All-Area Story: Courtney Gano batted an area-best .630 to go with 28 RBIs, 37 runs scored, 12 doubles, five triples and four home runs, but most coaches were more impressed with her defensive abilities at shortstop than with her gaudy offensive statistics, which is another reason Gano has been selected the San Gabriel Valley Tribune Player of the Year.
Coach of the year: This season Bishop Amat finished an impressive 25-4, won the consolation title at the Tournament of Champions in Arizona, won the Del Rey League title and advanced to the Division 3 semifinals, its best finish since advancing to the championship game in 2008. For his efforts, Mendez has been selected the San Gabriel Valley Tribune Coach of the Year.
