There was a definite Mid-Columbia flavor to the All-State teams released Wednesday for high school baseball, softball and soccer.
Area schools placed 63 athletes on the lists, including 27 first-teamers, two players of the year and one coach of the year.
The top players are Walla Walla pitcher and first baseman Hope Klicker (4A softball) and Wahluke forward Salvador Jimenez (1A boys soccer). Arthur deVictoria was named the 1A boys soccer coach of the year after leading Wahluke to the state title.
It was another big year for Pasco boys soccer, which placed four players on the 4A team. Defender Lucas Cash and keeper Emmanuel Martinez were first-team picks, midfielder Martin Ramirez a second-teamer and forward Richard Renteria an honorable mention.
Never miss a local story.
Forward B.G. Guzman capped his record career at Othello with a first-team 2A selection. Jimenez and deVictoria were joined on the 1A first team by Wahluke teammates Pedro Acevedo in the midfield and Luis Rivera at defender.
Connell's Jonathon Rodriguez (midfielder) and Brian Garcia (defender) also were first-team picks.
