After winning this year’s CIF-Southern Section Division 4 championship, Santa Monica’s softball team has earned a number of honors.
Junior pitcher Whitney Jones was named CIF-Southern Section Division 4 Player of the Year and Debbie Skaggs was named Coach of the Year.
Also making the list was Annie Quine, who was also named Ocean League Player of the Year.
“It was an awesome season,” Skaggs said. “I didn’t think we could get there. I knew we had talent to get there, but sometimes you just never know.”
The first team of the All-Ocean League lineup is filled with Vikings.
Jones, Ashley Rakujlic, Kenedee Jamerson and Frankie Golick all made the cut.
The second team features Carly Condon and Alexis Carter.
“These girls knew they had the ability,” Skaggs said. “We pulled it all together at the right time.”
