Enumclaw High School junior Quinn Breidenbach was named the 2014-15 Gatorade Washington Softball Player of the Year.
It comes after Breidenbach, committed to the University of Massachusetts, also earned The News Tribune’s All-Area Softball Player of the Year honor. She led the Hornets back to the 3A state tournament and finished with a record of 15-3 and a 0.74 ERA with 187 strikeouts in 104 innings. She also pitched one perfect game.
"Quinn most certainly drives the Hornets’ success both in the circle and at the plate," Lakes coach Mike Hawkins said in a press release. "She always wants to be the one with the ball in the circle."
Richland’s Kayla Andrews won last year’s award. Former Auburn Riverside standout Amanda Fitzsimmons is the last area player to win the honor (2009).
Union’s Cody Hawken was named the 2014-15 Gatorade Washington Baseball Player of the Year. Hawken batted .465 with seven home runs and 30 RBIs for the Titans at the time he was selected. Union fell to Kentwood in the first round of the 4A regional round of the state baseball tournament.
That comes after former Puyallup pitcher Luke Heimlich won it last year and former Kentwood catcher Reese McGuire won two years ago.
