Dover’s Hutchins tops All-State baseball team

Dover High’s Jordan Hutchins was named the state Player of the Year while a total of six Henlopen Conference players made the first team on this All-State baseball squad.

The team was chosen by the Delaware Baseball Coaches Association on Thursday.


Senior Jordan Hutchins played both shortstop and pitcher for Dover this spring.

Hutchins, a senior who played both shortstop and pitched for the Senators, made first team at the utility position. He’s headed for the University of Delaware after helping Dover to an 18-3 record and its fourth straight berth in the DIAA state semifinals.

Hutchins was joined by Senators’ teammate Garrett Lawson, a senior who was a first-team All-State selection at both pitcher and designated hitter.

Other downstaters named to the first team were Lake Forest first baseman Tyler Collins, Polytech second baseman Carter Chasanov, Smyrna third baseman Hared Gillis and Cape Henlopen outfielder Austin Elliott.

St. Mark’s Matt Smith was named the state Coach of the Year after leading the Spartans to the state championship.
