The junior from Mount Pulaski was chosen to the first team as
both a shortstop and a pitcher.
Lowery batted .507 with 26
RBIs and 26 runs scored for the Toppers this season. On the
mound the 6' 3" 180 pound right-hander led the Toppers pitching
staff with an 8-1 record. His 1.18 ERA and 92 strikeouts were
also tops for the Toppers.
As part of the 2014 Class 1A All-State Team, Lowery has been
invited by the Chicago White Sox to take part in the "All-Star"
night at U.S. Cellular Field on Monday, July 21, 2014.
The 20-man team from across Illinois will take part in a
pre-game dinner courtesy of the White Sox, meet one of the
current White Sox players, and will be presented on the foul
line of U.S. Cellular Field before the game.
In a letter Lowery received from the IHSBCA it was noted that
in reference to the game on July 21st, "It is a great night and
a night to recognize your outstanding efforts this season. It
was not an easy task to pick these teams and you should be very
proud of your efforts."
