The Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division has released its 2016 all-league golf team, as selected by the coaches from the league.

Seven of the 16 individuals earning TVC Hocking golf honors represent the Ohio Valley Publishing area including three Tornadoes, two Eagles, one White Falcon and one Rebel.

Southern — the third place team in the league with a 11-3 record — was represented by sophomores Jensen Anderson and Jarrett Hupp, as well as head coach Jeff Caldwell, who was co-coach of the year along with Waterford’s Brandyn Offenberger. Anderson also earned a spot on the TVC Hocking list as a freshman.

Eastern finished second in the league with a 12-2 record and was represented on the all-league team by senior John Little and sophomore Ryan Harbour. This is Harbour’s second straight year on the all-league golf team.

Wahama claimed sixth in the league with a 5-9 record and was represented by junior Anthony Ortiz.

South Gallia was eighth in the TVC Hocking with a 1-13 record, and landed junior Curtis Haner on the all-league squad for the second straight year.

League champion Waterford — which finished with a 13-1 mark — was represented on the all-league team by Jordan Welch, Wes Jenkins and Travis Pottmeyer. Welch, a senior who was also named Player of the Year, has been on the all-league squad in each of his four years.

Belpre and Miller finished tied for fourth in the league with matching 6-8 records. BHS was represented by Maddie Roby and Hunter Gilbert, while Hunter Dutiel and Blaine Needham represented the Falcons. Nathan Riley was the lone representative for Trimble, which finished seventh in the TVC Hocking with a 2-12 mark.

Federal Hocking did not have a golf team this fall.
