Crook County Cowgirls put four players on All-IMC softball teams
Despite finishing fifth in the Intermountain Conference, the Crook County High School softball team put a solid contingent of players onto the all-league team.
Leading the way for the Cowgirls was sophomore Tylee Cossitt, who was named to the all-league first team as an infielder. Senior outfielder Mikinley Puckett, an outfielder, and junior infielder Katelynn Weaver were both named to the IMC second team. The final Cowgirl to earn all-league honors was freshman Chloe McKenzie, an outfielder, who received honorable mention.
Chloe Taber of the league champion Pendleton Buckaroos and Teeghan Reams of runner-up Ridgeview were named Co-Players of the Year, while Pendleton's Sauren Garton was named Pitcher of the Year. After guiding the team to a league title, Pendleton head coach Tim Cary was named IMC Coach of the Year.
The Buckaroos, who defeated Wilsonville on Saturday, June 4, to win the state championship, dominated the all-league team by placing five players on the all-league first team and receiving two honorable mentions. Ridgeview, which lost to Lebanon in the state quarterfinals, placed three players on the first team and four on the second team.
