Quincy Castillo’s senior season resume continues to grow.

The Riverside Pirates’ midfielder played a key role in their success this season, as the Pirates team that obliterated the opposition on their way to a perfect 17-0-1 season and a 3A/2A/1A state championship. He also was named district Player of the Year and earned first team honors, and now adds first team all-state and state Player of the Year honors as well.

Castillo is one of five Pirates to make the all-state team, which was voted on by the league’s coaches, with three players making the first team and two on second team. He is joined by fellow seniors Kevin Madrigal and Jose Peralta on the 11-man first team, while Miseal Madrigal and Luis Olvera were voted to second team.

And Riverside’s sixth-year head coach Francisco Velasco took home Coach of the Year honors, while Catlin Gabel’s Fritz Frerichs was voted Goalkeeper of the Year.

Only one Pirate made the 3A/2A/1A girls all-state list, which was senior Skylar Wightman on first team. She piled up 11 goals and 14 assists for the Pirates, who finished 8-3-2 overall and won the district before getting knocked out in the first round of the state playoffs.

A few other local soccer stars earned all-state recognition this fall as well. In Class 4A, Mac-Hi’s Kobee Carillo was a first team all-state selection, helping his Pioneers. And in Class 5A, Pendleton junior Denisa Senkerikova earned first team honors and on the boys side Hermiston’s Miguel Hoyos and Noe Silva earned second team honors.
