by: John Brewington Leslie Hancock, first team all-state

The Tribe's Leslie Hancock led a contingent of four Scappoose players, all infielders, with 4A all-state honors in softball.

Hancock, the Cowapa League Player of the Year, was the only member of the team to be selected for the first team. As a shortstop she had a .952 fielding average with just three errors on the season. She had a .467 season-long batting average with eight homers, 17 doubles, and 39 RBIs.

Three Scappoose players-pitcher Cassie Foltz, third baseman Cassie Galey, and second baseman Cassidy Hoglund-received honorable mention.

Only first-team all-league players are eligible for the state team. All the Cowapa League first team received some all-state notice. League champion Banks had three players on the first team, two outfielders and a utility player. Third-place Yamhill-Carlton didn't have a first team player, but did have three second team players, Cowapa League Pitcher of the Year, Molly Smith, a catcher and an infielder.
