Each week, WIAA coaches around the state submit to us their nominations for the Prep Baseball Wisconsin Player of the Week and Prep Baseball Wisconsin Pitcher of the Week honors. Yesterday, we awarded the Week 4 Player of the Week honor to SS/RHP Mason Roell (2024) and the Pitcher of the Week honor to RHP/UTL Carter Kutz (Hartford Union, 2025; Nebraska). Roell this past week, going 9-for-14 at the plate with three doubles, and two home runs. He finished with 15 RBIs and helped West Bend East to a solid 3-1 week, taking down some competitive opponents in the process. Kutz has been a huge piece for undefeated Hartford Union, who just moved up our Power 25 rankings again, up to No. 9..
