McPherson Baseball Trio – Athlete Spotlight Presented By Advanced Physical Therapy

By Matt Browning

The trio of Jaret Myers, Hunter Alvord and Dawson Feil make up a core for McPherson baseball that cannot be matched by many in the state.

Not just because they are talented players, but all three play the two most important positions in baseball: pitcher and catcher.

All three were first team all-league players last season: Alvord at pitcher and shortstop, Myers at pitcher and Feil at catcher.

Myers and Alvord combined to go 14-1 with a 0.99 ERA. Feil, who pitched occasionally, recorded no errors behind the plate, while also hitting .360 with 34 RBIs.

“I am pumped for my senior year and believe this will be a special season and a special team,” Myers said. “Our goal as a team is to get back to the state tournament and make another run, but a successful season isn’t defined as wins and losses. Playing for the guys in our dugout, practicing and playing every game like it is our last, and competing and improving individually and as a team throughout the season.”

Alvord said since the moment the Bullpups won their title last season, they have been focused on going back-to-back.

“As a team I think winning another state championship has been on our mind since we won last season,” Alvord said.

Just being back on the field with his teammates has Feil yearning for the season to start.

“I am looking forward to getting back on the field with my baseball boys and grinding it out and getting better every day,” Feil said.
