Softball: SanFranPreps.com All-City Team

By Jeremy Balan

Anyone who watched Lowell High School’s Chloe Roddy play in the Academic Athletic Association championship game saw just how much she can impact a softball game.

The senior had a pair of two-run home runs and five RBIs in an 11-1 rout over rival Washington to pick up the AAA title, but it was her body of work, encompassing the whole season, that earned her the honor of SanFranPreps.com Player of the Year.

Baseball: Giants select Jewish Community’s Sosnick in MLB Draft

By Jeremy Balan

Only two players were selected in this year’s Major League Baseball draft with San Francisco high school ties.

The first, former Washington High School and Sonoma State star O’Koyea Dickson, was a lock, but the second came from maybe the most unlikely source — Jewish Community High School of the Bay.

The Giants selected Jewish Community senior Benny Sosnick in the 49th round (1,497th overall) on Wednesday, marking one of the most noteworthy moments in the school’s 10-year history. Sosnick is the first player from Jewish Community ever taken in the draft.

Baseball: Washington grad Dickson selected by Dodgers in MLB Draft

By Bonta Hill

Growing up a Giants fan, former Academic Athletic Association baseball star O’Koyea Dickson’s dream of getting drafted to a Major League Baseball team came true.

Ironically, Dickson was drafted by the team he grew up to hate — the Los Angeles Dodgers.

A graduate of Washington High School in 2008, Dickson was drafted in the 12th round (374th overall) by the Dodgers on Tuesday.
