P – Mia Acosta, Sophomore, Bellarmine-Jefferson

Transfer made an immediate impact in leading the Guards back to the CIF final. The All-CIF Southern Section Division VII first-teamer and Santa Cruz League MVP allowed just one run in the playoffs and none in league play, while posting a 13-3 record.

UTL – Caitlyn Brooks, Freshman, Burbank

Had a terrific debut season, as the All-CIF and All-Pacific League first-teamer posted a 16-5 record in the circle in leading the Bulldogs to the CIF quarterfinals. Also notched a 1.95 ERA 180 strikeouts in 147 innings. She was just as impressive at the plate, with a .429 average, 23 RBI and 22 runs.

IF – Hailey Cookson, Freshman, Crescenta Valley

Standout shortstop was a second-team All-Pacific League pick who hit .551 with 17 doubles, 14 RBI and 36 runs scored.

OF – Hannah Cookson, Soph., Crescenta Valley

It was another season and another line of astronomical numbers for the All-CIF Southern Section Division III and All-Pacific League first-team pick. Cookson led the area with 16 home runs and a mind-spinning .731 average on 49 hits. She added five doubles, five triples, 53 RBI and 41 runs scored.


P – Michelle Floyd, Junior, San Marino

University of Arizona-bound flamethrower was an All-CIF Southern Section Division V first-teamer and the Rio Hondo League Most Valuable Player. Posted a 16-7 record and a 0.88 ERA while striking out 288 over 160 innings. Wasn't bad at the plate either, hitting .444 with 32 hits, 19 runs, eight doubles and five home runs.

OF – Katie Hooper, Senior, Burbank

One of the most feared hitter in the area, was an All-Pacific League first-teamer with .467 batting average, compiling 42 hits, 39 RBI, 11 home runs and 45 runs scored during the Bulldogs' second-place league run.

C – Catherine Horner, Senior, La Cañada

CIF Southern Section Division V Player of the Year was equally crucial to the Spartans' title run behind the plate and at it. First-team All-Rio Hondo League pick hit .418 with 39 runs, 29 RBI, 15 doubles and a .735 slugging percentage – all team-highs. The Tulsa-bound backstop also threw out seven of 12 runners that tried to steal on her, while playing error-free ball for the last two seasons.

OF – Colleen McWilliams, Senior, La Salle

Center fielder hit .420 with 34 hits, 21 RBI, 19 runs, seven doubles and three home runs on her way to first-team All-Del Rey League first-team honors.
