It appears that more awards are in order.

College of the Canyons right fielder Trevor Bloom, pitcher Trevor McDonald and third baseman Matt Warr have all added to their postseason honors.

Bloom was named a Southern California All-American after hitting .378 with nine home runs, 55 RBIs and 45 runs scored this season, having already been named the Western State Conference South Division Player of the Year and a first-team all-conference selection.

McDonald, a Valencia graduate and the 2009 WSC Pitcher of the Year, garnered All-Southern California recognition for his 9-0 record, 3.80 ERA and 42 strikeouts. Canyon graduate Matt Warr was also an All-Southern California selection.

Warr finished 2009 with a .315 average, eight home runs, 41 RBIs and 35 runs scored as the Cougars won their second straight WSC title.

Both McDonald and Warr had already earned spots on the All-conference first team.


More honors

The Master’s College has released its athletes of the year.

Robyn Estrada, a freshman forward on the Mustangs women’s soccer team, and Jeff Jackson, a junior distance runner, earned the honors for female and male athlete of the year, respectively.

Estrada’s 2009 campaign earned her All-Golden State Athletic Conference recognition and a spot on the National Christian College Athletic Association All-American first team after scoring 11 goals with six assists. Her play was a driving force for the Mustangs, who lost to Olivet Nazarene 2-1 in the national title game. In the national tournament, Estrada was named the Offensive Most Valuable Player to go along with a spot on the all-tournament team.

Meanwhile, Jackson set a school record in the 8,000-meter run with a time of 24 minutes, 58 seconds, and was named an All-GSAC runner. He was also the school’s first-ever NAIA All-American in cross country after his 18th-place finish in November’s NAIA Men’s Cross Country National Championship.

Come spring, Jackson became a cornerstone for TMC’s track and field program in its first year of existence, qualifying for the state meet in the 5,000, 10,000 and the marathon. He went on to finish seventh in the 5,000 (14:55.77) and seventh in the 10,000 (31:12.25) at the NAIA Men’s and Women’s Outdoor Track and Field Championship.
