Baseball NPSL All-League teams announced

Players from all four Federal Way high schools selected for top league honors.

The 4A North Puget Sound League Olympic Division announced the all-league team honors for boys baseball, proving athletes from Federal Way dominate more than just the field.

Players from all four Federal Way high schools earned spots on the NPSL All-League teams, as well as Federal Way Eagles baseball head coach Arlo Evasick.

Baseball is just as much of a team sport to Evasick as it is for his athletes.

“I’ve said this for four straight years — if I don’t have good players, this award never happens,” Evasick said. “It’s more of a team award. This team makes it easy.”

Coach of the Year

Federal Way High School head coach Arlo Evasick was selected as co-Coach of the Year along with Enumclaw’s Eric Fiedler.
