Yates was a First Team selection as a designated hitter, while sophomore second baseman Will Harris and senior outfielder William Worley were Honorable Mention selections.
All three were named First Team, All-Northwest Region and First Team, All-Western Valley District for the Comets, who finished the season with a 15-5 record and both the Western Valley District regular season and tournament championships.
