MVC Baseball: Sophomore Devanney, junior Vargas earn MVPs

It was a spring for the underclassmen in the Merrimack Valley Conference as the baseball coaches recently announced their postseason awards.

Central Catholic sophomore shortstop Cam Devanney, who batted .414 with 20 runs and 20 RBIs in 20 games, was named the Division 1 Player of the Year. Meanwhile, Lawrence High junior lefty Joan Vargas, who went 5-3 with a 1.91 ERA, earned the Division 2 Player of the Year honor.

Each helped lead his club to a divisional co-championship as the Raiders split the large with Chelmsford, while Lawrence and Billerica shared the small.

Here’s a look at the award winners.
