Blue Mountain Community College sophomores Rayne Spencer and Savanna Zarate were two of the players honored when the NWAC released its softball regional all-star lists.
The Timberwolves were each voted to the second team by the East Region coaches, Zarate at infield and Spencer at catcher.
Both players had the ability to change a game with a single swing of the bat, and their power hitting helped keep the T-Wolves in the playoff hunt up to the last day of the regular season.
Spencer, from Pendleton, led the team with a .398 batting average in 28 league games, and also led the T-Wolves with 33 hits, 30 RBIs, 25 runs, 10 home runs, eight doubles and one triple.
Zarate, from Salem, was second in average (.283), hits (31), RBIs (25), home runs (7) and walks (11).
They were two of BMCC’s most important defenders as well.
Spencer only committed one error behind the plate for a .983 fielding percentage and threw out six runners on the base paths.
Zarate manned the hot corner at third base and was second among infielders with 42 defensive assists while holding a .928 fielding percentage.
Spokane, which won the region title before going on to win the NWAC Tournament, earned the Pitcher of the Year (sophomore Lindsie Scholwinski) and Coach of the Year (Janet Skaife). Scholwinski went 18-0 in league play with 15 complete games, a 0.76 ERA and 168 strikeouts.
East Region MVP went to Wenatchee Valley shortstop Iris Rodriguez. The sophomore batted for a .571 average with 56 hits, 62 RBIs, 44 runs, 18 doubles and seven home runs. She had a .933 fielding percentage with 64 assists.
