BLOG: Christian School of York players picked all-stars

Steve Heiser

Three players from Christian School of York have earned berths on the 2016 Commonwealth Christian Athletic Conference Baseball All-Star Team.

The teams were selected by the conference coaches.


CSY earned the CCAC championship this season and finished with an overall record of 10-3. The Crusaders also qualified for the District 3-A playoffs for a second straight season. That constituted quite a turnaround from 2014, when CSY finished 1-9. The Crusaders were 8-9 in 2015.

The CSY players honored were:

►Junior shortstop/pitcher Ben Bills, who led the CCAC with a .651 average, to go along with 21 RBIs. He was also a standout pitcher, picking up four wins and compiling a conference-best 1.29 ERA, while striking out 45 in 32 2/3 innings pitched.

►Senior catcher Matt Taylor, who finished with a .486 average and drove in a conference-best 23 runs.

Bills and Torreullas have committed to play at NCAA Division II Nyack College in New York, with Taylor moving on to Lancaster Bible College.
