Postseason awards have been rolling in since the close of the fall sports seasons and a trio of local soccer players have been recognized by the Ohio Scholastic Soccer Coaches Association with Division III Second Team All-State honors.
North Adams junior Lakyn Hupp, who shattered all the school’s scoring records this fall and was also honored as an All-SHAC player and First Team All-District, was named Second Team All-State by the OSSCA, as well as a pair of West Union Dragons, sophomore Heidi Hunter and senior Andre Wolke.
Hunter was also named First Team All-District and all-SHAC, while Wolke also earned First Team All-District recognition as well as All-SHAC.
“I am really proud of these players’ accomplishments,” said West Union girls and boys soccer coach Kevin Hunter.  “Andre is only one of three male all-state soccer players in school history and Heidi is the first female soccer player at West Union to ever receive such a high honor.”
The Southern Hills Athletic Conference was also represented on the OSSCA Division III All-State Teams by a quarter of Lynchburg Clay Mustangs.  Hannah Binkley was named to the First Team, while Peyton Scott, Austin Hilt, and Kyle Luneke were placed on the Second Team.
