The Palm Beach Post has announced its 2022 All-County Coach of the Year and softball team. Kevin Drake has earned the COY honor for the second consecutive year and four ThunderWolves players were named to the All-County team: Chandler Barry, Luna Curran, Patticake Parke, and Bella Ruggiero. Alexa Muller received an Honorble Mention. NOTE: All-County selections are finalists for The Post's Player of the Year award and will be invited to the Palm Beach County High School Sports Awards Show on Wednesday, June 1, in West Palm Beach.
In selecting Drake COY, the Post said: "Drake's first season at Oxbridge saw a 6-11 finish. Two years later in 2017, Drake would lead the ThunderWolves to their first state championship trophy matchup. With the exception of the pandemic-altered season in 2019-20 and a region final exit in 2020, Oxbridge has made the Final Four every year, including this year's 23-2-1 run to Clermont." During the past two seasons under Drake's leadership, the team has compiled an eye-popping record of 43-4-2!
