The Black Bears are proud to welcome a pair of talented players from in state!

Nick Hovland out of the University of Washington is a skilled athlete who can play a variety of positions and will help pace the Black Bears offense with a solid bat.

Jackson Cox, a local product from Toutle Lake High School and Oregon Ducks commit, is a premier right handed pitcher who consistently throws in the mid to uppers 90’s. The fireballer is ranked by Perfect Game USA as a 10/10 player who is a very high end draft prospect for Major League Baseball.

We are thrilled to have both of these young men, so please show them some Cowlitz County love!
