CARROLL – Two local players made an impact in the All-Star Series Championship Game on Sunday, in the final high school baseball contest of the season. 


Collin Kramer, on the mound for the Saints, was named Top of Iowa Conference player of the year. 

Saint Ansgar pitcher Collin Kramer earned the win for the Small East team in a 3-2 win over Large West.

On the hitting side, Newman Catholic's Evan Paulus hit a two-run home run for the Small East team, giving the team a mid-inning lead. The Small East team scored a solo run in the fifth to extend the lead to 3-1.
