Some history was made in Coshocton County, highlighted in the All-Tribuneland player of the year awards from the fall sports season.
Senior Laura Frazee and sophomore Laura Crawford share Player of the Year honors in volleyball after guiding Ridgewood to Inter-Valley Conference, district and regional titles in making the school’s first state final four appearance in volleyball.
Crawford, who had knee surgery in 2012, earned IVC and District 5 Player of the Year honors and was a second team All-Ohioan.
Frazee was a first-team honoree in the IVC and District 5, and was selected to be a representative at the district and state all-star matches.
Honorable mention goes to River View senior Andi Daugherty, who was first team East Central Ohio League, first team All-East District and third team All-Ohio.
In football, Ridgewood senior linebacker Garrett Bethel gets the nod after making 104 tackles — including 62 solos and three for loss — three sacks and an interception. He also was named first team All-East District.
River View’s Brandon Adams finished a close second after rushing for 1,198 yards with 10 touchdowns in garnering second-team honors.
Other players considered were River View’s Casey Turnbill and MJ Carey, Coshocton’s Gavin Gray and Dom Johns and Ridgewood’s Tommy Layman and Zach Donley.
In boys soccer, Coshocton’s Colton Jordan adds another Player of the Year honor to go with his ECOL one. The senior finished with 25 goals and 27 assists in earning first-team All-East District and second team All-Ohio. He also helped the Redskins reach the regionals for the fourth consecutive season.
Honorable mention goes to Coshocton senior Ian Hartley, who had 39 goals in earning first team league and district honors.
The girls soccer Player of the Year award was given to Coshocton junior Emily Hartley, who was a first team ECOL, All-East District and All-Ohio selection. She finished with 27 goals and seven assists.
Honorable mention went to Coshocton senior goalkeeper Hannah Michael, who had eight shutouts his season and set the school record for career shutouts with 27.
In cross country, River View senior Corey Miller finished the season as Runner of the Year after leading his team to ECOL and district titles. He also just missed qualifying for state with a 20th-place finish at the regional.
As the top runner and one of less than a handful of girls running cross country at Ridgewood, senior Jessica McCoun was honorable mention.
Coshocton’s Gage Bosson was Player of the Year in golf and River View’s Ross Anglin was honorable mention. Both earned second team All-East District honors, but Bosson got the edge after helping his team reach the district tournament.
Expect some of the same names and maybe some fresh faces during the winter sports season.
