Santa Clarita Christian's Noah Dent was named Heritage League Most Valuable Player.

 

Noah Dent and the Santa Clarita Christian baseball team were simply dominant in the Heritage League this season.

The Cardinals finished a perfect 9-0 in league play and made it to the CIF-Southern Section Division VII quarterfinals before falling to Riverside Prep.

Dent was a big part of the Cardinals’ success with an incredibly low 0.52 ERA and 64 strikeouts during his freshman campaign.

He also maintained a .441 batting average with 17 runs scored and 13 RBIs.

And now he can add another accomplishment to the list — Heritage League Most Valuable Player.

“At our awards banquet they announced Pitcher of the Year and I didn’t get it so I was kid of disappointed,” said Dent. “Then they said I was MVP and I was excited. I appreciate it a lot. It was a great year and I look at it as a building block for next year.”

Cardinals junior Clint Ross was named Pitcher of the Year and head coach Garrick Moss was named the Coach of the Year.

“Coach of the Year is more a reflection on how your team performed,” said Moss. “We were league champs last year then graduated three starters so we didn’t know how good we would be. But to have guys like Noah and Joe Sparks, our catcher who did an amazing job defensively for us, come in and play the way they did really helped us.”

The Cardinals placed three players on the All-Heritage League first team and two more on the second.

Colton Huckabone, Tommy Curry and Caleb Peavy were all first-teamers while Dayton Muxlow and Sparks were named to the second team.

“Colton was our RBI and power hitter and Tommy had a great on base percentage,” said Moss. “Caleb dominated defensively, did a great job hitting for us and closed a lot of games for us.”

Trinity junior Caleb Wilson, with is .549 batting average, 27 RBIs and 23 runs scored, was named the Offensive Player of the Year.

The Knights’ Nick Spinello was named to the first team and Eli Skorich was named to the second team.

In softball, SCCS sophomore Shelby Boswell and Trinity senior Jacey Massetto shared MVP honors.

Boswell controlled the Heritage League from the circle, breaking school records with 14 wins and posting a 1.27 ERA and leading the Cardinals to a perfect 8-0 record in league play.

“Being co-MVP added to a great season,” said Boswell. “Next year we have most of our team coming back, and I’ll be a captain, so I can take a little more charge of the team and hopefully keep our momentum going.”

SCCS placed four girls on the first team (Kimberly Curry, Aubrey Robinson, Hailey Aguilar, Lauren Lockart) and one on the second team (Jessica McCarty).

As the only senior on the team for Trinity, Massetto had a .529 batting average with 30 runs scored and 13 RBIs on the season.

Her teammate Lizzie MacAdams was named to the first team and Sierra Gonzales and Emily Atherton were named to the second team.

Trinity coaches Craig and Wendy Massetto were also named the Coaches of Year.
