SOUTHERN OREGON--- The SOU Raiders spent a majority of the 2021 sweeping series with opponents through the Cascade Collegiate Conference. 

Now, the Raiders have also swept post-season awards within the conference. 

SOU head coach Jessica Pistole earned the Coach of the Year after leading SOU to the best conference record in Cascade history. This is Pistole's fourth time taking the award during her six seasons with SOU. 

Lauren Quirke won the Player of the Year. Quirke has made a name for herself with her all-around play. In the circle, Quirke was third in the CCC in wins (14-2). However, it seems like she leads every other category possible. She led the conference in batting average (.482), slugging percentage (.787), on-base percentage (.517), hits (79), and RBIs (59).

Gabby Sandoval won the Pitcher of the Year. Sandoval finished her season at 25-1 and an ERA of just 1.28. Sandoval's endurance and dominance throughout a complete game certainly helped her win the award. She pitched 11 shoutouts and 23 complete games in 2021. 

Riley Donovan snagged the Newcomer of the Year. As a junior, Donovan hit .456, had six home runs, hit 20 doubles, and added three triples. All of that brought in 57 runs on the season. 

Southern Oregon had all three of those players along with Rylan Austin, Hannah Shimek, and Allie Stines make the All-CCC first team. 

Tayler Walker and Katrina Winterburn made the second team.

Olivia Mackey was an honorable mention. 

SOU also saw Gold Gloves for Stines, Walker, Mackey, and Avery Morehead-Hutsell.

The Oregon Tech Owls also had seven players recognized by the conference. 

Tech's Sarah Abramson, McKenna Armantrout, Aubrie Businger, Kaila Mick, and McKenzie Staub all made the All-CCC first team. 

Kennedy Jantzi made the second team. 

Krista Ward as honorable mention. 

A trio of Staub, Armantrout, and Businger earned Gold Glove honors.
