The Ohio Valley Publishing area had three players selected to the 2015 All-Tri-Valley Conference Ohio Division golf teams, as determined by both seasonal stroke play and by the coaches within the league.
Vinton County led the selections process with four choices, which included coach of the year honors for Terry Hale. Austin Ward won player of the year honors for the Vikings, while Alec Boothe and Noah Waddell also earned all-league accolades.
Meigs finished second overall with a 37-5 league mark, which led to two selections in sophomore Levi Chapman and junior Chase Whitlatch. Senior Logan Sheets — last year’s league POY — was River Valley’s lone choice after the Raiders finished fifth overall with a 16-26 mark.
Athens and Wellston both had two choices apiece after tying for third place with identical records of 17-25. Alexander (11-31) and Nelsonville-York (9-33) each had one selection after rounding out the bottom two spots in the nine-team field.
Ward, Boothe, Whitlatch, Sheets and Blake Royster of Wellston were repeat selections to the squad from a season ago.
