C – Kat Sackett, Sr., Erie: The BoCoPreps player of the year helped Erie slug its way to the state title, finishing third in Colorado in home runs (15), eighth in slugging (1.258) and 10th in RBIs (47). She was later named the CHSAA Player of the Year in Class 4A.
INF – Peyton Gale, Jr., Frederick: Gale provided the pop in the lineup for Frederick with a 1.015 slugging percentage thanks to 10 doubles, four triples and five home runs, leading the team in all categories, and her production resulted in 27 runs driven in to lead the Warriors. Despite a tough year for the team, Gale proved again to be one of the top hitters in the Tri-Valley League.
INF – Madysun Vaughan, Erie: The other power hitter in the lineup for Erie, Vaughan hit 15 home runs and was in the top 20 in the state in RBIs with 54. She also boasted a 1.101 slugging percentage as Erie averaged 11.5 runs per game.

INF – Brooklyn Enny, Fr., Lyons: Not a bad welcome to the high school sports season for the freshman this year. Enny was thrown right in on the left side of the infield and turned five double-plays as a key defensive player. At the plate, she hit .517 and recorded 11 doubles, four triples and five home runs that led to 43 RBIs. The future looks bright for one of the top freshmen in the area.
INF – Jamie Rader, Peak to Peak: Rader played in all 24 games for Peak to Peak and managed to hit for a .607 batting average, the second-best in their conference. Slugging numbers improved late in the season as she hit 12 of her 13 doubles in the final eight games to lead the Pumas. A young team this year, Rader and the Pumas hope to return to the state tournament next season.
OF – Angeline Mitchell, Sr., Longmont: Mitchell was dominant in all phases of the game for the Trojans. On offense, she hit .625 and drove in 20 runs at the plate. When she wasn’t pitching a team-high 107 innings in the circle, Mitchell held played a strong defense and had a perfect fielding percentage.
OF – Bryna Kapelke, Jr., Broomfield: Kapelke was another player who stepped up at the plate for Broomfield in 2019, hitting for a .506 batting average with 36 RBIs, a big improvement from hitting .329 and 20 RBIs a year ago. She had some big hits late in the season to help Broomfield fight its way to the second round of the Class 5A state tournament.
OF – Anna Martinez, Sr., Holy Family: Martinez picked up where she left off as a key hitter in the top of the lineup and slightly improved her batting average to hit .500 for the season. Her job of getting on base resulted in her leading the team with 44 runs scored, and she also had a .944 fielding percentage in the outfield to anchor the defense.
OF – Samantha Powell, Sr., Skyline: One of the best hitters in the Tri-Valley League again this fall, Powell used her speed to hit for a .647 batting average and steal 41 bases. Her speed also helped play well defensively to the tune of a .971 fielding percentage. Skyline won eight games this season, the most they have won in quite some time.
DH – Hannah Schwieger, Jr., Lyons: The Lions made it back to the state tournament for the first time in nine years and Schwieger played a large role in that. She finished in the top 20 in RBIs with 43 and a .524 batting average while also finishing as one of the top defensive catchers in the state.
DH – Trish Leins, Jr., Monarch: Despite finishing 10th in the Front Range League standings, teams feared facing Leins at the plate. Monarch’s leading hitter finished with a .603 batting average that was second in the conference and drove in a league-high 40 runs in just 23 games. Monarch will look forward to having Leins return in 2020.
P – Maddie Kuehl, Jr., Silver Creek: Kuehl was one of the best pitchers in all of Colorado, finishing sixth in the state with a 1.56 ERA. She pounded the strike zone and recorded 225 strikeouts, resulting in an 8.3 strikeout-to-walk ratio. For the second straight season, Silver Creek reached the semifinal round in the state tournament.
P – Cassidy Chvatal, Jr., Holy Family: Chvatal was thrown into the ace spot of the pitching rotation and did not disappoint, finishing with a 2.48 ERA and 112 strikeouts in 101 2/3 innings. Her pitching helped the Tigers make it to the semifinal round in the Class 4A state softball tournament.
P – Hannah Farley, Sr., Legacy: The senior leader for a team that was younger this fall anchored the circle, throwing 155 2/3 innings and finishing with a 3.06 ERA. Farley also hit .410 at the plate as Legacy won its regional tournament and made it to the quarterfinal round at state.
Coach of the Year – Vanessa Smith, Erie: In just her first season taking over as head coach, Smith helped Erie win the state title, a feat even more impressive given that they were the No. 14 seed in the 16-team bracket and entered the postseason on a four-game losing streak. It was the first state championship for Erie since 2010 and now gives the program 12 all time.
