For immediate release:
PORTLAND, Oregon (July 12, 2019) -- Baylee Touey, one of the most accomplished 4A girls athletes Oregon has seen, has made Oregon Sports Awards history.
Touey was named the Johnny Carpenter 4A/3A/2A/1A Prep Girls Athlete of the Year by the Oregon Sports Awards’ voting panel for the third straight year. She now joins former Jesuit High multi-sport star Liz Brenner as the only female athlete in state history to have received the honor multiple times.
From North Valley High in Grants Pass, Touey won the award over finalists Emma Bennion (St. Mary’s) and Aspen Slifka (Banks). She called into NBC Sports Northwest’s “The Noe Show” with Brian Noe on Friday to accept her award.
Future single-sport prep award announcements can also be heard live on KJOR’s RIP City Radio 620.
Sport Oregon and NBC Sports Northwest revealed its three other Johnny Carpenter Prep Athletes of the Year earlier this week: Here they are:
6A/5A boys: Micah Williams (Benson)
6A/5A girls: Cameron Brink (Southridge)
4A/3A/2A/1A boys: Blake Gobel (Banks)
Touey cemented herself as arguably the greatest athlete to pass through North Valley this past year. She again played three sports for the Knights; soccer, basketball and track and field.
Touey earned her second consecutive 4A Girls Soccer Player of the Year honor in January after becoming one of just six players in Oregon high school history to score more than 100 goals for her career. She finished the season with 90 points, 40 goals and 10 assists to lead the Knights to a 14- 2 overall record, co-Skyline Conference Championship and an appearance in the 4A Girls Soccer State Championship quarterfinals.
She capped her career with 262 total points, 115 goals and 32 assists.
Touey was a finalist for the Prep Girls Soccer Player of the Year award for the second consecutive year. Sport Oregon and NBC Sports Northwest presented Katie Duong (Jesuit) with the honor on Thursday.
In May, Touey became a four-time 4A state champion in the 200m and 400m and also won her third straight state title in the 100m. She is now the school record-holder in all three events.
Her 400m time at the state meet (56.24) seconds was tops in the state’s all-classification rankings this spring. Touey’s 200m and 100m times of 24.63 and 12.10 seconds ranked second and fifth, respectively.
Touey was named the Athlete of the Meet and helped North Valley finish fourth as a team (50 points) at the 4A Girls Track and Field Championships.
She won a total of 20 individual events for the Knights. Touey helped North Valley finish second as a team at the Skyline Conference Championships as well.
Touey will now play soccer and run track at Southern Oregon University. She also received an opportunity to run track at Oregon State but decided on SOU because of the chance to continue playing both sports.
