Ace Sutton Leads Bearcats in PAL Ocean Awards

Junior right-hander named co-pitcher of year; Jacobs, Titus and Cohen all land first-team honors.

San Mateo’s Bailey Sutton is getting used to collecting awards. The Bearcat junior was named a Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division co-pitcher of the year on Tuesday, a year after she won the honor outright.

Woodside senior southpaw Ashley Miller shares the award with Sutton, a right-hander.

Sutton, who led San Mateo to the PAL Ocean championship at 9-1, compiled a 14-4 overall record and batted a team-high .457 during the regular season.

San Mateo junior shortstop Karyn Jacobs, junior second baseman Tayler Titus and senior catcher Francie Cohen all earned All-PAL Ocean first-team honors. Seniors Elisa Pineda and Megan Hughes and junior Shannon Wischer landed second-team recognition.

Those players now look to spark the Bearcats to postseason glory. San Mateo, which earned the No. 11 seed in the Central Coast Section Division II playoffs, visits sixth-seeded Aptos today at 4 p.m. in a first-round game.
