The 2021 WIAA season has finally come to an end, with all four divisions crowning a state roughly two weeks ago in Appleton. After scavenging through statistics and digging up as much information as we can, we’ve started to designate our All-State team selections.

We heavily based the selection of the all-state team on statistical performance and took into account outside factors like strength of conference and competition, etc., and we landed on the names listed below representing all pockets and divisions from Wisconsin.

Our First Team All-State selections were delegated earlier and you can find that by clicking HERE. Today, we’ll roll out the Second Team All-State, with the third team set to follow shortly. 

CATCHER

Trett Joles C / Boyceville, WI / 2021

Another key contributor to the Bulldogs’ state championship team, Joles captained the ship behind the plate and worked out of the leadoff spot for Boyceville all year. Joles slashed .526/.625/.09 with six home runs, 12 doubles, and 27 RBIs. The Indiana state commit walked (14) essentially twice as much as he struck out (6) and he also swiped 29 bags. Joles was a first team all-conference selection.

INFIELDERS

Brady Marget 1B / Whitefish Bay, WI / 2021

Hitting right in the middle of Whitefish Bay’s lineup, Marget paced the Blue Dukes all season long offensively.

Carson Shepard SS / Sun Prairie, WI / 2021

A staple at the top of Sun Prairie’s lineup, Shepard paced the Cardinals’ offense with a .519 batting average and 40 RBIs. He consistently worked his way on base and was a “spark plug” in a way, scoring 33 runs and swiping 18 bags, too. Shepard is committed to the University of Ohio. 

Rory Fox SS / Catholic Memorial, WI / 2022

Catholic Memorial doesn’t make it to the state playoffs without Fox, who led them all season long and kicked it into a new gear during their deep postseason run. Fox slashed .456/.570/.608 with 10 extra-base hits and 29 RBIs; all while playing a high-level shortstop for CMH. He scored 34 runs, swiped 10 bags, and walked (17) 12 more times than he struck out. The Notre Dame commit anchored Catholic Memorial on the mound as well, striking 71 batters out in 43 innings of work.  

Caleb Guden SS / Medford, WI / 2022

Guden dominated for Medford all season, earning first team all-conference honors and the conference Player of the Year award as well. He broke the school record with 41 hits, put up a .446 batting average, and scored 34 runs. Guden also set the Medford school record with 33 RBIs and he finished the year with 21 extra-base hits, too. His value to the Red Raiders extended to the mound as well, striking 69 batters out in 53 innings, logging two saves in the process. 

OUTFIELDERS

Liam Stumpf OF / RHP / Mineral Point, WI / 2021

A staple for Mineral Point since his freshman year, Stumpf put the finishing touches on a historic prep career with a standout senior season. Stumpf batted .522 with 48 hits, including seven home runs and 18 extra-base hits total. The Missouri State commit brought 47 runs home and scored 57 times, walking 26 times in the process.

PITCHERS

Cole Fialco OF / RHP / Menomonee Falls , WI / 2021

The unquestioned ace of the Menomonee Falls’ pitching staff, Fialco willed the Phoenix to the state playoffs by stringing together two quality performances against rival Wauwatosa East and powerhouse Arrowhead in the regional and sectional finals, respectively.

Meyer also didn’t allow an earned run in Greater Metro Conference play. The Northern Illinois University commit was a first team all-conference selection. 

Bryce Leedle RHP / SS / Markesan , WI / 2021

Markesan will certainly miss their ace next season, as Leedle finished out an impressive high school career for the Hornets with a dominant senior year. He struck 101 batters out over 46 innings, allowing just two earned runs all year (0.36 ERA) and he only gave up 11 hits all season. Leedle also threw two no-hitters in conference play and finished with a 7-0 record. 

Theo Zeidler RHP / SS / Bay Port, WI / 2022

Powering Bay Port in multiple aspects, Zeidler continues to cement himself as one of the top 2022 graduates in the state.

Miller got it done on the mound as well, posting an 11-0 record and 1.00 ERA over 63 innings, including a strong start in the D2 state championship game. Miller was a first team all-conference selection and also earned a share of the conference Player of the Year award. 

Grant Ross SS / RHP / Pewaukee, WI / 2021

Long known as one of the state’s fiercest competitors, Ross finished his senior year with a strong season for Pewaukee. Offensively, Ross posted a .460 batting average with 29 total hits, driving 29 runs in and tallying 11 extra-base hits total. He struck 51 batters out across 22 innings pitched with a 1.91 ERA and 0.95 WHIP, too.
