CENTENARY, Ohio — Gallia Academy had a total of three athletes earn all-league honors on the Ohio Valley Conference cross country teams for both boys and girls this past 2020 fall season, which were based on final placements at the annual OVC championship meet.

Seniors Sarah Watts and Tristin Crisenbery were respectively represented on the first team in both girls and boys, while senior Maddie Stewart was the first of two honorable mention selections.

Watts — who won the OVC girls race as a freshman and also as a senior — is a 3-time first team honoree on the all-league team.

Both Crisenbery and Stewart were first-time recipients of All-OVC accolades in cross country.

Mark McFann of Rock Hill was named the coach of the year for both boys and girls teams.
