Benji Medure, Huntington Beach
It sure didn’t look like a special season was going to happen through the first seven games, as Huntington Beach sported a 2-5 record. But the talented Oilers kept their composure, thrived at a difficult North Carolina tournament (National High School Invitational) and wound up winning their first championship in the school’s 107-year history.


Player of the Year
Joe DeMers, P, College Park (Pleasant Hill), 6-2/235, Sr.
The Washington signee was 13-1 and still produced a 0.51 ERA despite throwing 96 innings. That’s made possible in large part by throwing three no-hitters. And he helped his cause at the plate by slugging .447 with six home runs and 44 RBI.
