Catching up on a few Caribou Trail League-related notes on a rainy Tuesday afternoon while waiting for tonight’s North Central Washington Sports Awards....
4 CTL softball players named all-state Four Caribou Trail League softball players were named to the Washington Interscholastic Athletic Association’s 1A all-state team, released Tuesday.
Okanogan’s Tyler Schreckengost and Cascade’s Ali Schauer were named to the second team, while the Bulldogs’ Kelsey Chiles and the Kodiak’s Laura Hester were honorable mention selections.
Schreckengost and Chiles helped lead Okanogan to a second-place finish in the CTL and a state berth this season, the Bulldogs’ first trip to state since 2006.
Schauer, a pitcher/utility player, and Hester, a catcher, thrived all season long in the middle of Cascade’s explosive lineup. The Kodiaks won their fourth consecutive CTL championship, advanced to the state semifinals and earned a top-six state finish.
Connell’s Ashley Thompson was named as the all-state team’s most valuable player. Thompson helped to lead the Eagles to a state championship.
Chelan soccer players named all-state The Chelan soccer team, which advanced to the 1A state championship game last month, placed five players on the Washington State Soccer Coaches Association 1A all-state team.
Junior midfielder Eleazar Galvan and junior forward Alelandro Angulo received first-team honors, while freshman defender Juan Garcia was a second-team selection, and junior defender Julio Vera and senior goalkeeper Ruben Medina were named as honorable mentions.
Overlake forward Jesse Klug was named as the state’s MVP. Overlake defeated the Goats in the state title game.
Chelan’s Schwartz honored at all-star football game Chelan’s Cole Schwartz was named as the defensive most valuable player for the East squad at Saturday’s Earl Barden All-Star Classic, held in Moxee.
The contest matched some of the state’s best high school players from the 2A, 1A, 2B and 1B ranks against each other.
The West prevailed 34-28 on a fourth-quarter touchdown run by Interlake’s Jordan Todd, his third of the game.
Schwartz started at outside linebacker and was one of the squad’s two punt returners. He returned an interception 50 yards to the West’s 2-yard line, setting up the East’s first score — a 1-yard run by Omak’s Dylan Green — in the first quarter.
“(Cole) was his usual self, running sideline to sideline to be in on many tackles,” said Chelan coach Darren Talley.
Green ran seven times for one yard, while Quincy wide receiver Kody Berens recorded one catch for five yards.
