Hanowski, a senior on the baseball team, was 12-for-22 with four home runs and 15 RBIs during May at the time of the selection, raising his batting average to .528. He went 3-for-4 with a double, RBI and two runs as the Flyers clinched the Granite Ridge Conference championship against St. Cloud Cathedral, May 19. Hendrickson, a junior on the girls track and field team, earned All-Granite Ridge Conference honors in the 3,200-meter run and honorable mention honors running first on the 4x800 relay team. “Mattia has been a consistent point earner for the team all season long,” head coach Tara Schlagel said. “She has placed high in the 1,600 meter, 3,200 meter and the 4x800 relay in every meet she’s participated in. Mattia was selected as a captain because of her hard work, positive attitude and dedication to the sport.”
