Montesano’s Evan Bates, Samantha Stanfield and Hoquiam’s Maddie German picked up MVP honors as the 1A Evergreen League announced its 2018 all-league baseball and softball teams last week.
Bates, the Bulldogs’ second baseman and pitcher, was named the league’s baseball MVP after a season where he helped the Bulldogs to a 20-3 overall record and an appearance in the state championship tournament.
Stanfield was named the 1A Evergreen Offensive MVP this season after winning the league’s Defensive MVP in 2017. The Central Washington-bound senior hit .389 with 34 RBI and six home runs, which tied for the team lead with Lindsay Pace.
This season’s softball Defensive MVP award went to Hoquiam sophomore Maddie German, who was a stall-wart backstop at catcher for the Grizzlies in 2018.
Montesano swept the Coach of the Year awards after both the Bulldogs baseball and softball teams earned league titles. Monte head coach Mike Osgood was named the baseball Coach of the Year while softball head coach Pat Pace and his assistants received the award of Coaching Staff of the Year.
