Last year’s Cowapa League co-Player of the Year received this year’s award all to himself, as Seaside senior Jackson Januik was selected as the boys basketball MVP for the 2016-17 season.
Januik — also a leading candidate for the 4A state Player of the Year award — was one of five Seaside players on the all-league team, as the league co-champion Gulls had all five starters on the all-league squad, as did Valley Catholic.
Seaside’s Bill Westerholm and Valley Catholic’s Joel Sobotka shared the annual co-Coach of the Year honor.
Januik was joined on the first-team by senior teammates Attikin Babb and Hunter Thompson, and sophomore Chase Januik. Sophomore Payton Westerholm was selected honorable mention.
Astoria senior Olaf Englund was named to the first team, and Fisherman senior Ryan Palek was honorable mention.
