Estancia High senior Marc DeFrenza took both of the top two awards for Orange Coast League baseball this year, as he was named Orange Coast League Most Valuable Player as well as Pitcher of the Year.
DeFrenza was joined on the all-league first-team by Estancia senior Ryan Boselo and junior Victor Trujillo, as well as Costa Mesa seniors Ryan Boulger and Jesse Fox and junior P.J. Maloney.
DeFrenza helped lead the Eagles (17-11, 9-3 in league) to their first league title since 1991. He and Boselo combined on a 1-0 shutout in the clincher over Calvary Chapel on May 13.
For the year, DeFrenza was 9-3 with a 1.85 earned-run average. He struck out 85 in his 75 2/3 innings and opponents hit just .214 against him. He had five complete games — four of those shutouts — as he led Estancia to the playoffs for the first time in 16 years.
