Pitcher Larson Kindreich, shortstop Nick Bastendorff and third baseman Trae Frodge were all honored as first teamers by a vote of league coaches.

Frodge, a senior, batted .481 with 29 runs, 36 RBIs and five home runs. Bastendorff, also a senior, had a .417 regular season batting average with 31 runs and 23 RBIs.
Crater players selected to the second team are sophomore pitcher Jacob Memmott, sophomore second baseman Trever Davis and junior outfielder Blake Hollingsworth.
Skylar Gaudern, an Eagle Point sophomore, was picked as a second-team pitcher and Eagles senior pitcher Dylan Marsh was given an honorable mention nod.
