The 2018-19 baseball and softball Humboldt-Del Norte League All-County selections are in and with them, one last chance to salute the student-athletes who put together memorable seasons. The Big 5 Conference saw all four of its MVP nods go to McKinleyville High while St. Bernard’s landed three of the four Little 4 Conference MVP winners. Baseball — Big 5 MVPs 2019 saw the McKinleyville High baseball team win its first Big 5 title since 1996 and the shutdown pitching of Cameron Saso combined with the power-hitting of Dustin Ireland were two of the biggest reasons why — making both clear choices for Big 5 Co-Most Valuable Player honors. Saso started nine games in 2019 and earned the win in eight of them. The incoming senior finished his year with a 1.17 ERA and 75 strikeouts over 59.2 innings pitched. Ireland, a senior last season, led the Big 5 in batting average (0.468), hits (37) and RBIs (30). McKinleyville’s Corbin Eichin, Lance Lally and Kyler Carr each were named to the Big 5 All-Conference team. Softball — Big 5 MVPs 2019 was a truly historic season for McKinleyville High softball. The Panthers finished the season with a Big 5 title, as Charles Lakin H-DNL Tournament winners and as North Coast Section D-IV champions — its first NCS title since 1988. The team also won a program-record 23 games last season. Panthers’ pitcher McKenzie Gonsalves and position player Olivia Alves garnered Co-MVP awards — clear cut choices off of what was perhaps the best Panthers team, ever. Gonsalves, the starter and winner in the majority of McKinleyville’s games in 2019, closed out her high school career with a complete-game four-hitter in an 11-1 win over St. Patrick St. Vincent in the NCS D-IV title games. Alves, McKinleyville’s catcher and likewise a senior last season, had two hits and a run scored in the win over SPSV. Jaycee Morais, Lexi White and Grace Rosebrook all made the Big 5 All-Conference team. Baseball — Little 4 MVPs If Caleb Ruiz started the game or entered it in 2019, you could count on two handfuls of strikeouts. The lone senior on the St. Bernard’s baseball team recorded 127 strikeouts in 62 innings pitcher — an average of just over two strikeouts per inning. That gaudy stat line line combined with his 0.90 ERA made the soon-to-be College of the Redwoods player a shoe-in for Little 4 MVP honors. Caleb Ruiz, pitcher for St. Bernard’s, was named the Little 4 Conference Co-MVP along with teammate Hunter Davis. (Jose Quezada — For the Times-Standard) “Caleb’s just a competitor,” St. Bernard’s head coach Matt Tomlin said. “His fastball touches 88 miles per hour and he has a really sharp breaking ball. His development from his freshman to senior season was more than you’ve seen out of a pitcher in a long time; his improvement was amazing.” Hunter Davis, a true captain of the defense at catcher and one of the Crusaders’ most lethal hitters, earned the other half of the conference’s Co-MVP award. Davis had 27 hits, 16 RBIs and three home runs in 2019. Davis struck out just five times compared to 19 walks during what was a 17-10 year for St. Bernard’s. “Hunter does a great job behind the plate for us,” Tomlin said. “And at the plate he’s a smart hitter and patient. He had a special year and was a must for our team.” Bode Joyner, Lane Thrap and Cole Petrusha  earned the Crusaders’ additional Little 4 All-Conference selections. Softball — Little 4 MVPs The lone conference to not issue both of its MVP awards to one team, Little 4 softball acknowledged Hoopa’s standout freshman pitcher Savannah Ray Colegrove and St. Bernard’s senior Ally Del Grande as Co-MVPs. Colegrove led Hoopa to a NCS D-V championship, capping off her inaugural season with the Warriors with a complete-game four-hitter in a 4-3 upset road-win over the tournament’s No. 1 seed, St. Vincent de Paul. Del Grande was the biggest arm and the biggest bat for St. Bernard’s last season, starting all 20 of the Crusaders’ games at pitcher and consistently leading the team offensively in hits and RBIs on a day-in, day-out basis. Hoopa’s Savannah Ray Colegrove, Nas Hunsucker, Alexia Jackson and Daisy Tracy each earned Little 4 All-Conference nods, as did two other St. Bernard’s players, Emma Wilson and Calissa Stokesberry. Baseball — All-Conference Big 5 The NCS D-IV champion Arcata High baseball team named two players to the Big 5 All-Conference team, Merick Sears and Jaden Gorge. Sears, Arcata’s No. 1 option at pitcher, proved nearly impossible to hit on most outings in 2019 including in the NCS title game when the incoming senior delivered a complete-game, four-hit shutout in a 3-0 win over McKinleyville. Gorge, a four-year player for Arcata, was, according to his head coach Troy Ghisetti, the “ultimate quiet leader,” and a young man who “brought it everyday, practice or games, it doesn’t matter for Jaden he’s going to show up and work hard.” The Charles Lakin