This spring was shaping up to be a solid final year for Logan Mayfield if the numbers from his first few games with the Galt Warriors were any indication.
Before the season was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic that forced school shutdowns, Mayfield had a .389 batting average and seven hits, including a triple, seven runs and five RBI in the Warriors’ 3-3 season that started March 3 and ended March 13.
Next, Mayfield will study at West Point after excelling in both the classroom and at baseball and basketball at Galt.
Mayfield made the varsity basketball team all four years and stood out on the court. In baseball, he pitched and played first base.
“He has probably the best leadership qualities in any kid I’ve coached. West Point is getting exactly what their program stands for. They’re getting a leader,” Mayfield’s varsity baseball coach, Jason Evans said in May. “He was going to have a big year for us this year. He hit the ball harder this year. We spent a ton of time last year defensively. His defensive skills came a long way in the two years that I’ve worked with them.”
Known for his ability to dunk as well as help lead Warrior basketball (Mayfield earned All-League honors within the Sierra Valley Conference his senior year), Mayfield was a solid choice to earn Galt High School’s top athletic/academic award this year and was chosen as Galt’s Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year as well as earning a spot on the Optimist All-Star team this year.
