CHS, MSHS spring sports athletes earn recognition on postseason all-league lists

We have some news for you this afternoon on all-league postseason recognition for a pair of Valley high school sports teams.

The Cascade Conference has announced its all-league selections for baseball, and a pair of Cedarcrest High School players made it to the conference’s first team. Junior pitcher Aaron Davenport and sophomore outfielder Tyler Gray both were named to that first team on the strength of successful seasons. Gray hit a solid .321 this spring, with eight doubles as part of his 17 total hits in 53 at-bats, scoring 15 runs and driving in 13 more for a Red Wolves team that finished the season 6-15 and with a first-round loss in the Northwest 2A District playoffs to Mountlake Terrace.

Davenport went 3-4 this season with an eye-popping 0.48 earned run average in nine appearances this spring, all starts. In those outings, he pitched 44 innings total, allowing just three earned runs out of 15 total on 23 hits, walking 23 and striking out 83. At the plate, he also fared well, hitting .278 with 16 runs scored and four more driven in. Among his 15 hits in 54 total at-bats this season were the only two triples for CHS this spring.

Senior outfielders Jared Pletcher and Josh Goodrich also earned honorable mentions this season in those positions. Pletcher hit .268 this season with three runs scored and three RBI’s, while Goodrich finished the season hitting .250 with a double, 10 runs scored and seven RBI’s.

The Kingco Conference has also named its postseason all-league selections for softball, and four Mount Si High School players received honorable mentions. Senior first baseman Heather Hinton, catcher Maddy Trout and shortstop Kara Link, along with sophomore outfielder Abby Gronewald, all received recognition.

In both cases, awards were voted on by league coaches at their postseason meetings which both took place recently at schools within their leagues.

The SVSJ offers its congratulations on this recognition for these Valley student-athletes.
