Cal-Hi Sports released its annual all-state softball and baseball teams Wednesday and the Santa Clarita Valley was well represented as five Foothill League players earned first- and second-team honors.

A trio of softball players — Saugus’ Maddy Jelenicki, Valencia’s Kristina Brackpool and West Ranch’s Kylie Sorenson — made the Cal-Hi teams, marking the second year in a row that three girls were named all-state.

Baseball players Chad Bible (Valencia) and Jagger Rusconi (West Ranch) made the All-State Underclass Team.

Catcher Jelenicki was one of two catchers honored on the First-Team All-Underclass list. She was also named All-State Second Team, meaning that she is one of the top seven catchers in the state.

The UCLA-bound Jelenicki was the top hitter in the Foothill League. The junior led the Foothill League with a .576 batting average, 71 points above the second-best hitter, and hit a league high nine home runs and knocked in 31 runs.

Penn State-commit Brackpool was named All-State Second Team Infield, making her one of 10 players chosen for this list.

Brackpool was the top offensive weapon for the Vikings, leading the team six home runs, eight doubles and a .418 batting average. She also had 22 RBIs.

Sorenson continued to add to her award-filled offseason, being named to the Second-Team Multi-Purpose squad.

Earlier this year, the senior was named The Signal’s All-Santa Clarita Valley Player of the Year and became the first player to win Foothill League Player of the Year honors in back-to-back years since 2008.

The Stanford-bound shortstop hit .433 while leading the team with eight home runs and 27 RBIs.

Sophomore Rusconi was named to his second straight First-Team All-Underclass squad.

The shortstop hit .420 for the Wildcats with three home runs and 17 RBIs. He also finished the season with 11 stolen bases.

Valencia junior Bible was named Second-Team All-Underclass for baseball.

Bible was a formidable offensive player for the Vikings in his first Foothill League season.

Bible batted .365 with 19 RBIs and a .671 slugging percentage. He was the Foothill League leader in home runs, hitting five over the course of the season.
