Alexa Blunt

Napa senior

The 2016-17 All-County Girls Basketball Player of the Year was so versatile that she chose volleyball – for which she was the 2016 All-County Defensive Player of the Year as a libero and played for the Evolve club for six years – as her collegiate sport, signing with CSU Monterey Bay in May. She had been a varsity starter in both sports since her sophomore year, along with soccer, which she had to forego this year when it was moved to winter. She averaged 9 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals in helping the basketball team make the playoffs by tying Vintage for third place and winning a coin flip.

Claire Dilly

Trinity Prep freshman

Dilly received All-County recognition in all three of her sports – Girls Basketball Player of the Year finalist, Volleyball Newcomer of the Year, and Baseball Newcomer of the Year finalist. The only female baseball player in the Sacramento Metropolitan Athletic League, she played second base and batted .285, getting three hits and four RBIs in one game. She ranked third on the team in on-base percentage and turned four double plays. She was one of the league’s top three volleyball players, helping the Crusaders reach the playoffs. In basketball, she was second on the squad in scoring and third in blocks.

Adrienne Dominguez

American Canyon junior

In her third year of water polo, Dominguez transitioned into a goalkeeper. “I admire her selfless attitude to help the team and put herself in a vulnerable position, and she did extremely well,” head coach Melissa Shimer said. With 140 saves, five assists and 22 steals, she was the only goalie to be voted to the All-Solano County Athletic Conference First Team. She then went out for her third wrestling season, placed third in the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section/Northern Section Girls Masters Championships, and finished in the top 16 at the state meet for the second year in a row, going 2-2 at 170 pounds.

Jane McLoughlin

Napa High sophomore

She began her three-sport year by helping the varsity cross country team qualify for the section meet, placing 74th overall at subs and 75th at sections. She also started for the varsity basketball team and was one of its most tenacious defenders. Finally, she excelled in track and field, especially in the 800 meters. She finished eighth at the Masters Meet in 2:20.34, third at the subsection meet in 2:17.39, and second at the Monticello Empire League Championships in 2:21.79. She was also second in the 400 at subs (1:00.09). It was her first track season, as she had to give up soccer because of its move to winter.

Rebecca Reynolds

Justin-Siena junior

It’s hard to believe Reynolds has a whole season left after breaking her own school scoring record – and leading the entire North Coast Section – with 149 goals, while adding 27 assists and 17 steals. She also made the All-NCS Division II Second Team. “Rebecca has proved to be one of the strongest and dominant centers in Northern California,” head coach Joey Doyle said of the All-Marin County Athletic League First Teamer, who finished third in league Most Valuable Player voting out of 13 teams. She has been playing for the high-caliber Davis Water Polo Club this summer to get ready for her senior season.
