OF — ZACH BEROHN, Sr., Monarch: Coyotes’ three-hole hitter had a great eye at the plate (.577 OBP thanks in part to 15 walks), scored 26 runs and drove in 14.

OF — COOPER ROTHE, Sr., Longmont: The .337 average doesn’t pop, but Rothe made things happen with 11 steals, 24 runs and 12 extra-base hits as a leadoff hitter.

Coach — JOE MCKENZIE, Dawson School: The Mustangs went the distance in McKenzie’s third year at the helm, an amazing turnaround considering the team had just three wins when the current seniors were freshmen.
