The Broken Bow American Legion baseball program handed out awards Monday night celebrating the success of the past season.  The Bow seniors and juniors teams each qualified for the state tournament this year by winning their respective area tournaments.  The Bow seniors ended the season at 20-10-1 and the Bow juniors ended the season with a record of 24-2.  The awards were also a link to the past as they were named in honor of individuals who have had an impact in the Broken Bow legion program either as a player, coach, or contributor.

The Jerry Shea Most Valuable Player Award was presented to Blake Denson for the seniors and Eli Coble for the juniors.  Denson established himself as the top pitcher this season for the Bow seniors posting a team leading ERA of 2.054 and led the team in strikeouts with 78.  Denson was also one of the top offensive leaders with a batting average of .418 and a slugging percentage of .560.  Coble led the juniors in several offensive categories including a team leading .532 average, .595 on base percentage, and a .681 slugging percentage.
