Polar Bears’ Kesling comes up big in tournament


Times West Virginian

FAIRMONT — Fairmont Senior High School’s Johnny Kesling had a weekend to remember for the Polar Bears in the Class AA state tournament.

During the semifinal and state championship games, Kesling had crucial at-bats that resulted in multiple RBI opportunities. In both games, Kesling racked up three hits and two RBIs.

Although he had a productive weekend on the offensive side of the ball, he also played first base with passion. Kesling made scoop after scoop at first base against Bridgeport in the state semifinals. Because of his defense, he kept the Polar Bears from contributing multiple errors.

For his efforts, Kesling is the latest Times West Virginian Multi-Media Good Sports Player of the Week.
