Reedsport swept the top awards for volleyball in the Sunset Conference after running through the season with a perfect league record.

Gabby Clark was named player of the year and fellow senior Gabi Parker was named the outstanding setter. James Hixenbaugh was coach of the year.

Reedsport’s Essie Cardoso, who finished the season at libero, also was named to the first team by the league’s coaches.

The rest of the first team included Myrtle Point seniors Meghan Price and Elea Kenyon, Bandon freshman Kennedy Turner, Gold Beach senior Paris Newdall, Waldport senior Bree Smith and Toledo sophomore Kaycee Otis.

Sunset Conference football: Gold Beach quarterback Taylor Mather was named the offensive player of the year and Reedsport lineman Gage Billings was the defensive player of the year in voting by the league’s coaches.

The co-coaches of the year were Waldport’s Jack Walker and Myrtle Point’s Jimmy Farmer.

Mather was joined on the first team by Gold Beach teammates Yancy Rangel  and Trevor Walker (running backs), Brandon Seuser-Smith (wide receiver), Michael Dalton (center) and Chris Salazar and Luke Gilbert (offensive line) after the Panthers went unbeaten in the league season. Mather and Rangel also were named to the first team at linebacker and Walker at defensive back. Gold Beach’s Tyson Lilly was named to the first team on the defensive line.

Reedsport’s Billings was named to the first team at running back and joined on the first-team offense by Korde Parmenter at wide receiver and Griffin Lavigne on the line. Javier Analco was the first-team tight end and also both the kicker and punter.

Billings and teammate Dallas McGill were on the first team at defensive line, Parmenter and linebacker and Marc Chaney at defensive back.

Bandon, which finished third in the league standings and also was in the Class 2A playoffs, was represented on the first team only by defensive back Donavin Phommaphat.

Toledo offensive linemen Nate Cross and Dachotta Coxen were on the first team along with wide receiver Daimion Sharp. All three also were on the first team defense — Coxen on the line, Cross at linebacker and Sharp at defensive back.

The other first-team pick was running back Raven Dedijer-Small of Waldport.
