3/13/2014 3:00:00 PM Three Lady Pacers are 'All Conference'
The Ohio River Valley Conference has announced its All Conference team in girls basketball, and several members of the Switzerland County Lady Pacer program have been honored.
Three Lady Pacers: Eve Galbreath, Makenzie Mathews, and Brooke Todd, earned inclusion on the All Conference team. Athletes are nominated by their coaches; and conference coaches then select the team members, and are not allowed to vote for players from their own squads.
Joining the Lady Pacer trio on the 14-member squad were: Emily Cumberworth and Hayley Schwarte from South Ripley; Jordan Day, Jenna Hughes, Sydney Keene; and Brooklyn Ronsheim of Jac-Cen-Del; Taylor Grote of Shawe Memorial; Debbie Hardy and Cass Lawson from Southwestern; and Amber Sporleder and Sydney Willhite from Rising Sun.
But those weren't the only honorees from Switzerland County.
Senior Erika Coy was honored with the ORVC Mental Attitude Award for the season; and Lady Pacer head coach Ashley Kitts earned Coach of the Year honors, sharing the award with Jac-Cen-Del's Scott Smith.
At the varsity level, Switzerland County tied for the conference championship with Jac-Cen-Del; and Switzerland County and Jac-Cen-Del also tied for the ORVC title in the junior varsity standings.
