The two selected as this year’s baseball and softball Most Valuable Players for District 2-4A came as a surprise to absolutely no one.
Demi Madalena of Bernalillo and Jared Mang of Los Alamos were hands down the two dominant forces on the diamond in 2-4A this season.
The picks for the top players in the district were released last week.
Los Alamos’ baseball team picked up four first-team spots, along with Mang’s MVP nod, and a second team selection this year.
For softball, Los Alamos also earned four first-team selections.
Mang, for his part, has been the district’s leading hitter since his first 2-4A game as an eighth grader. This year, Mang led Los Alamos to its sixth consecutive district title and a perfect 12-0 record against district competition.
It was Mang’s third consecutive MVP season — a very good case could’ve been make for Mang winning as an eighth grader as well, but his age was likely a factor in his not winning, although he was a first-team selection that season as well.
In 2014, Mang hit a blistering .605 at the plate, had a pair of home runs and knocked in 44 runs in 28 games. On the mound, he went 8-2 and was credited with one save.
