11 Basin softball players named all-state

Print Article

Connor Vanderweyst/Columbia Basin Herald Warden senior Ashlyn Yamane was voted first team all-state as an infielder.

Almira/Coulee-Hartline defended its Class 1B state championship in the spring and its roster was rewarded in the summer.

Sarah Bradshaw, the ace pitcher of the state champion Warriors, was named the 1B State Player of the Year by the Washington State Softball Coaches Association. Bradshaw was one of five Warrior players with all-state distinction and Graham Grindy was the Coach of the Year.

Bradshaw was the first-team pitcher; Gabi Isaak and Makenna Oliver were selected to the first team for infield and outfield, respectively. Kendel Correia was an honorable mention catcher and Mikayala Rushton was an honorable mention infielder.

For Class 4A, Moses Lake third baseman Madi Olson was all-state honorable mention. Olson finished her season with a .427 average, six doubles and one home run.

“Madi is really a joy to coach — great attitude, loves to compete, embraces working hard to get better,” Moses Lake head coach Mike Hofheins said. “Also takes pleasure in seeing her teammates succeed. Very unselfish.”

Central Washington Athletic Conference Player of the Year Rylee Peters added all-state honorable mention to her list of accolades. The Ephrata sophomore helped the Tigers return to the 2A state tournament in 2019. Peters led the Tigers with over 74 innings pitcher with a 1.59 earned run average.

Othello’s Maya Valdez was an all-state honorable mention utility player.

Warden ended its season with a third-place trophy at the 1A state tournament. The Cougars’ Ashlyn Yamane and Jocelyn Chagoya were first team infielders and Bailey Whitney was an honorable mention infielder.

“The three of us were the only ones who received first team all-league for Warden softball this year, so it really shows how we’re compared to other girls and teams across the state who are just as good or better,” Yamane said. “Last year I got honorable mention and it’s exciting to know I got first team this year along with my teammates. It’s sad leaving and playing ball without any of them next year, but I want to use as much momentum from this year to help me continue to get and be better for college.”
