North’s Borraggine takes home top SOC baseball award

North Medford senior Cody Borraggine was named the Southern Oregon Conference MVP in baseball, it was announced this week, taking home the league’s top honor after a standout 2021 season on the mound and at the plate for the Black Tornado.

Borraggine was the lone area player to take home an individual award, with Roseburg sophomore right-hander Evan Corbin being named the SOC’s pitcher of the year. In softball, Roseburg swept the proceedings, with player of the year honors going to junior infielder Kami Gibson and junior Stephanie Blix being named the league’s top pitcher.

Borraggine, North’s leadoff hitter, recorded a .556 batting average in 17 games this spring. He struck out just four times in 73 plate appearances, recording 35 hits — seven of which were triples as well as a pair of doubles — to go with 18 RBIs and 26 runs scored. He was also 20-for-22 on stolen base attempts.

On the mound, Borraggine had a 5-0 record with a 1.02 ERA in 34 1/3 innings. He struck out 55 batters and walked just 12, holding opponents to a .188 batting average.

North Medford’s Chris Campbell was named the SOC’s softball coach of the year after leading the Black Tornado to a 15-3 record and a league tournament title. Roseburg’s Troy Thompson was named coach of the year in baseball.
