Gallia Academy had five players selected to the All-SEOAL softball teams for the 2014 season, as voted on by the coaches within the league.


The Blue Angels — who finished third out of five teams with a 4-4 league mark — had three players named to the first team and two other selections on the honorable mention list.


Senior Maggie Westfall came away with her third straight selection to the first team, while classmate Violet Pelfrey picked up her second straight nomination to the first team. Senior Kiersten Stanley also earned her first all-league selection as a first teamer.


Junior Kendra Barnes and freshman Jenna Meadows were also chosen as honorable mention representatives for the Blue Angels.


GAHS joined league champion Jackson and runner-up Warren with three first-team selections, while Logan and Portsmouth each came away with two honorees. Each of the five schools also had two honorable mention choices.
