FIRST TEAM


P Drew Rasmussen (PLAYER OF THE YEAR), Mt. Spokane (Mead), Sr.
Although the numbers he put up at the plate (.425, five homers, 28 RBI) rivaled most of the state’s top batters, this 6-foot-2, hard-throwing righty was even more overwhelming on the mound. He posted an 11-1 record, a 1.48 ERA and 114 strikeouts in 85 innings.

P Branden Kelliher, Lake Stevens, Sr.
