Wes Banks - Wayland Academy Baseball

Banks Shines on All-Star Baseball Squad

This summer, Wayland senior Wesley Banks was named to an elite baseball team to represent Wisconsin in an inter-state baseball challenge between top underclass baseball prospects in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

In late June, Banks was one of 139 athletes in the Wisconsin Baseball Showcase in Kenosha, Wis. Showcasing his versatility, he played first base, third base, and pitched a few innings, and in his first two games at the showcase, he went 7 for 8 at the plate with four doubles and three singles.
