Crown Division
Player of the Week: Reid Martinez, Sr., Roosevelt
Roosevelt’s senior outfielder did it all this past week for the Roughriders, earning Kingco 4A Player of the Week honors. At the plate, he was 6-9, scoring four runs. He also drove in four as he hit two doubles and a homerun. On the base paths, Martinez was equally dangerous as he swiped five bases. Currently Martinez leads Kingco 4A with ten stolen bases.

Also nominated: Nelson Cooper, Ballard

Pitcher of the Week: Brian McAfee, Sr., Bothell
The senior pitcher continues to dazzle on the year, amassing some staggering pitching numbers. This week against Issaquah, McAfee threw 6 1/3 no-hit innings. At the end of the day, he captured Crown Pitcher of the Week honors as he threw a one hit complete game shutout, striking out ten while only walking one. The performance allowed the Cougars to escape with a 1-0 win (McAfee also hit the solo homerun that decided the game). This is McAfee’s second time receiving Pitcher of the Week recognition this year. This is his third consecutive shutout in Kingco play and he has only allowed two runs in four Kingco games on the year.
