Kam Coburn, Salem Hills (Sr.)

Kam Coburn’s steady play at the plate and on the mound this season is a big reason Salem Hills is the Region 9 front runner heading into the final stretch of the regular season.

Coburn is batting .413 this season with a team-leading 21 RBIs and eight doubles.

“Kam most importantly has provided solid leadership for us,” said Salem Hills coach Scott Haney. “Every team needs a Kam, he keeps our team intense, loose, fun, goofy, competitive, accountable, confident all at the right times.”

On the mound Coburn owns a 4-1 record this season with a 3.14 ERA and 24 strikeouts.

When he’s not on the mound, Coburn plays shortstop and his fielding percentage is .950.

Anne Wallace, Ridgeline (So.)

Ridgeline sits at 17-3 heading into the final busy stretch of the regular season, and sophomore standout Anne Wallace has been one of the catalysts to the success.

The catcher/infielder is batting .516 with 18 home runs and 46 RBIs. She’s closing in on the state record 22 home runs set by West’s Huntyr Ava back in in 2017.

“Anne is as good of a hitter as we have ever had go through our program. With that being said, she is a team-first athlete that will put a bunt down to win a game just as easily as she would hit a home run or throw someone out,” said Ridgeline coach Mike Anderson. “Her personality draws people to her. Anne is humble and works every day to get better. She is never satisfied with the current. She is a quiet leader that provides confidence and swag for our team.”

“Anne is the explanation point or big thump for us. She celebrates her teammates’ big moments more than her own. Our pitchers love to pitch to her because she takes their game up a level. Anne has a way of pulling the best out of herself and others at the most pressure moments of a game. Anne makes the game fun to coach.”

Naime Odeh, Fremont (Sr.)

One of the top attacking players in the state, Naime Odeh has been instrumental in leading Fremont to a 10-3 record so far this season.

“Naime is a team captain that leads the team through his play. He is near the top of the 6A stats in both goals scored and assists. He is able to play multiple positions on the field and has been man marked and even double teamed in multiple games this year,” said Fremont coach Darren Erwin.

In his career, Odeh has recorded 23 goals and 18 assists for Fremont.

Horoba has scored 38 goals and handed out 46 assists for a state-leading 84 points. He’s also recorded 31 ground balls.

“She is a key player on our team on all sides of the field. Her determination and leadership is exceptional. We are so proud of her,” said Lehi coach Taylor Siri.

Boys Track

Gabe Remy, West Jordan (Sr.)

West Jordan’s Gabe Remy posted the fastest 200-meter time in the entire state last weekend at the Davis Invitational, which is a testament to his outstanding work ethic.

He won the race with a time of 21.75, and he also won the 100-meter race with a time of 10.78, the third-best time in Utah this spring.

“The thing that has made Gabe such a successful athlete this track season are the goals he has made and the work he has put in to get there,” said West Jordan coach Taylor Hatch. “After suffering a season-ending injury at the very beginning of Football this year, Gabe had to decide how hard he was willing to work to get back to where he was. All of the hours he has put in during the offseason to take care of his body, getting stronger, and embracing the tough workouts are the reason he is so dominant this season. We have just caught a glimpse of what he is going to do the remainder of the season.”

Dakota Peyton, Hunter (Jr.)

One of the top sprinters in 6A enjoyed a great performance at the Davis High School Invitational last weekend.

“Dakota Peyton is dedicated athlete with tenacity. She comes to practice every day committed to compete; Dakota creates a goal for herself and figures out what she needs to do in order to achieve that goal,” said Hunter coach Amelia Gall.

Peyton placed fifth in the 400 meters last year with a time of 59.60, and she’s already shaved nearly four seconds off that time so far this spring.
