She owned a .980 fielding percentage and threw out 11 of 14 base runners attempting to steal. She also picked off another six runners.

Foster’s battery mate Chelsea Arlington also received honorable mention. Arlington went 14-6 with a 4.30 ERA in the circle for Boyd. At the plate, she hit .443 with three home runs and 57 RBIs.

Northwest outfielder Tuesday Dermargosian earned honorable mention for the 5A squad. The speedy outfielder batted .567 and scored 23 runs.
