Eastern Oregon softball coach Anji Weissenfluh said she didn't mind that much when her team was picked to finish last in the Cascade Collegiate Conference, even if she wasn't sure why her team was picked to bring up the rear.

"We'll take it. We didn't have any pressure on us," she said.

Weissenfluh guided her young team to a winning record and a playoff berth. For her efforts, Weissenfluh was named this week the CCC Coach of the Year.

Weissenfluh said she was surprised by the honor, but figured she probably won because of the preseason poll.

In addition to Coach of the Year honors, the Eastern women garnered five all-league selections, the most ever for the Mountaineers softball program.

Four players made first team.

Shortstop Casi Reisenauer, a transfer from Big Bend Community College, made the team. She is batting .385 with two home runs.

Baker's Beth Hull was named. Hull, a first baseman, has been a real force at the plate, batting .367 with four home runs, 22 runs batted in and a .595 slugging percentage.

Catcher Adrienne Fullmer is batting .362 with nine doubles and 24 RBIs.

Senior Megan Brock, a center fielder from The Dalles, also made the team. She is batting .300.

Freshman second baseman Heather Tandberg made the honorable mention team.

Weissenfluh said she was especially excited for Brock because she has been with the program for four years, and this was her first selection onto the team.

Weissenfluh also pointed out that all the other selectees will be coming back for Eastern next season.

Eastern, currently the No. 4 seed in Region I, begins postseason play Thursday and Friday in Portland.