Tournament champions, Eureka High, had three players — Keenan Morris, David Vagle and Hayden Bode — named to the All-Big 5 team. Fortuna’s Sheaden Kadle and Del Norte’s Kaden Ritter each also made the All-Conference squad. Softball — All-Conference Big 5 Arcata High’s softball team enjoyed its first winning season in a decade and two Tigers, Kori McCracken and Maria Morehouse, earned Big 5 All-Conference team spots for it. Eureka High, runners-up in the Big 5, named Karyn Jensen, Alexa Morehouse and Sadie Hampton to the All-Conference team while Fortuna’s Paige Johnson and Del Norte’s Laycee Coopman each earned the honor as well. Baseball — All-Conference Little 4 The D-VI runners up, South Fork, named three players to the Little 4 All-Conference team — C.J. Van Meter, Cooper Scott and Cody Wyatt. Ferndale’s Landon Gomes and Austin Hughes each made the All-Conference list as well, as did Hoopa’s Daniel Minton and Kagan Renteria. Softball — All-Conference Little 4 The back-to-back D-VI champion South Fork softball team named sisters Jasmine and Joslin Todd to the Little 4 All-Conference team while Ferndale chose MacKenzie Renner for its lone selection.

And so it begins — later than expected. The Avalanche has so many offseason moves to make, I believed it would have begun long before last weekend’s draft. But save for the spring signings of goaltenders Pavel Francouz and Adam Werner, the Avs had been going about their business in a relatively quiet manner. They didn’t make a trade during the draft — just following through with their eight picks — and they still have 11 restricted free agents to deal with before/after unrestricted free agency begins July 1, the day I expect them to sign a top-six forward as they continue to acknowledge that the future is now. Then Tuesday came, and Colorado found a way to offset major offseason surgeries to veteran defensemen Erik Johnson (shoulder) and Ian Cole (both hips) — while also shedding more than $3 million in salary-cap space to assist in free agency. Colorado acquired veteran defenseman Kevin Connauton, 29, and a 2020 third-round draft pick from the Arizona Coyotes for veteran center Carl Soderberg, 33. Connauton ($1.37 million cap hit) and Soderberg ($4.75 million) are both entering the final year of their contracts, which means Colorado saves more than $3.38 million in cap space to help back up the ATM machines for RFA winger Mikko Rantanen and RFA defenseman Nikita Zadorov, among others. Additionally, with Johnson and Cole potentially sidelined when the 2019-20 season begins Oct. 3, Connauton provides that physical, shut-down role; Johnson and Cole were Colorado’s primary two penalty-killing defensemen last season. Rantanen is due an annual salary of $8 million or more, making him the team’s highest-paid player, and the Avs have said they would prefer a long-term contract for their All-Star right winger. They could potentially devout $80 million to the 22-year-old Finn. Zadorov, 24, could be headed to arbitration, so it’s anyone’s guess what his next contract will look like. As for Soderberg, it was good knowing you. Legally blind in one eye, he is the only player in the Avalanche dressing room without a nickname — he was just “Carl” — and probably the most modest, easy-going professional athlete I’ve ever worked with. Always available, never grumpy — and he had this thing about asking about my family after I asked about his. [related_articles location=”right” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”] Tremendous team-friendly character. Soderberg was a healthy scratch to begin the 2017-18 season in New York, as the Avs accepted the fact he was too slow and too old after producing just 14 points in 80 games in that ugly, franchise-low 48-point season of 2016-17. But injuries forced him into the lineup and suddenly Soderberg became Colorado’s second-line center — a role he played most of last season while giving young forwards Alex Kerfoot, J.T. Compher and Tyson Jost more time to develop. In a team release Tuesday, Avalanche general manager Joe Sakic said moving Soderberg gives those forwards and others more opportunity. But it might also pave the way for a bigger free-agent splash. Either way, it seems like a good move to begin a big week for the Avs. Footnote. Also on Tuesday, the Avs confirmed it will not make qualifying offers to restricted free agents Sven Andrighetto, Spencer Martin, Mason Geertsen and Julian Nantel. Andrighetto, 26, played 133 games for the Avs since being acquired off waivers from Montreal in 2016-17. Martin, a goalie, Geertsen, a defenseman, and Nantel, a forward, were Avalanche draft picks with just three NHL games between them. Martin played three games for the Avs in 2016-17. The Avs’ depth chart at goaltending is now Philipp Grubauer, Francouz and Werner. They will have to sign a free agent or trade for a goalie to in the coming weeks.
