Five Southern Oregon softball players rake in all-star honors

Five members of the Southern Oregon softball team have earned Cascade Conference postseason honors.

Rayna Okimoto, Katie Moy and Irene Barrantes were all named to the CCC all-star team. Jordyn Kurtz earned honorable mention honors and Melissa Corn earned a Cascade Conference Gold Glove award.

Okimoto, a sophomore, put her name all over the SOU record book with her performance. She led the team in batting and finished fourth in the conference with a .430 average, which ranks fourth best all-time at SOU. Okimoto also had 10 home runs (second best all-time), a .772 slugging percentage (second best all-time), had 88 total bases (third best all-time), a .496 on-base percentage (fourth best all-time) and 37 RBIs (fifth best all-time).

Barrantes burst onto the scene this year as she became a full-time starter. The sophomore set a school record with a .791 slugging percentage and finished with nine home runs, which ranks third best all-time. Barrantes finished second on the team with a .395 batting average, which was fifth best in the conference.

Moy was named to her third straight all-conference team. The junior batted .342 and had 12 doubles, which ranks fourth best for a single-season. Moy also set the SOU record for career doubles.

Kurtz battled back from injury to put up impressive numbers for the Raiders in the circle, especially in conference play.

The junior went 9-4 in conference play with a 1.97 ERA and 71 strikeouts.

Corn quickly established herself as one of the top defensive first basemen in the Region. Corn finished with 219 putouts and only three errors for a .987 fielding percentage.

The Raiders went 18-19 overall and 14-10 in conference play and just missed out on the conference tournament.
