Seaside's Joel Dierickx was named Coach of the Year, and the Gulls' Pat Latham shared Player of the Year honors with Ben Greer of Rainier on the 2005 Cowapa All-League squad.

Dierickx took the Gulls from a 3-4 record to a league title, and his team will host a state playoff game Wednesday.

Latham, a senior catcher, is joined on the all-league squad by teammates Derek Spivey (senior infielder) and Will Beatty (sophomore outfielder).

Astoria placed a league-high eight players on the team, including senior pitcher Henry Brause, who missed the last three weeks of the season because of a broken leg. Sophomore Mathias Brause was one of four pitchers selected, along with Blok, Rainier's Ben Greer and his older brother Henry.

Other Fishermen named all-league were senior catcher Andrew MacLean, senior infielders Keenan Borgardt and Mitch Wirth, senior outfielder Sean Walker and senior outfielder Brent Culver.
