Baseball & Softball Season Recap

(May 25, 2017) Shoreline, WA- With the spring sports season coming to a close we highlight the top performers for the Dolphin Baseball and Softball teams.

 

The Shoreline Baseball team finished the season with an overall record of 22-19 and 10-14 in league play. Twenty wins in the NWAC North is quite the feat when consistently battling perennial powers like Everett, Edmonds and Bellevue. The NWAC North routinely puts 3 or 4 teams in the top 25 of all West Coast Junior Colleges. Under the leadership this past season from Sophomore’s Korey Longaker, Zach Zurbrugg and David Becker the Dolphins have been put in a good spot to be vaulted to the top of the league in the coming years.

Those three sophomore’s received recognition from the head coaches representing the other North teams. Zach Zurbrugg was voted in as the Gold Glove catcher, an award highlighting the leagues best defensive catcher. Zurbrugg, who will be attending Jamestown University next season recorded zero passed balls and on the season hit .290 with 3 home runs and 18 RBI’s.  David Becker was voted 1st Team All NWAC North Utility Player. Becker was a valuable player for the Phins’ logging innings at First Base, Second Base and Third Base. Becker, who will be attending Univerity of Illinois- Chicago on a baseball scholarship next season finished the year with a .353 batting average and led the North in stolen bases with 26. Korey Longaker was voted as the leagues top defensive centerfielder, also winning the Gold Glove Award. Longaker also was a 1st Team All NWAC North Selection in the outfield as well finished the 2017 season with a batting average of .347, 22 stolen bases and 22 RBI’s.

The Phins Baseball squad return a young pitching staff that will help lead a strong recruiting class toward a North Championship in 2018.

Shoreline Community College Softball had a season of rebuilding after 2016 brought them a birth in the NWAC Championship Tournament and a top 10 RPI ranking at the end of the regular season. A couple sophomore’s from that 2016 team shined again this year. One in particular, Shelby Reyes was honored by the league being voted to the All NWAC North 2nd team as an outfielder. Reyes finished with a batting average of .321 with 2 home runs and 27 RBI’s. Fellow sophomore’s Cheyanne Garcia, Dakota Green, Drew Camacho and Jeralyn Pasoquen finished the season strong as well boasting batting averages of .315, .346, .391 and .283 respectively.

The Phins return 4 players: Maleah Woodley, Hope Lawrence, Khaylie Adachi- Kawamae and Meggan Van Berg. These four sophomore’s combined with a solid recruiting class will make for a fun and exciting 2018 season.
