Cedarcrest High School players, coaches recognized by Cascade Conference

We have some postseason recognition to report to you from the Cascade Conference. Several players and coaches from Cedarcrest High School earned recognition from the conference.

The conference has unveiled their postseason all-league teams for spring sports. We already made a mention of the softball awards, but should also mention that their head coach, Chris Gastelum, was named conference Coach of the Year for helping lead the Red Wolves to the conference crown this spring.

Three boys’ soccer players made the Cascade first team – senior forward Chuy Espinosa, senior forward Bryan Bodnar and senior defender Morgan Walker.

Baseball had several players and coach Scott Goldsberry recognized. Goldsberry was named Cascade Coach of the Year for leading the Red Wolves to the conference crown this spring; anchoring that run was pitcher Adam Davenport, and the senior was named the league’s Player of the Year. Davenport finished the spring with a stellar 10-1 record and an earned run average of under 1.00, allowing under 10 runs and striking out over 100. He also hit around .400 this spring, and was Cedarcrest’s top hitter.

Junior catcher Blaine Wagner and junior outfielder Jacob Jewell earned league first-team honors, while senior pitcher Andrew Willmon and junior infielder Tanner Schaefer were awarded second-team recognition on the All-Cascade postseason baseball list.

As we noted yesterday, several Red Wolves earned postseason recognition for softball as well – recapping that, juniors Kayla Blakslee and Hailey Lacher along with freshman Lauren Rich earned all-league first team honors, while sophomore Maddie Nixon and freshman Elaine Townley took home second-team recognition, with seniors Allie McCain and LuAnn Townley, along with freshman Cassidy Derieg, taking home honorable mentions.
