THE GARDEN ISLAND
Alec Reichle, a 2004 Kaua‘i High School graduate, received second team all-conference honors for the Mid-Continent Conference’s baseball post-season.
The freshman starting pitcher for Southern Utah University was joined by his teammates Cameron Nelson, Bucky Aona and Keli‘i Zablan on the second team.
Reichle was a late addition to Southern Utah’s rotation and parlayed the action into a 2-2 record and a 2.92 ERA, marking the lowest ERA of any starting Thunderbird pitcher.
Prior to signing with Southern Utah, Reichle signed with Brigham Young University, but didn’t play because of a medical redshirt. While at Kaua‘i High School, he was a four-year letter winner in baseball and basketball and a two-year letter winner in cross country. Back in 2002, Reichle was named a Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation all-star while playing outfield and first-team all-state honors and league MVP while playing utility and pitcher in 2003. Reichle was also a member of the 2001, 2003 and 2004 KIF championship baseball team.
