KingCo 4A Awards - Week 2

KingCo 4A Baseball - Players of the Week
Week 2: March 28 - April 2, 2011

Crest Division
Player of the Week: Zach Abbruzza, Sr., Redmond
For the second week running, Redmond senior Zach Abbruzza captures 4A player of the week honors. Though slowed a bit from his earlier torrid pace, Abbruzza is still setting the league ablaze. Against Crest Division foes Newport and Issaquah, Zach was 3-6 with two homeruns, 5 rbi, and 5 runs scored.

Also nominated: NONE

Pitcher of the Week: Cole Wiper, Sr, Newport
Senior right-hander Cole Wiper led the Newport Knights past the Skyline Spartans in a scintillating performance. The University of Oregon signee befuddled the Spartan hitters in a complete game shutout, only needing 83 pitches on the day. When all was said and done, Wiper struck out ten while only allowing two hits. In two KingCo starts, Wiper has yet to give up a run.

Also nominated: None

Crown Division
Player of the Week: No Nominations

Pitcher of the Week: Brian McAfee, Sr., Bothell
In one of the more dominating performances in recent memory, Bothell’s senior Brian McAfee stymied the Inglemoor Viking offense. Stretching the game to an extra frame as the two teams exchanged zeros, McAfee pitched all eight innings to earn the win. In those eight innings, he surrendered only two baserunners while striking out 14. It was his first KingCo win on the season.
