The North Tahoe and Truckee baseball teams landed a healthy handful of players on the Mount Rose All-League baseball teams, led by Colin Spencer’s Division III MVP.
The awards were voted on by coaches in the mixed-division Mount Rose League, which includes Division I-A and Division III schools around the lake (plus Sparks). Each division honored its own separate first team, while the leagues combined the second teams and honorable mention.
Spencer was voted MVP of the Mount Rose League’s Division III while his coach, Matt Drury, was voted Coach of the Year after leading the Lakers into the regional postseason for the second consecutive year.
Truckee senior catcher Jackson Rohlf was voted to the Division I-A first team along with Truckee senior shortstop Aaron Pado, senior center fielder Andy McKechnie, senior left fielder Chris Towle and senior pitcher Erik Holmer.
Jared Longland of Sparks was named MVP of the Division I-A.
Aside from Spencer, five Lakers were voted to the Division III first team. They include junior second baseman Alex Tyler, junior outfielder Shane Christian, sophomore outfielder Mitchell Myers, senior catcher Baird Bishop (who received the honor as an outfielder), and junior pitcher Wildon DesLauriers (also the Lakers’ shortstop).
Truckee’s Thor Retzlaff and Riley Guiragossian were voted to the combined second team, while teammate Travis Ferre received honorable mention recognition. For the Lakers, Lucas Likes and Miles Johanson received honorable mention.
Neither the Wolverines nor the Lakers received much love in All-State voting.
Pado was named to the All-State first team, and was the only Truckee player to receive All-State recognition. Blair Naegle of state champion Faith Lutheran was Coach of the Year.
Two North Tahoe players were honored on the Division III All-State squad, Spencer and Bishop, although both were placed on the second team.
State champion Yerington, meanwhile, landed the state co-MVP, Corbin Cliften, and five first-team selections (eight total). Battle Mountain, which North Tahoe defeated twice in three meetings, had three players on the first team and six total. Needles had seven players on All-State.
Nevertheless, Spencer’s gaudy numbers spoke volumes, and were certainly worthy of first-team designation. The Lakers’ No. 1 starter and workhorse finished the season with an 8-2 record and a 1.88 ERA, with both losses coming against Division I-A teams (Truckee and Sparks). He struck out 125 batters in 67 innings, which, according to the NIAA Record Book, ranks fifth all time in Nevada. At the plate, he hit a cool .500 and slugged .734.
