Despite a poor showing in league play this season, Molalla had players earned all-league awards

PIONEER PHOTO: TANNER RUSS - Jeff Larsen earned honorable mention for his efforts in Molalla's infield this past season. Molalla's baseball team finished up its season with a 9-16 record, and a 4-11 record in the Tri-Valley Conference. The team finished second to last in league, and was ranked 30th in the state overall.

Not the ideal finishing place for a team that tied for first place in league last year, but there were still student athletes who were recognized by the other league coaches for excellence in play.

Sophomore Linden Mackenzie and junior Jeff Larsen earned second team and honorable mentions, respectively, for their work in the infield. Senior Matt Roark received an honorable mention distinction for his role as a utility player. Finally, senior catcher Braden Hibbs earned second team honors for his work behind the dish.

The team graduates Roark and Hibbs after this year, and two other seniors on top of it, but also retains Larsen and Mackenzie, along with a host of returning talent.
