In two of the state's biggest postseason summer events for high school athletes, several Portland players stood out.
The 70th North vs. South all-star football game — which began as the Shrine Game and now is the Les Schwab Tire Bowls — took place June 24 at Hillsboro Stadium.
And the Daimier Oregon All-Star Baseball Series, initially known as the State-Metro All-Star Series, returned to Goss Stadium in Corvallis.
In football, the South won, 10-7.
In baseball, the South won 2 games to 1. The South dropped the opener, 11-5, then won 9-5 and 12-9.
Jefferson High's Terrell "Rayray" West was named the North's Back of the Game in football. He made eight tackles, six solo.
The North finished with 229 yards of offense; the South had 228. Each team had two turnovers in 90-degree-plus temperatures.
At Oregon State, Grant's Sawyer Medlin was voted the North's Most Oustanding Pitcher.
Two Lincoln players also contributed significantly for the North. Brandon Leitgeb was 3 for 9 with a double and four RBIs in the three games. Baxter Halligan threw two innings of shutout relief in Sunday's first game. Halligan held the South to one hit and left with a 5-2 lead.
