Webster's Jack Washburn pitches against Athens in the Division 4 state semifinals on June 12 in Grand Chute.
Webster senior Jack Washburn has been selected as the 2019 Wisconsin Baseball Central Pitcher of the Year.
Washburn capped his high school career in style, earning the win in the Division 4 state championship game over Mineral Point. It was the exclamation point on a season in which he went 12-0 with a dazzling 0.22 ERA. Hitters stood little chance when he was on the mound, striking out 123 times. The Oregon State commit was part of five no-hitters this spring. This was the second year in a row he was a finalist for this award.
During his career, Washburn won two state championships and went to state three times with Webster.
Washburn joins Arrowhead's Ryan Schmitt (2016), Kenosha Indian Trail's Ryan Hoerter (2017) and Tomah's Connor Prielipp (2018) as winners of the award.
