Four area athletes excelled and recently completed their season for the Mocksville-Davie American Legions.

Matt Martir-Tullock of Traphill, and a recent graduate of Elkin High school, caught in 26 of the 28 games which earned him the nickname, the Ironman. Martir-Tullock threw out numerous attempted base steals, and was also a fixture in the fifth spot in the batting order and had a knack for reaching base safely. Martir-Tullock will continue his baseball career at Surry Community College in the fall.

Jaime Sheek and Tyler Campbell, both 2017 graduates of Forbush High, started in the field and at the plate. Sheek was a slick fielding shortstop and lead off hitter, where he capped a fine season with four hits in the final game.

Campbell was a number three batter in the lineup and lead the team with four home runs. Campbell played a solid first base position and was an occasional relief pitcher.

Sheek and Campbell will continue their baseball careers in the fall at Catawba Valley Community College.
