CARTHAGE, Ill. — A record-setting season earned Wesley Robertson an all-state accolade.

The Illini West sophomore third baseman/pitcher was one of 24 players named to the Illinois High School Baseball Coaches Association Class 2A all-state team and one of just two sophomores to make the list. The IHSBCA names only one all-state team per class.

Robertson helped the Chargers go 28-5 and reach the Class 2A sectional championship game. The 28 victories are the second most in program history.

Robertson hit .481 with a .560 on-base percentage and a 1.272 slugging percentage. He collected 12 doubles and four home runs and set an Illini West single-season record with 50 RBIs. He struck out just seven times in 131 plate appearances.

He also went 4-0 on the mound with a 1.53 ERA and 30 strikeouts in 32 innings pitched.

The right-hander is the third all-state selection in program history, joining Michael Lafferty in 2010 and Nolan Ard in 2015.
