Chippewa Hills’ Snyder earns all-CSAA Gold honors

Nate Snyder

REMUS — Chippewa Hills had a young baseball team this season, but the Warriors still had plenty of talented players who were able to get the job done.

This includes Nate Snyder, a junior infielder, who earned first-team honors for the Central State Activities Association Gold Division this year. He was also first-team all-district.

Snyder had 95 putouts, five errors, a .954 fielding percentage plus 12 doubles, 17 RBIs, 17 runs scored and a .427 batting average.

“Nate batted third for my team all year and was our most consistent player,” Warrior coach Ben Wright said. “He is a second-year letterwinner and looks to make even bigger strides going into his senior season. He is well deserving and a great young man.”

Snyder played third and pitches but also saw action at first base. He pitched in Saturday’s tournament.

“I batted in the 400s last year,” he said. “I’ve been hitting pretty good this year.”

Earlier in the season, with the Warriors battling for wins, Snyder talked about the team’s slow start.”

“We have to keep our heads up and make every play possible,” he said. “We’re young but have some talent on the team. We’re still trying to put people into positions.”

Ian Bissell earned CSAA honorable mention honors for the Warriors.

The Warriors ended the season at 6-17.
