FOR RELEASE - Tuesday, July 31, 2012, 12:01 A.M.

Iowa Newspaper Association All-State Baseball Teams chosen DES MOINES - The Iowa Newspaper Association announced its 2012 All-State Baseball selections Tuesday, selecting first, second, third teams and team captains for classes 1A, 2A, 3A, and 4A. The four seniors selected as team captains are 4A – Zach Coppola, Dowling Catholic; 3A – Tyler Peyton, Dallas CenterGrimes; 2A – Calvin Mathews, Davis County; and 1A – Austin Vaske, Bishop Garrigan. Dowling Catholic senior Zach Coppola was named the Class 4-A captain. The outfielder led his team in almost every major statistical category including batting average (.421), hits (53), runs (35), triples (2), and stolen bases (19) entering the state tournament. Coppola manned the outfield when the Maroons won the Class 4-A title in 2011. A mainstay in the Maroons lineup, Coppola has been clocked in the 90s from the outfield. He’ll play next season at South Dakota State. Tyler Peyton has been named the captain of the Class 3A All-State Baseball Team. He has used both his pitching and hitting skills to lead the top ranked team in Class 3A into the state tournament. The Dallas Center-Grimes senior entered the tourney with a pitching mark of 9-0 and he was hitting at a .469 clip. As a pitcher he had 111 strikeouts in 62 innings of work with an ERA of 0.56. The .469 batting average was tops on the team and his 35 RBI were second base on the squad. The Mustangs were 33-2 when they arrived in Des Moines for state play. Calvin Mathews, who was named captain of the 2A team, is a five-year letter winner for the Davis County Mustangs and has led the team to its third straight appearance in the Iowa State Tournament. Mathews was named the Iowa Gatorade Player of the Year in the 2011 season. In 2012, Mathews led the Mustangs to an undefeated 20-0 record in South Central Conference and a 41-1 record in the regular season. Mathews headed up the Mustang pitching staff with a 12-0 regular season record in 80-1/3 innings of work. He struck out 165 batters, walked four, and had an earned run average of 0.70. He was also an offensive threat with a batting average of .475. He had 58 hits, 11 home runs and 59 RBIs this season. Mathews will attend the University of Iowa this fall where he plans to further his baseball career with the Hawkeyes. Class 1A captain Austin Vaske compiled a stellar senior season for Bishop Garrigan, leading the Golden Bears to the state tournament for the first time since 1999. On the hill, the tall right-hander is 11-1 with three saves in 15 appearances. He has struck out 116 batters in 83 innings and has an ERA of 1.09. At the plate, Austin is currently batting .479 with 70 hits in 146 at bats, including 15 doubles, two triples and a state-leading 13 home runs. The Iowa Central recruit has scored 55 runs; drove in 62 more, walked 21 times and has a slugging percentage this summer of .877.
