With Ridgeview winning a state softball title, the Ravens were expectedly well represented on the all-Intermountain Conference team, but other local softball and baseball players also showed up.

Softball

Ridgeview coach Sandy Fischer and her assistants took home the coaching staff of the year award, while star junior pitcher Allicitie Frost was named pitcher of the year. The selections were made before the Ravens won the state title June 1, which could explain why Makenzie Chambers of Hood River Valley, which finished two games behind the league champion Ravens, was named IMC player of the year.

Other Ravens joining Frost on first-team all-league were senior infielder Natalie Hill and sophomore outfielder Sage McVay. Redmond had two first-team infield selections — freshman Aspen Bradley and senior Scout DeMain.

Making second-team all-league for Ridgeview was senior catcher Lorena Vasquez, sophomore infielders Marley Sargent and Kiani Nakamura and senior outfielder Taylor Smith. For the Panthers, sophomore pitcher Hailey Heising and junior outfielder Audrey McKenzie were named to the second team.

Honorable mention selections were sophomore outfielder Ally Henry and freshman utility player Teeghan Reams for Ridgeview and junior catcher Jinya Glenn and senior infielder Ondriah Oyloe for Redmond.

Baseball

Redmond narrowly missed out on the baseball playoffs but hit on several all-IMC picks. Junior pitcher Quinn Robertson was a first-team selection for the Panthers, while senior outfielder Evan Hockett made the first-team for Ridgeview.

A quartet of juniors — infielders Colt Folston and Cooper Browning, catcher Andrew McKague and outfielder Henry Chambers — made second-team all-league for Redmond, while McKague was also selected honorable mention at pitcher, along with Panthers sophomore utility selection Rhett Haigh.

Correction: An earlier version of this story neglected to mention Andrew McKague was a second-team selection at catcher, along with making honorable mention at pitcher. The Spokesman regrets the error.
