Postseason accolades are rolling in for all of the 2017 fall sports and recently the golf coaches of the Southeast District chose their All-District Teams.
Three of the four Adams County schools were represented on the All-District squads, beginning with Division II girls, where, after a fine season on the links, West Union junior DeAnna Caraway was named to the All-District First Team.
Also in Division III girls, West Union junior Lindsey Daniel was named Honorable Mention.
The Player of the Year in Girls Division II was Waterford’s Kenzie Dietz and Waterford coach Cris Baker was named Coach of the Year.
Adams County was heavily represented on the Boys Division III All-District Teams, where West Union’s Elijah McCarty capped off an outstanding high school career with yet another honor, this time being named the Southeast District Division III Player of the Year.
McCarty and the word “medalist” went together all season, one where the Dragons senior star made another trip to the OHSAA State Tournament.
West Union was not the only county school represented on the Division III First Team as the North Adams Green Devils occupied two spots, with seniors Noah Lung and Bryant Lung making half of the First Team Adams County golfers.
The Green Devils also had a golfer on the Second Team All-District squad in senior Colt Shumaker, whose play late in the season was instrumental in helping the Devils win a Southeast District title and a second consecutive berth in the state tourney.
Making Honorable Mention in Boys Division III were West Union senior Eli Fuller and then two golfers who will be returning to their respective teams in 2018, North Adams junior Carson Hall and Manchester junior Dylan Colvin.
Rounding out the Division III All-District awards was a big one as North Adams head coach Ammon Mitchell had the distinction of being named as the 2017 Southeast District Division III Coach of the Year, after guiding his Devils back to state.
