A total of 10 people from the Ohio Valley Publishing area were chosen to All-Tri-Valley Conference girls basketball teams in both the Ohio and Hocking divisions for the 2012-13 season, as voted on by the coaches within their respective leagues.
Each of the five area schools — Meigs, Southern, Eastern, Wahama and South Gallia — had at least one representative on the respective lists, with two programs managing more than one selection for the past season of play. One player and one coach were also rewarded with some special end-of-year honors.
The Eastern girls led all area teams with four selections, as the Lady Eagles tied with Waterford for the total number of honorees after each squad earned a share of the 2012-13 TVC Hocking crown with matching 15-1 marks. Each team had three players and one coach chosen, as John Burdette and Jerry Close shared coach of the year honors.
Junior Jenna Burdette was the unanimous choice for Most Valuable Player in the Hocking Division after leading her team in both scoring (18.1) and assists (5.0) per game. Burdette shared the award with Waterford senior Brooke Drayer just last season.
Juniors Jordan Parker and Erin Swatzel were also chosen to the team for EHS, with Parker also being a repeat selection to the all-league team. It is the first All-TVC honor for Swatzel in basketball.
South Gallia (12-4) finished third in the league standings and had two selections in seniors Meghan Caldwell and Ellie Bostic. Caldwell is a repeat choice for the TVC Hocking team, while Bostic earned her first all-league selection in hoops.
Southern finished seventh overall with a 4-12 mark and had one choice in sophomore Celestia Hendrix. Wahama tied with Miller for eighth place with a 2-14 record and also had one selection in junior Sierra Carmichael.
Other repeat selections include Brooke Drayer and Chelsey Paxton of Waterford, as well as Ali Bray of Miller.
Meigs had just one representative on the TVC Ohio Division squad, as junior Brittany Krautter earned her first selection for the sixth place Lady Marauders (0-10).
Dominique Doseck of Athens was named MVP, while Athens coach Wayne Horsley came away with coach of the year honors after the Lady Bulldogs went unbeaten in TVC Ohio competition.
Other repeat selections include Caitlyn Owings of Vinton County, Shelby True of Nelsonville-York, Jordan Davis of Wellston and Kaylee Koker of Alexander. Cheyenne Singer of Fed Hock also won all-league honors as a freshman.
