“Keeslars hitting keys team success”
“As Rainier High School baseballs regular season winds down, senior Kya Keeslars production continues to rise, as he has been named Nisqually Valley News Athlete of the Month for April…
Keeslar combines on the field performance with a quiet leadership.
‘That (vocal leadership) is not him at all,’ Rainier coach Mark Mounts said. ‘Hes just not that type of guy. If I can get four words from him in a game Im happy.’
Keeslars consistent statistics speak louder than words.
‘Hes a polished hitter and has good recognition of plate coverage,’ Mounts said. ‘I would say in three years of coaching him hes never gone two games in a row without a hit,'” quoting the Nisqually Valley News (NVN).
Ed. Note: This writer has known Kya and his family since before he was born.
I can attest this is an outstanding young man!
AND, KUDOS TO NVN PUBLISHER/EDITOR KEVEN GRAVES FOR ACKNOWLEDGING THIS 3RD GENERATION MEMBER OF A FAMILY THAT HAS CONTRIBUTED MIGHTILY TO THIS AREA FOR TWO DECADES!
