Alex Karns

Coeur d’Alene High

The senior pitcher-utility player kept the Vikings in the game on the mound, and drove in the game-winning run in the 10th inning as Coeur d’Alene beat Post Falls 5-4 last Tuesday to win its first regional title since 2014, and advance to state for the first time since 2017. “As his dad, I couldn’t be more proud,” Coeur d’Alene coach Erik Karns said. “It’s very hard to be a coach’s kid. But to come up big in that final inning was huge for him, and for us. Obviously, I’m very proud of him as a son.”
