Five Hermiston Bulldogs were honored as first team all-Columbia River Conference baseball players, one of which was selected at two positions.

Senior Tommy Bevington not only starred at second base for the Dawgs, but was a lights-out reliever in the bullpen. He was a first-team infielder and pitcher.

In 16 appearances, Bevington picked up seven saves and a pair of wins on the hill with a 3.15 ERA. He struck out 22 batters in 26.2 innings of work. He was able to appear in so many games because of his efficiency. He averaged 14.7 pitches per inning.

In the infield, senior Jacob Almaguer and sophomore Camran Pollick were named to the first team. Almaguer was second on the team with 33 hits and led the club with 36 runs scored. He hit for a .384 batting average.

Pollick burst on the scene as an early-season replacement to hit .397 and smash three home runs.

Senior outfielder Jeremy Holden was named to the top team as well. When he was making a spectacular catch in the outfield to rob opponents of base hits, he was making them pay at the plate. Holden hit .410 with a team-leading 34 RBIs and eight doubles. His four home runs was tied for the team lead with first-team utility player, senior Justin Jones.

Jones hit a club-best .430 on the year with a team-leading 34 hits. He hit two triples to go with his four big flies on the year.

On the second team, Hermiston landed infielder Tate Gabriel and catcher Thomas Hamblin. Hamblin was named to the designated hitter position.
