Over the weekend, a trio of superbly talented South Webster soccer hands found themselves on the Ohio Scholastic Soccer Coaches Association (OSSCA) All-State teams for their work as student-athletes on the pitch as Northwest’s Evan Throckmorton earned first team boys Division III honors while Samuel Holstein collected second team honors in representing South Webster on the list. Wheelersburg’s Madison Humble added second team honors on the girls standpoint to round out a strong year for the Scioto County area from a soccer standpoint.
Each of the three All-State soccer athletes, along with the three All-State volleyball hands that have already been announced (Ellie Ruby, Jensen Warnock, and Lexi Smith), will be profiled in separate feature stories beginning next month by the Daily Times.

New Boston/SOMC Basketball League to commence
The New Boston/SOMC and Challenger Basketball League will be conducting signups for its annual league, which include boys and girls from the grades of kindergarten through sixth grade for the New Boston/SOMC League and all ages for the Challenger Basketball League, on seven different dates from late October through mid-November.
The league costs $30 to enroll one player, $50 for two players, and $60 for three or more individuals to participate in. Teams from other schools can sign up teams in the league. Those units will need to list a roster with school name, the grade and age for each player on said roster, and any issues for the aforementioned players on the list. Coaches will also have to have their name and phone number on roster. Teams will have to call or email for their league fee cost.
The league, which is in its 14th year of operation, introduced SOMC to the team in 2010. In 2013, the New Boston Challenger League was officially formed as part of the league.
“I am very blessed and happy to have seen so many players come through this league and go on to do great things,” Steven Hamilton, New Boston Village Administrator, said. “The league’s logo has always been, ‘It’s all for the kids.’
The last day for signups, as far as the league is concerned, can be done at the New Boston Community Center, 3980 Rhodes Avenue, New Boston, Ohio 45562 on Friday, Nov. 17th. The time for sign ups is from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
