McCormack went 21-14 with a 2.33 ERA, the second-best mark in the last 15 years for a CdM pitcher with at least 100 innings. His 139 strikeouts are No. 2.
No. 1 is where McCormack, a first-team all-league selection, wanted the Sea Kings to finish in league. They placed third and reached the Division 3 playoffs after they missed the postseason the previous season.
The ride ended in the first round. You cannot fault McCormack for his effort. He lasted 8 2/3 innings and allowed one earned run before CdM lost, 4-3, in extra innings at Lancaster.
The last two games McCormack represented CdM came against some of the best players in Orange County. He started on the mound in the Kiwanis Club of Greater Anaheim's 45th annual Orange County North-South All-Star Game for seniors and in the Ryan Lemmon Senior Showcase game between the Pacific Coast League and Freeway League.
In both games, McCormack's teams prevailed. He wrapped up his high school career a winner.
The following are the rest of the players on this year's Dream Team:
Senior center fielder covered a lot of ground for the Eagles. Trancoso earned All-CIF Southern Section Division 4 and first-team All-Orange Coast League honors, and played in the Kiwanis Club of Greater Anaheim's 45th annual Orange County North-South All-Star Game for seniors. He led the area with a .448 batting average and a .525 on-base percentage. He finished with 17 runs batted in, nine doubles, one triple, 25 runs, 13 for 13 in stolen-base attempts and a .575 slugging percentage. Coach Nate Goellrich said Trancoso's 39 hits during the season rank second all-time at Estancia. Trancoso is a two-time Dream Team pick.
