MAHS grad Kell set for senior season at Penn State Harrisburg

Posted

Senior Ethan Kell, a Middletown Area High School graduate, will help lead the Penn State Harrisburg baseball team.

Kell, a 6-foot-3-inch catcher, is one of eight seniors for the Lions. He played in 85 games his first three years, batting .252 with 6 home runs and 52 RBIs. As a freshman in 2016, he hit PSU’s first home run of the season.

The Lions scored 3 in the top of the ninth Monday at Eastern Mennonite in Harrisonburg, Virginia, to win 12-11. Kell did not play. In a second game, called because of darkness, he scored a run and had one RBI on an error.

The three team captains are senior outfielder Scott Angstadt Jr., senior pitcher Brendan Riotto and sophomore outfielder Chase Smith.

Also on the team is Hunter Crawford, a righthanded sophomore pitcher who went to Lower Dauphin High School.

Penn State is picked to finish third in the Capital Athletic Conference, behind defending conference champions Salisbury and Christopher Newport.
