Though Santa Clarita Christian School baseball had the more successful season, it was Trinity Classical Academy baseball that gathered in the biggest collection of awards within its league.

Trinity all-around player Dakota Prochnow was named Omega League Most Valuable Player for his services as both a pitcher and position player.

Prochnow led his team in every major hitting category with a .608 average, 54 RBIs, 45 hits and 48 runs.

He was also stellar on the mound, finishing the season with a 1.42 ERA and a 6-4 record in 54 1/3 innings pitched.

It was just one of several honors gained by both Trinity and SCCS athletes this spring.

In addition to Prochnow, Trinity had three baseball players voted to the All-Omega League first team and one on the second team.

The school also had three softball players make the Omega first team and one make the second team.

For the Cardinals, two baseball players were voted All-Heritage League first-teamers and three were placed on the second team, while four SCCS softball players garnered All-Coastal League nods.

Ryan Fullarton and Davis Muxlow were the two Heritage League first-teamers representing SCCS baseball.

Fullarton was the team’s ace, going 6-3 on the year with a 1.79 ERA while also hitting a team-best .491.

Muxlow was mostly known for his hitting abilities, going .393 with 17 RBIs at the plate. But he also contributed heavily with his arm, collecting a 3.66 ERA in 36 1/3 innings pitched.

SCCS’s Brandt Anderson, Clint Ross and Ryan O’Neil were named to the league’s second team.

Together, the group helped lead the Cardinals to a 16-7 season and the deepest playoff run for the team since 2004 by advancing to the CIF-Southern Section Division VII quarterfinals.

For Trinity baseball, it was Chris Buchanan, Caleb Wilson and Eli Skorich collecting first-team honors in the Omega League.

As a hitter, Buchanan had a .437 average with 35 runs and 31 hits and as a pitcher, he had a 1.43 ERA and an 8-2 record in 54 innings of work.

The junior also recorded the school’s first no-hitter on March 6 against Summit View High.

Skorich batted .400 with 32 RBIs and 28 runs, while Wilson finished .418 with 15 RBIs and 26 runs at the plate.

Nick Spinello was the lone second-teamer for the Knights’ baseball.

Trinity softball also had three All-Omega first-team players on the softball team — Kaeli Massetto, Jacey Massetto and Emily Kim.

Taylor Totten got the second-team nod.

Kaeli led the team with a .574 batting average and she hit 11 of the team’s 16 total home runs.

Her younger sister Jacey hit .417 and Kim finished .403 at the plate while also serving as the team’s primary pitcher.

Heather McCain and Ali Acosta were the only All-Coastal League first-team honorees for SCCS softball.

McCain took on the majority of the team’s pitching duties while hitting .433 with seven RBIs and 16 runs.

Acosta finished the year at .359 with 23 runs and 14 hits.

Kimberly Curry and Aubrey Robinson rounded out the honors for SCCS softball by making the All-Coastal League second-team list.
