting a .315 overall average. The former Titan is heading to Washington State University next year, where he’ll be part of the Cougs rising baseball program.

Kolterman had a strong season for the Gators defensively and offensively. As a pitcher, Kolterman posted a 4-2 record with four complete games and one shutout, all while maintaining a 1.74 ERA. Kolterman was second in 3A SPSL baseball with 68 total strikeouts over the season. The senior showed his skill on offense, posting a .410 batting average with four home runs and 31 RBI.

His fellow Gator, Havlicek, had a strong season in his roles as catcher, infielder and pitcher. Offensively, Havlicek had a .360 batting average, with a .455 OBP with 15 RBI and 21 runs scored.
