A total of 11 people from the Ohio Valley Publishing area were selected to the 2012 All-Tri-Valley Conference volleyball squads in both the Ohio and Hocking divisions, as voted on by the coaches of the respective leagues.
Ten athletes and one coach were named to the All-TVC teams from the tri-county area, and all but one of those selections went to programs in the TVC Hocking Division. Eastern led the area with five selections, while South Gallia and Southern had two apiece. Wahama had one choice to round out the TVC Hocking selections, and Meigs had one choice in the TVC Ohio Division.
The Lady Eagles went unbeaten in TVC Hocking play for a second straight year en route to a repeat championship, which allowed EHS coach Howie Caldwell to again be named the TVC Hocking Division coach of the year. Waterford senior Brooke Drayer was named the TVC Hocking Most Valuable Player.
Seniors Ally Hendrix and Gabby Hendrix were selected to the All-TVC team for the Lady Eagles, as were juniors Jordan Parker and Madison Rigsby. Parker, Rigsby and Gabby Hendrix were all first-time recipients of this award in volleyball, while Ally Hendrix was a repeat selection from a year ago.
The fifth-place Lady Rebels were represented by seniors Meghan Caldwell and Ellie Bostic. Bostic is a first-time honoree, while Caldwell came away with a repeat selection.
The sixth-place Lady Tornadoes were represented by junior Jordan Huddleston and freshman Ali Deem, a pair of first-time choices for the All-TVC volleyball squad. Wahama senior Kelsey Zuspan was also a repeat choice for All-TVC Hocking honors.
The Lady Marauders finished last in TVC Ohio play and landed only one player on the all-league squad, and that honor went to senior Emily Kinnan — a first-time selection.
Alexander’s Nick Wendt won coach of the year honors after the Lady Spartans won the TVC Ohio. Macy Brickles of AHS and Kaytlin Maiden of Nelsonville-York shared the most valuable player award. Maiden was the lone MVP in the TVC Ohio in 2011.
