Gallia Academy had four people selected to the All-SEOAL baseball teams for the 2014 season, as voted on by the coaches within the league.
The Blue Devils — who won their fourth straight SEOAL crown while sharing this year’s title with Jackson — had three players named to the first team, as well as one coach.
Senior Ty Warnimont came away with his third straight selection to the first team, while classmate Gus Graham picked up his second straight nomination to the first team. Senior Gage Childers also earned his first all-league selection as a first teamer.
The Blue Devils did not have an honorable mention choice as no other GAHS players were nominated.
Jackson came away with four first-team honorees, followed by Gallia Academy with three. Logan, Warren and Portsmouth each had two selections to the first team as well.
Jackson and Gallia Academy shared special honors as both GAHS skipper Rich Corvin and JHS frontman Josh McGraw split coach of the year honors. Warnimont picked up his second straight SEOAL player of the year honors while sharing this spring’s award with Nathan Parks of the Ironmen.
