SV, Tomales dominate All-NCL

After stellar seasons, both St. Vincent High School and Tomales dominated selections for the North Central League II All-League baseball team.

Each school had four first-team selections, while St. Vincent had the co-Most Valuable Player choices.

The league's co-MVP honors were awarded to Alex Neve and Dusty Oliver. Both players excelled at the plate and on the mound.

Neve, a junior infielder and pitcher, led his team with a .458 batting average, 33 hits and eight doubles. His eye-popping average helped anchor an impressive .348 team batting average for the Mustangs. On the mound, Neve compiled a 6-3 record with a 2.25 earned run average and also added a save.

Oliver, also a junior infielder and pitcher, was just as impressive. He hit .441 with a team-leading 33 RBIs and four triples. Oliver also added two home runs.

While his offensive numbers were MVP worthy, his pitching certainly earned him the honor.

Oliver was almost unhittable for St. Vincent. In 43 innings pitched, Oliver went 6-0 with a miniscule 0.65 ERA, and threw two complete-game shutouts. Batters wanted nothing to do with Oliver, hitting just .089 against him.

Joining their fellow Mustang teammates were first team selections senior center fielder Arman Yektaparast, sophomore utility man George Sammon, junior infielder Max Cowell and sophomore infielder Will Nevin.

Representing the North Coast Section Division 6 champion Tomales Braves on the first team were senior infielder Brennan Potts, junior catcher/pitcher Jacob Brady, senior infielder/pitcher Juan Avalos and senior pitcher/infielder Morgan Giammona.

Freshman catcher Dominic Pedersen was awarded honorable mention for St. Vincent.

On the season St. Vincent finished 19-5 and lost in the quarterfinals of the Division 5 NCS playoffs to Athenian, 6-4.

Tomales went 12-7 and won its first North Coast Section baseball championship in the school's history by defeating Point Arena, 5-3, in the Division 6 NCS championship game.
