KITSAP COUNTY — Nearly the entire Olympic starting nine made the 2A Olympic League first and second teams, as voted upon by the coaches.
Olympic’s potent offense, in particular, was well-represented. Third baseman Kaira Cabato led the way with a .676 average, three home runs and 21 RBI. Sophomore Molly Gates also brought plenty of pop, clubbing a team-leading six home runs with 38 RBI, and batting .645, as did fellow sophomore Morgan Kroesser, who drove in 34 runs with six homers and ten doubles to go along with a .590 average. Leadoff hitter Kiki Mitchell had a .532 on base percentage and scored 33 runs.
Four players from Klahowya’s state tournament qualifying team graced this year’s 1A All-League list.
Senior pitcher Amber Bumbalough was named the co-Most Valuable Player after another outstanding year. The Northern Illinois University commit batted .593 and smashed nine home runs and 11 doubles. She drove in 27 runs and scored 33 of her own thanks to a ridiculous .692 on-base percentage that came due to, in part, the fact that many coaches simply opted to intentionally walk her towards the end of the regular season.
In the circle, Bumbalough struck out 204 batters in 135 1/3 innings and had a 2.79 ERA, winning 11 games for the Eagles.
Sophomore Maile Lueck was an on-base machine for the Eagles this year at the top of the order. Her .370 batting average and .491 OBP were second only to Bumbalough on the team. Lueck also picked up two doubles and two triples and stole 14 bases in 15 attempts.
Sophomore Hannah Bastian hit .231 with two doubles and nine RBI, and junior Alyssa Edwards batted .240 with three doubles.
Leading the charge for Central Kitsap was first-team All-South Sound Conference pick Zee Young, who batted .541 with three home runs. Fellow senior Calli Frisinger was named to the second team.
