With their regular seasons drawing to a close last Friday, the coaches of the Far West League convened to pick the top athletes of this year’s softball and baseball lineups to dole out league awards and honors. The Bruins walked away with several awards in both softball and baseball to end this year’s regular play season on a high note.
While the Bruins softball team ended their season just short of a chance at playoffs after a going 3-0 against the Marshfield Pirates last week, several of the Bruins top players were recognized as top players in the Far West League.
Senior Hannah Humphrey received a First Team All-League award at center and right field. She was the only Bruins player to earn First Team Honors this year.
Gracie Harms made a splash by taking Second Team Pitcher as a freshman, while freshman Alexia Schofield and senior Barrieanne Fallert received Second Team Infielder awards at shortstop and third base respectively. Junior Kaylee Strain rounded things off with a Second Team Outfield award.
Despite graduating five seniors, this year’s awards prove the Bruins will return next year with a pool of talented players.
The Bruins baseball team wrapped up their season strong with a clean 3-0 wins against the Marshfield Pirates. Their season continues this Friday when they host the Sweet Home Huskies, but in the meantime, the Bruins walked away from their regular league season with several All-League awards.
Junior Roman Worthey earned First Team Pitcher, while junior Jon Kleepsies took one of four First Team Outfield awards.
For second team, sophomore Manny Zamora and senior Jacob Racho earned Outfielder awards and Cody Testa earned a Second Team Utility award as an infielder and right-handed pitcher.
Freshmen Adam Shew and Jacob McCullum earned Honorable Mentions alongside Senior Justin Vanginerdern.
The Bruins graduate only three seniors this year, with next year look especially promising as they advance to the Play Ins this weekend.
