He led the team in doubles (12) and tied for second-most home runs (2).

Well recorded a 5-2 record on the mound, leading the team with a 2.08 ERA and throwing a two-hit shutout as the Vandals won the school’s first baseball regional title.

In the school’s first sectional contest, Well doubled and scored the Vandals’ only run.

In the 2022 season, Well had a .326 average (30 hits in 92 at-bats), 15 RBI’s, an on-base percentage of .388, a slugging percentage of .522 and a .910 OPS (on-base plus slugging).

He also is on the football and baseball teams at VCHS and was named all-conference in basketball last year.

Well joins the long list of Vandals continuing their baseball careers at KC: Richie Well (his brother), Kelly Jones, Nathan Casey, Blake Morrison, Matthew Wells and Jaydon Lotz.
