Most Valuable Player
Mariah Davis, Madera
Stats: .452 BA, .530 OBP, 47 runs, 52 hits, 3 2B, 22 SB overall. .500 BA, .585 OBP, 16 R, 16 H, 12 SB in County/Metro Athletic Conference.
Resume: The junior second baseman was named last year’s Most Valuable Player after a record-breaking season. She was even better this year, breaking or tying six school records (batting average, hits and runs scored in a season and stolen bases and runs scored in a career). Davis was named the CMAC co-Most Valuable Player this season. She already has tied the school record for most runs in a career with 103 (Jocelynn Medina) and broke the school’s stolen base record, the oldest offensive record in the books, with one more year still left to play. She could be the first Madera Coyote in school history to finish a career with a batting average over .400. Davis set the table for the Coyote offense. She reached base in more than half of her plate appearances, stole a school record 22 bases and scored 35 percent of the time she went to the plate. And she still has one more year. Davis also lowered her strikeout total from 11 to 8 and increased her walk total from 11 to 17.

Resume: Shevenell is a two-time All-Madera Tribune Pitcher of the Year. She re-invented herself this year after a record-breaking season last year.

She is second all-time in Liberty history in ERA, wins, innings pitched and strikeouts in a career to Kayla Barber. She finishes her career with 476 strikeouts in 407 1/3 innings pitched. In addition, she helped herself with the bat, hitting .400 with 14 RBIs and eight doubles. Shevenell was the NSL Most Valuable Pitcher...
