The tradition continues for Seaside boys soccer. For the fourth year in a row, the best player in the Cowapa League wears a Seaside uniform.

Senior defender/midfielder Irving Contreras was selected as the league’s Player of the Year for the Cowapa’s all-league team, as voted on by the league’s five coaches.

Former Gull Colton Carter was the league’s Player of the Year in 2015, ’16 and ’17.

Ryan Hiestand of Banks was named Goalkeeper of the Year, and Valley Catholic’s Mike Chertude was Coach of the Year, after leading the Valiants to the league title.

Seaside and Valley Catholic tied for most all-league selections (seven), with both teams placing five on the first team.

In addition to Contreras, other Gulls on the first team included seniors Parker Conrad and Chase Januik, junior Natanael Conrad and sophomore Dodger Holmstedt.

Senior Bryce DeWinter and freshman Luke Verley were named honorable mention.

Astoria had five players selected all-league: senior Porter Whitsett, junior David Bermudez and sophomore goalkeeper Tony Tumbarello on the first team, and senior Jonathan Jimenez and junior Brooks Fromwiller honorable mention.
