Three summers ago, Dusty Meador and Kyle Hubbuch were teammates on the Wilson County Coyotes -- a 15U travel team coached by Jason Franklin.
Today the pair find themselves on the same roster again, only this time it’s the Tennessee Baseball Coaches Association all-state team.
Meador, a rising senior at Watertown and Hubbuch, a 2014 graduate of Wilson Central, both put up outstanding individual numbers for their respective programs.
Meador, who is rehabbing after reconstructive surgery to his left (throwing) arm, helped lead the Purple Tigers to a record of 18-15 overall and a trip to the Region 4A tournament..
He batted .520 from the leadoff spot (53 hits in 102 at bats) scoring 34 runs and driving in 36. He had 10 doubles, three triples and a pair of homeruns. He stole 12 bases in 13 attempts.
Hubbuch, who has signed with the University of North Alabama, hit .431 in the middle of the Wildcat batting order, collecting 50 hits in 116 at bats. He drove in 43 runs, hit eight homeruns and 14 doubles. He also went 5-5 on the mound in 12 starts, posting 50 strikeouts in 60.3 innings of work and had an ERA of 3.02.
Wilson Central ended the 2014 season 23-13 overall, rolling to the District 9AAA tournament title and earning a trip to the Region 5AAA tournament.
