Grover nails another honor

Owen Grover, of Beckman, was distinguished as a first-team selection on the Iowa High School Baseball Coaches Association’s Academic All-State Baseball list.

The first team consists of the top 23 players, nominated by their coaches, who demonstrate outstanding academic, moral and athletic characteristics. The next 24 players receive a second-team all-academic certificate.

All first-team members were honored at the All-Star Banquet Aug. 10 in Carroll.
