Chesterfield – The Chesterfield baseball team was as competitive as most of the teams that qualified for the Class AA state playoffs in 2021.

Unfortunately, the Rams also played in one of the state’s toughest regions and with the number of playoff qualifiers from each region cut in half this spring, the Rams were on the outside looking in when the Class AA playoff brackets came out.

Chesterfield finished third in region 4-AA, behind Legion Collegiate and Andrew Jackson. Those two teams ended up playing in the AA state championship series, won by Legion Collegiate. The Rams posted a 9-5 record in region play and finished the season with a 19-6 record overall. They closed out the season by winning five of their last six games, including a win over AAA playoff team Marlboro County in the regular season finale.

Chesterfield was good enough to land four players on the all-region team, and had an all-stater and North-South all-star selection as well. Earning all-state honors were Josh Adams, Nick Boswell, Kevin Diggs and Zane Davis. Adams was selected to play in the all-star event and also was named to the Class AA all-state team by the Coaches Association.

In the team’s postseason awards banquet, Adams and Jase Stafford received Captain’s awards. Colton Starling was the Defensive player of the year and Diggs was the team’s offensive player of the year. Boswell earned the pitching award and Boyce Brock earned the Coach’s award.

The Stuart Rayfield award was presented to Adam Bytheway.

Meghan Raynor was selected all-region in softball.

In track, all-region performers included Andrew Threat, Tyler McCoy, Ethan Hough, Kinnick Lowe, Tyrell Melton, Asher Williams, Jymeer Wilks, Tristan Chan, Madison Chan and Na’Shar Murphy. Tye Price received the Captain award.

McCoy, who won the region title in the 110 and 400 hurdles, advanced to the Class AA state meet and finished third in the 110 hurdles finals.

Melton was second in the region in the discus and shot put. He advanced all the way the state finals and finished fourth in the discus. Jaleel McCormick was the region champion in the javelin.

Jaeda Johnson finished sixth in the state finals in the javelin, after winning the region title in that event. Region champions from the girls team included Rah’naysia Ishman (200), Lorianna Dixon (100 hurdles), Tempest Boan (400 hurdles) and Riley Croxton (discus).

Distance runner Faith Alford and triple jumper Abby Lisenby were all-region selections. Lisenby was second in the triple jump at the region meet.
