PA’s Hall is Skagit Valley College Athlete of the Year

MOUNT VERNON — Port Angeles product Wyatt Hall was named Skagit Valley College Athlete of the Year on Thursday.

Hall is a 2021 Port Angeles High School alumni and former Wilder Baseball Club standout. He recently signed a letter of intent to continue his baseball career and finish his bachelors degree on athletic scholarship at NCAA Division II Cal-State San Bernardino.

Skagit Valley coach Grady Tweit had this to say about Hall’s work ethic.

“Baseball has a saying in the program, ‘Be a Good Cardinal!’ This is not only on the field but off it as well, it is an all-encompassing a way of life. Wyatt on the daily walked the walk.

“His tireless effort to be the best player, teammate, student and friend is on display every day. This is why he had the success at Skagit Valley College that he had. Wyatt was [voted] NWAC North Region Second Team Infielder, hitting .324, with six homeruns, and 77 total bases. While being our leadoff hitter and starting shortstop, he also maintained a 3.76 GPA.”
