Crest Division
Player of the Week: Michael Conforto, Jr., Redmond

Michael Conforto, a junior infielder for the Mustangs, is the winner of the Crest Division Player of the Week for week 2 of KingCo play.

Pitcher of the Week: Zach Abbruzza, Jr., Redmond

In a week with many impressive pitching performances, Redmond junior Zach Abbruzza takes home the pitching award for the Crest Division in week 2. Facing an Issaquah lineup that was averaging 11.8 runs per game in 4 KingCo contests, Abbruzza was in control from start to finish, allowing just 1 hit and 2 walks in five shutout innings. Not one Eagle runner made it past second base, and the junior right-hander struck out five in the process. The shutout completed a week where Redmond did not allow a single run, outscoring their three opponents, 20-0.

Also nominated: Dylan Davis, Redmond; Jared Fisher, Newport; Cole Wiper, Newport

Crown Division
Player of the Week: Peter Meuisi, Jr., Inglemoor
Continuing the trend of junior award winners is Peter Meuisi, Inglemoor's third baseman, who is the Crown Division player of the week for week 2. Meuisi had an incredible week for the Vikings, finishing the three games 6-for-8 with a double, triple, grand slam and 7 RBI. His grand slam came in a six-run first inning of Inglemoor's 10-7 win over Lake Washington, which completed their sweep of the Crown Division.

Also nominated: Marc Dickerson, Inglemoor; Brian McAfee, Bothell

Pitcher of the Week: Dustin Doucette, Jr., Inglemoor
Inglemoor junior right-hander Dustin Doucette is the fourth and final award winner, taking home Crown Pitcher of the Week honors in week 2. Doucette was dominant in two relief efforts, picking up a win and a save in 5 innings of work. The junior allowed just 3 hits and a run while striking out 9 batters, including eight consecutive punchouts in Inglemoor's 10-7 win over LW on Friday night. Doucette was also nominated last week, and is off to a great start out of the Viking bullpen.
