The Mission Trail Athletic League’s Coastal Division released its all-league selections for boys basketball, and a handful of Santa Cruz County players were on it, including Pacific Collegiate School senior guard Alex Beleutz and Kirby senior center Caleb Bassi.
Not surprisingly, Oakwood sophomore guard Youssef Eshra won the MVP award for a second year in a row, while Anzar’s Tracy Carpenter was named Coach of the Year. The Sportsmanship Award was given to York senior Kevin Ng.
The MTAL-C doesn’t exactly differentiate between a first- and second-team. Instead, there are 10 players listed on the All-League Team, including Eshra, and another 12 players given honorable mention.
PCS juniors Chris Kaspar and David Rice, and Kirby’s David Kutner and Nathan Allen, received honorable mention.
