Chloee Hunt, Evergreen
The graduate of Astoria High School is now a sophomore hitter at Evergreen State College. And she played a key role in helping the Geoducks score a five-game win over Oregon Tech Saturday. Oregon Tech won the first two sets, 25-14, 25-22, before Evergreen rallied behind Hunt in Game 3 to win the next three games, 25-21, 25-22, 15-10.
She had five kills and no errors on eight attempts in Game 3 alone, and finished with two solo blocks and four block assists. Hunt is Evergreen’s season leader in block assists (69) and solo blocks (eight).
Brandon McMullen, Ilwaco
The senior running back helped the Fishermen gain the Pacific 2B League’s No. 2 seed by rushing for 163 yards on just 15 carries (10.9 yards per run), in a 52-18 win over North Beach Friday. McMullen also threw a 38-yard touchdown pass to Tenyson Ramsey, and scored on a 20-yard run in the second quarter, as Ilwaco built a 39-0 halftime lead. Led by McMullen, Ilwaco had 353 yards rushing.
