VC freshman outfielder Steele Ledford, sophomore shortstop Rudy Aguilar and freshman outfielder TJ Foreman led 10 Pirates on the All-Western State Conference North Division team as voted upon by conference coaches last month. Ledford was named first team All-WSC and won the Gold Glove Award for his defense while Aguilar was also named first team All-WSC. Foreman, meanwhile, was second team All-WSC and also earned a Gold Glove Award.
Ledford and Aguilar were the Pirates' lone first team selections. Ledford, from Thousand Oaks High School, led Ventura with a .371/.466/.581 batting line with 23 hits in conference play, eight for extra bases. He scored 20 runs in 17 WSC North games and won the Gold Glove Award with a .981 fielding percentage in right field with 53 put-outs and one error. Aguilar, a product of Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, hit .337/.372/.434 in 20 conference outings, with 28 hits and 18 RBI.
Foreman was a second team All-WSC honoree while winning the Gold Glove Award. He had a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage with 45 catches in left field.
The Pirates finished the 2018 season with an overall record of 20-20, 10-10 in conference play. They finished tied for third place in the ultra-competitive WSC North Division, missing the post season by a single game.
