Hesston’s Gunnar Lewis-Baseball Spotlight-Presented by Oliver’s Sports

Gunnar Lewis of Hesston was a first team all-league shortstop last season, and came back ready for more for his senior season. While the season started out shaky, Lewis and the team were able to get back on their feet.

“We started out a little rough around the edges but as the season went on we got a lot better and learned a lot from the previous losses,” Lewis said. “We got hot and went from four and two to 17 and four in the regular season. We finished 20 and five and had the best season we’ve had in our program’s short life.”

Lewis had team goals and personal goals he was willing to accomplish this season, and was proud of the hard work put in to making the goals come true.

“Personally my goal was to make first or second team All-State, which I accomplished,” Lewis said. “As a team we expected a state championship but got a tough draw in the first round.”

With a long season to make endless memories, Lewis has quite a few he’ll look back on after high school.

“My favorite memories were making it back to state and going three and zero against Haven this year where in one of the games I hit a first pitch home run to start the game,” Lewis said. Lewis has aspirations to continue playing baseball at the next level, but is currently uncommitted.
