Monticello ball players shine at All-Star game

Two Monticello High School baseball players represented their team very well at the 2024 2A All-Star Game in Kanab on Saturday, May 18.
Freshman Triston Felix was the starting pitcher for the 2A team and went two innings without allowing a run. He also struck out three of the batters he faced.
Buckaroo sophomore Jackson Keyes had a great day at the plate, blasting an RBI double off the wall. He played solid defense at first base for the 2A All-Stars as well.
Keyes led Monticello’s offensive attack this season. He was a very impressive 20-for-48 at the plate for a .417 batting average. He hit three home runs, five doubles, and drove in nine runs.
Triston Felix batted .393 with one homer, five doubles, and a team-high 19 RBIs. But some of his best work for the Bucks came on the mound.
His 5.22 earned run average led the team easily. He faced the second-most batters in Utah this season, 286, and struck out an astounding 108 of them, also second-most in the state and 144th in the entire nation. He allowed just 43 earned runs in 57.2 innings of work.
