On Monday, the OVC released their all-conference honors and Scioto County’s lone school in the OVC, Portsmouth, was well represented in the three fall sports among the honorees.
The Trojans football team finished their first season under head coach Bruce Kalb with a 7-4 record and the school’s first playoff appearance since 2007. Their week ten victory over Ironton gave the Trojans a second place finish in the OVC standings behind only Gallia Academy.
The following Trojans were named to the All-OVC first team: Talyn Parker, Colin Boehm, Brian Carey-Knipp, Bryson Morrow, and Ty Pendleton. Eric Purdy and Ben Lester were the two Trojans who were named as honorable mentions in the OVC honors.
The Lady Trojans volleyball team finished tied for 6th place in the OVC standings with Coal Grove. Portsmouth’s two players named to the all-OVC team were Megan Calvin who was named to the first team, and Jaiden Rickette who was named as an honorable mention. The Lady Trojans lost their opening round sectional game to Minford on October 16th.
In the first year of their newly revived soccer program under new head coach Noah Fannin, the Trojans had three members from their inaugural team named to the All-OVC honors list. Senior Myquel McKinley was named to the OVC first team, while teammates Joel Bowling and Jay-Lind Thomas were named honorable mentions.
Congrats to all those who were named to their respective teams!
