Louisburg senior first baseman Kolby Kattau was named to the KABC all-star game that is to be played Wednesday at Kansas State University.

Kolby Kattau has been a consistent player for the Louisburg baseball team for the last two years — consistently good, that is.

Kattau, who was a first team All-Frontier League player a year ago, earned the same honor again at the end of his senior season. Those weren’t the only honors to come his way.

The Kansas Association of Baseball Coaches released their all-state team and the Louisburg first baseman earned a spot on the Class 4A first team.

Kattau was one of the top hitters in the Frontier League. He finished the season with a .471 average in 82 plate appearances and had an OPS of 1.294. He had 33 hits on the season, seven doubles, five triples and a home run from the leadoff spot.

“This year meant a lot being my last year playing baseball with my teammates,” Kattau said. “I have been playing with since I was a kid and to earn all-state in my senior year means a lot. It shows that all my work has paid off.”

That wasn’t the only honor to come Kattau’s way. The KABC also announced their annual all-star game roster and Kattau made his way onto that list as well.
