Janesville's Kersten, Schenck among state Legion all-stars
Janesville will be well represented at the American Legion all-star baseball game Sunday at Miller Park in Milwaukee.
Post 205 head coach Bob Schenck and pitcher Andy Kersten are part of the South roster that also includes Jefferson's Isaac Roth, Monroe's Kramer Henning and Beloit's Jordan Harris.
Sunday's all-star game between the North and South is scheduled for 4:30 p.m., immediately following the 1:05 p.m. game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers.
Schenck, who just completed his seventh season as a Janesville coach, led Post 205 to a third-place finish at this year's Class AAA American Legion State Tournament.
Kersten, a 2011 Janesville Parker graduate and Carroll University recruit, finished the season with a 7-3 record. The righthander threw a no-hitter against Genoa City in Janesville's district opener.
