GALLIPOLIS, Ohio — The Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division has released the 2017 all-league team, as selected by the coaches from within the nine-team league, featuring 13 players from Meigs, Mason and Gallia counties.

On the girls all-league team, seven locals were selected led by league runner-up Eastern (14-2 TVC Hocking) with three honorees. EHS senior Laura Pullins — who was named co-Most Valuable Player along with Waterford junior Alli Kern — earned her third straight All-TVC Hocking honor. Meanwhile, EHS junior Elizabeth Collins and sophomore Jess Parker are both on the all-league squad for the second straight season.

The Lady Tornadoes (8-8), who finished tied for fourth in the league with Federal Hocking, landed two players on the all-league team in seniors Faith Teaford and Macie Michael. Teaford is making her third straight appearance on the All-TVC Hocking team, while Michael is a first time honoree.

South Gallia (2-14) and Wahama (0-16) finished eighth and ninth respectively, and each landed one player on the all-league team. SGHS junior Erin Evans and WHS sophomore Maddy VanMatre each received their first all-league honor for their efforts this winter.

The girls Coach of the Year was Federal Hocking’s Jeremy Tolson.

On the boys all-league team, six locals were selected led by Southern and Wahama with two each.

The Tornadoes (9-7) claimed fourth in the league and were represented on the All-TVC Hocking team by seniors Tylar Belvins and Crenson Rogers. Blevins is a first time selection, while Rogers earned his way onto the list for the second straight season.

Eastern (8-8) finished tied for fifth with Belpre and was represented on the all-league team by Jett Facemyer. This is the second straight year that Facemyer has made the All-TVC Hocking team.

Wahama (7-9) claimed seventh in the league and landed senior Philip Hoffman and junior Noah Litchfield on the all-league team. Hoffman is a repeat selection, while Litchfield is a first time honoree.

South Gallia (2-14) took eighth in the nine-team league and was represented on the All-TVC Hocking team by Caleb Henry, a sophomore and a first time honoree.

The TVC Hocking boys Most Valuable Player was Waterford’s Jordan Welch, while the Coach of the Year award went to Wildcats’ head coach Tom Simms. Simms — who was co-Coach of the Year last winter — led the Wildcats to an unbeaten campaign in the league.
