    Senior Bryan Meek was a force on the mound and at the plate for Northern League champion Niwot.



The 2014 baseball All-Region team


C — Tanner Kirkpatrick, Sr., Niwot: Batted .423 with 23 RBIs and backstopped a staff that went 21-5 and advanced to the 4A championship game.

1B — Jeff Clarke, Sr., Fairview: As sturdy as they come, the Abilene Christian-bound Clarke was the most formidable figure in a historically proficient Knights lineup. Batted .531 with five homers and 39 RBIs.

IF — Will Amen, Sr., Longmont: The dependable second baseman batted .330 with three homers and 22 RBIs, while also compiling a 7-4 record on the mound with a 3.17 ERA.

IF — Andrew Bladt, Sr., Longmont: Set the Trojans record for RBIs with 35 and had a knack for delivering the key hit. The soon-to-be Marshall product hit .429 with four homers.

IF — Devlin Granberg, Sr., Holy Family: The Creighton-bound athlete was the face of the Tigers’ back-to-back 3A titles. This season, he kept it going with a .456 average that included 16 extra-base hits, three of which were homers.

IF — Pate Katechis, Sr., Niwot: Gave clout to Niwot’s attack with a .422 average, four homers, 30 RBIs and solid defense at third base.

IF — Zach Trombley, Sr., Holy Family: One of the Tigers’ horses on the mound as well, Trombley’s .526 average was abundantly power-centric: 12 doubles, two triples and eight home runs.

OF — Kyle Holbrook, Sr., Broomfield: The future Dartmouth athlete swung a devastating stick from the left side, racking up a .516 average and 14 extra-base hits, including two homers.

OF — Walker Harris, Jr., Fairview: He’s not only a hockey player. From the three-hole in the Knights lineup, Harris’ power blossomed this season with six homers and 25 RBIs to go with a .413 average.

OF — Adam Reigle, Sr., Skyline: Perhaps the region’s most consistent hitter, Reigle was at it again with another above-.400 season. Finished .419 with 15 RBIs.

OF — Cameron Yee, Sr., Longmont: The ultimate leadoff man, Yee set Longmont records with 44 hits and 34 runs scored. Also led the Northern League with 18 stolen bases.

DH — Zach Dedin, Sr., Holy Family: His .575 average was peppered with 17 extra-base hits, including 14 doubles. Was especially effective in the postseason as the Tigers cruised to the 3A crown.

U — Ryan Madden, Jr., Fairview: He might have primarily been known as the 9-1 co-ace of the Knights’ pitching staff, but Madden also carried a .509 batting average into the state tournament.

P — Austin Brown, Jr., Holy Family: Went 6-0 with a 1.63 ERA, and many of the wins were huge. Brown defeated Faith Christian twice, defeated Lamar and threw a three-hitter against Eaton in the championship-clinching win.

P — Ryan Kokora, Sr., Fairview: A 9-0 record and 1.38 ERA paved the way to the Hawaiian-born right-hander being selected in the 35th round of the amateur draft by the Atlanta Braves.

P — Lucas Gilbreath, Sr., Legacy: As dominant as the come in the high school ranks, the left-hander struck out 111 batters in just under 63 innings. He finished with a 6-2 mark and 1.45 ERA. Signed with Minnesota and was drafted by the Rockies in the 36th round.

P — Kyle Leahy, Jr., Erie: The tall right-hander threw a perfect game against Roosevelt as part of a stellar campaign in which he accumulated a 5-2 record, a minuscule 1.07 ERA and 58 strikeouts.

P — Bryan Meek, Sr., Niwot: The Air Force-bound right-hander went 7-1 with a 3.72 ERA and was named the Northern League Player of the Year.

Coach of the year — Craig McBride, Niwot: He remained patient with the Cougars’ building project, which essentially began when this season’s seniors were freshmen. The vision paid off with a run to the 4A championship game.
