Saugus catcher Maddy Jelenicki is one of three Foothill League softball players named to the All CIF-SS Division I team.

Three Foothill League softball teams saw their best players honored on Thursday with the release of the All CIF-Southern Section Division I team, while four local baseball players were named to Division VII teams and two made it in Division I.

No local athletes were named to the All-CIF boys volleyball team, also released this week.

Kylie Sorenson, captain of the Foothill League softball champion West Ranch Wildcats, was named to the Division I first team after batting .433 with team-highs of eight home runs, 15 doubles and 27 RBIs from the leadoff spot.

“She deserves it. She’s a leader. She was a pleasure to coach for all these years,” said West Ranch head coach Bob Shults. “She put West Ranch on a different level.”

Valencia, which finished in a tie for second place this season with Saugus, saw first baseman Kristina Brackpool make the first team, with the Centurions represented by catcher Maddy Jelenicki.

“Huge — we don’t have her, we’re not where we were. She was an integral part of the team, not only a leader on the team, but she led the team offensively and defensively,” said Valencia head coach Donna Lee of Brackpool.

In baseball, no Foothill League players were named to the CIF-SS Division I first team, but Canyon senior Max Weinstein and West Ranch sophomore Jagger Rusconi were named to the second team.

Weinstein, the Foothill League’s Player of the Year, hit .438 with 13 RBIs this season while going 5-5 on the mound with a 2.49 ERA in 12 starts.

Rusconi, who helped West Ranch split the Foothill League title with Canyon, hit .420 with 17 RBIs and three home runs.

In CIF-SS Division VII, Trinity’s Dakota Prochnow, Santa Clarita Christian’s Davis Muxlow and Albert Einstein Academy’s Sam Fields were named to the first team.

Prochnow, who was the All-CIF Division II 8-man Player of the Year earlier this year, led Trinity with a .481 batting average and hit 28 RBIs with three triples and two home runs.

Muxlow helped SCCS to the Heritage League title this season, batting .444 with 16 RBIs. On the mound, the senior was 6-5 with a 2.17 ERA with 47 strikeouts to 16 walks.

Fields, a junior pitcher and shortstop for AEA, hit .537 with 29 RBIs and a home run. He was dominant on the base paths, as well, stealing 27 bases in 34 attempts. On the mound, he had a 4.88 ERA in five starts and finished the year with a 5-1 record.

The second team featured AEA’s Louie Mangilit.
