ST. GEORGE — Dream Weaver, Cedar High’s standout shortstop, leads the recently selected all-region softball team as Region 9’s most valuable player.

Weaver, along with fellow all-region first team members Pua Johnson, Bryton Holyoak and Denim Henkel, helped lead the Lady Reds to an undefeated 12-0 record during the regular season. After capturing the region championship, Cedar won its first three state playoff games and ended up placing third in the 4A state tournament.

Weaver finished her senior season with a .567 batting average, driving in 32 runs and scoring 43 times. She hit 12 home runs and 14 doubles during the season and only struck out once, said her head coach and father, Chris Weaver.

Defensively, she made just two errors out of 101 opportunities at shortstop.

Weaver, who has signed to play softball for Southern Utah University starting this fall, graduated from Cedar High with honors and a 4.0 GPA. She made the 4A Academic All-State team in three sports, volleyball, basketball and softball.

Following are the Region 9 all-region softball team selections, as voted upon by the coaches:
